Has anyone been here? My fiance and I went on Saturday. I was surprised at how good it was. The service, the atmosphere, everything was great. We had the make your own stir fry dish. for $8.50 a plate we got to choose our own vegetables(as much as we wanted from a cart) and what meat we wanted.(we both chose steak) and then whether you wanted noodles,rice whatever on the bottom. Our total bill was only like $25 and we had enough leftover for dinner the next day. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a cheap dinner out, oh and on Tuesdays its only $4 a plate for the make your own stirfry deal.

isn't open sesame a bar though?? as in no minors?? and is it always crowded like smuggler's?? do you need to always reserve a table before going?

I have gone there quite a few times and i have only ever made reservations twice i believe. Both times I am sure we could have had seats w/o a reservation but the restaurant does get full ! I generally go a little later at night... say around 9 so I get tables easier than at 7 I guess!

Great place for a quiet peaceful dinner! I love it!

i went in today. it was a good deal, just like mongolie grill but not like $16 the time i went in! i'm a pig lol

I went today too because I read this review.. ha ha ha
what a waste of time... I shoulda known better than to go in cuz I knew it was a Mongolie style restaurant.
and if you don't know how to cook then you don't know what sauces to put in....
a strange concoction I created.
The Crab Wontons were stuffed with what tasted like baby food.
Hot and Sour soup so tangy that I couldn't finish it.
And potstickers that didn't taste like potstickers.
he he he, I was thinking it was cheap too.. but it wasn't!
