This restaurant is like a big warm family! Food is like at home - been cooked with love and served with care.
There is a drink that cannot be found anywhere else - YASMINA ( a must try for those who love spicy drinks!)
Will be back to this place soon again!!

This the first time I ate there. It was the best cleanest Lebanese food I have ever had.
The server was friendly, we didn't have to wait long for our food.

I had the best waitress. Tall beautiful young lady waited on me the entire night with special care to a birthday treat. The sweet-treat was so thoughtful. I'll definitely return in the near future.

This was my second visit to Open Sesame and it was just as good as the first. The staff were welcoming and accessible without hanging over the table. The food was yummy -- the lamb shank with rice was the nightly special and it was SO good, as was the Kafta. But the highlight was the Chicken Tawook, with my choice of sides. The atmosphere is romantic, with a beautiful sheltered patio. This is a neighborhood spot I will always feel like going to.

Great little quaint spot, nice looking location. Service was great, waiters couldn't have been more attentive! Food was delicious especially the hummus, prices could be a little lower for value but not overly expensive.
