Because Sesam has been here "forever", most every student that ever was in Trondheim ate at Sesam at some point. Probably while drunk, after a concert or some other happening at Samfundet (the building where Sesam is situated). None can blame them, you`d have to walk quite a bit to find the next fast food place. Now however, I would... More

Used to be the one true king of burgers in town, but now you have way more options - some better, and some worse. The best burgers for your hungry and not-entirely-sober 2 AM self, though. Nothing beats Sesam at 2 AM! ... which is why there WILL be a line stretching out of the joint and onto the street.

"Studentersamfundet" is a landmark in Trondheim and mirrors the fact it is a student City with lots of student. Unlike burger chains, the burgers at Sesam is really high quality burgers. They have two tiny stalls at each side of this roundhouse building at Exeter bridge, with sight towards Nidarosdomen over the river Nidelva. They have a various set of... More

This place is just overrated. Just a basic fastfood joint really. I would say the burgers are better at for example Superhero burger.

Nice fast food restaurant with a small budget. You can choose the size of the burger in all burger options. Also you should buy the fries, they are good as well. It stays open until 3am on fridays and saturdays.

This place is overrated. Just a normal fastfoodjoint, not as fantastic as it's hyped up to be. If you're on your way home drunk it might be acceptable, but I would recomend going elsewhere if not.

Sesam! Most awesome burger place in Trondheim! Their burgers are really tasty, and the staff is friendly. Student discount at certain times. Totally worth it!

The burgers here are fantastic. If you are lucky, you get to meet at talk to the owner. He's a very charismatic and interesting guy.

Good solid burger, but you can get Turkish seasonings and styled meat if you chose or other funky options. There are 6 sizes of meat to fit your budget. I got the 100gr which was the smallest, but it was totally satisfying for my quickly dwindling budget.

Simply some of the best hamburgers available. Careful and attentive staff, interesting and often crowded sitting area, but: the food is excellent!
