This bar is very hard to find-- but it adds to its charm. There is really good live music which makes it a lovely place to enjoy drinks and unwind with friends. Talking is not recommended since it is a small place and the band is very close to the audience.

We read about this in Lonley Planet - it was in a central location easy to find. We had a great meal and staff were lovely - it was really busy by the time we left. They even pretended to not notice and laugh when my husband accidently drank the chilli dipping sauce mistaking it for green tea !!!

I have not come to this place lately, however, I have taken friends and family there almost every time coming to Vietnam from the USA. I feel sorry for laosiz and their family and friends to have a bad experience at the place that I think it should rate above average. I will come and check this place out again... More

Same as Mizz Traveller, we chose to eat at Sesame after reading in Lonely Planet that the restaurant was staffed by disadvantaged young people to give them training in a career in catering. I am just surprised that all 4 reviews were very positive and we are the odd ball. We [17 of us, 6 kids 11 adults] went on... More

As 4 Australians, we read about this great spot for lunch & dinner in the lonely planet and thought we should try this out for a Friday lunch. A short cab ride out of town and situated in school-like setting, we were warmly greeted by all the students who were on their lunch break. We loved our light 3 course... More

We read the previous good reviews and decided to check out the place. Tried finding the place on motorbike and it proved to be quite a challenge. After hunting the place down, we were told that the restaurant was closed that day and we should come back the next day. Undaunted, we came the following day and weren't disappointed at... More

Sesame is part of a cooking school that seems to be on 'campus.' It's a little difficult to find on the Xo Viet road (pronounced 'so-viet'.....) since the 153 block has a lot of other buildings and 'schools'. As you walk in the courtyard w/ the little yellow sign (only open few days a week during certain times..so be sure... More
