Love this place but because everyone loves it too it's difficult getting an inside table. To go is perfect too! Enjoy

After 20 years of wonderful Chinese food in San Francisco, Thai became my Asian food of choice. My sister was visiting and wanted to go out for Chinese. We decided on Sesame Inn and were delighted. Great food, friendly operators and quick service. I shouldn't even be writing this review because clearly there are a lot of people who go... More

Our son's favorite Chinese place. The grandchildren have food allergies and they are very careful if you tell them (ex: no shellfish). the place is small but they deliver and are always busy with takeout

Local, family owned restaurant with fresh and delicious food, but also warm .service. However, the secret is already out because you'll have to be patient, but it's definitely worth every savory bite.

Fresh and delicious! It's a small establishment for eating in, but we've never had to wait long, if at all. Great for take out and worth the price! Favorite dishes are the war wonton soup, shrimp and baby eggplant, and the chicken and mushrooms with snow peas.

The decor here doesn't say "fine dining"' but the food sure is top of the line. Several really good Chinese restaurants have closed or relocated in this area in the past several years and I was despairing of ever finding an equal to Chen's. Well, I found it. I went here for lunch and the small restaurant was packed. For... More
