Open Sesame Does It For Me

With Open Sesame you need to have some patience getting from the "Please Wait To Be Seated" sign to actually sitting down at a table...because this place is popular...and finding a parking space can be challenging on a busy Friday night.

The "Fresh Asian" menu is pretty extensive and the value is fair to good, plus you can make your own Asian rice or noodle bowl with a myriad of choices from fresh veggies to sauces to herbs, nuts and other goodies. All you have to do is choose your carbohydrate of choice, your meat and then pile a bowl as high as you can with options. Beware though of getting too complicated. I suggest keeping it simple, adding some salty nuts or sunflower seeds and adding three scoops of sauce.  The bowls are not priced by weight; starting at $8.95 and your meat choice add-on ranges from $3.50 to $4.50.

With the restaurant being so busy service was slow but our server was nice and very helpful. I highly recommend reservations.
