I come here before dinner crowds for some quiet time and always enjoy it. No reservations, no hassle. The service is great, food is great. I think the price is reasonable for the portions you get (I always have to take some home). I love the atmosphere too. My favorite is the Amazing Chicken. I recommend it and recommend this... More

Excellent food. Only issue was the stairs to enter the restaurant. This made it impossible for our relatives to join us for dinner.

Our family of 5 teens and 3 adults went to the Sesame Inn for lunch last weekend. We had never heard of the place but were looking for a place after our "just ducky tour!" Everyone really enjoyed the dishes. The sauces were delicious and light. My son loves pork dumplings and eats them everywhere we go - from NYC... More

We travel about 45 minutes just to eat at the Sesame Inn. We love the variety but always seem to get the same thing since it is a homerun. The wait staff is always so friendly and very attentive. You can definitely taste the quality difference in their products . As far as some of the comments about the restaurant... More

We arrived at this restaurant at 5:30pm and had the entire restaurant to ourselves. We chose this restaurant based on the magazine Pittsburgh places to eat and this restaurant was rated high by reviewers. We were very disappointed...the egg rolls were tasteless, as well as the lemon chicken dish which usually has a deep fried crust and tasty lemon sauce... More

I recently dined at this Sesame Inn location on a Saturday evening around 7:00pm. I was surprised that literally we were the only table in the restaurant (not a single other table!). Normally we go to the North Hills or Mt Lebanon location. This location used to be one of my favorites and was always clean & delicious. Well this... More

Love the amazing chicken, egg rolls, and fried rice. My wife loves the chicken with string beans. One of the top three Chinese restaurants in Pittsburgh.

This place is awesome. it is hidden in Station Square on the second level and so worth discovering. The service is good and the general tso's chicken is a little crisp, a little spicy and a ton of deliciousness. As expected you get tea and soup with your meal and it is very reasonable. My wife and I split the... More

We work in Station Square, so we do frequent the place often. Servers are super nice and know what we want and have half of our orders in before we even sit down. Have tried many items on the menu, love their Amazing chicken and fried rice dishes! Co-workers love the orange chicken and crab rangoons. The decor could be... More
