Everybody had to work or go running late, so the only way to eat before falling asleep was to stop at Sesame Inn after crossing the causeway. It is conveniently located on the frontage road just north of the toll plaza on the west side of the causeway approach. For 4 of us we had: Hot & Sour soup -... More

Always a cut above, have never ordered anything I didn't like. They have excellent food my daughter wants to go every time she visits. Plum wine is wonderful! Always very nice to us.

We eat here regularly. The wine and beer are very cold; the soup, special fried rice and pork entree we always get are delicious.

We had lunch on a sunday at Sesame Inn. There aren't many options in Mandeville on sundays. We have eaten there several times, but, unfortunately, we were disappointed this time. The chicken in my dish was diced. My daughter and I both had brown rice. We were charged $4 extra for the brown rice

This used to be my favorite Chinese restaurant on the Northshore. I noticed the decline in quality of food the last time I ate here at the beginning of the summer, but just thought it was an "off" night. However, tonight's dinner was so disappointing that I will not be going back. What a shame. The food tasted worse than... More

We discovered this place when we tried to eat at Trey Yuen (also very good!) but caught them between lunch and dinner seatings. The helpful employee there told us to try Sesame Inn. It was spectacular! The food is incredible and every member of the staff is first-rate. We've dined there several times since, and have always been just a... More
