We stopped in here for lunch and I just don't get it - this place is FILTHY. There was a Betty Boop lamp on our table COVERED in crust and old food. When I asked the waitress to remove it she looked at me like I was out of my mind then yelled across the restraurant to someone else, " They want me to remove the lamp!" - so much for being discreet! They moved us to another table with a dirty hole encrusted lamp. Everything is covered in layers of dust EVERYTHING. If this is the attention they pay to the front that people see I can't even imagine what the kitchen looks like. Service was mediocre at best - I honestly can't believe we even ate here. Bleech. Maybe all these people going at night don't see the filth? I took pictures of the lamps and posted to Yelp because I couldn't believe how dirty they were. Ironically right afterward stock pictures from their website were posted. Someone jokingly said they have their friends post good reviews over cleaning the place - wouldn't that be easier? I don't get it?

Couldn't believe this exists in Danbury, so cute and so good! It is edgy and for it's own audience, but I am it!

I love everything I've ate here. I can't even give you a favorite. I make a half hour trip for their hummus. I want some right now, but it's 3:30 on a Sunday and there closed :( . The restaurant is so cozy, I almost wanna come in my pj's lol. It feels like home. Everyone is so nice!! You have to try it.

This is a great restaurant! We eat here often and the food is always delicious. The menu changes with healthy choices or items in rich yummy sauces. I always enjoy the house salad (don't forget the feta) and then a tasty meal. When ever we are disappointed elsewhere I always say..."we should have gone to Sesame"!

our 1st visit to sesame seed and we really liked it. the baba-ganoush and hummous appetiser combo was delicious.

the menu had a wide variety of dishes, i hear the menu changes frequently and we had no problem finding many enticing entrees. the dressing on the house salad is crazy! my husband enjoyed his sesame mahi which came with brown rice and string beans. i ordered raviloi stuffed with veggies and covered with sweet potato sauce with steamed veggies and it was good, except a little heavy on the sauce. but the restaurant is laid-back and cozy, even though it was very busy and packed you felt comfortable and able to carry on a conversation. entrees ranged in the mid-teen$. we're glad we tried it!

PROS: price, variety, friendly service, relaxed atmosphere
CONS:

As someone already pointed out, their Sesame Seed Salad is amazing; light, zesty lemon dressing (that they refuse to give me the recipe for...c'est la vie) and great array of nutritious sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, feta cheese, tomatoes, etc., etc. In addition, I think I could drink their hummus. It is absolutely the best I have ever had. Their dinners are great and offer a lot of meatless options; everything from soups to appetizers to entrees. The waitstaff seems a bit lackadaisical, but they're friendly enough, and the prices couldn't be more reasonable. The restaurant itself is a building that looks like it should be torn down, but somehow it just adds to the laissez-faire embiance. Plus, it's just plain cool that they have an original "Mr. Wizard" science kit up on one of the shelves.

PROS: Great food (yay for hummus!), very reasonable prices, vegetarian selections
CONS: Building code violations. Quite a few of 'em.

Sesame Seed is one of the best restaurants around! They offer amazing middle eastern food, their falafel and tabouli are the best in Danbury! The menu rotates on a nightly basis. Vegetarian selections are delicious. The electic decor is awesomely kitschy, full of odds and ends. I like to play 'eye-spy' while waiting for my food. The waitstaff is friendly and funky, with tons of personality. The Sesame Seed Salad is wonderful, the light lemony dressing is amazing. I can't say enough about this awesome little place!

I love the hummus here and that is why I keep returning. The decor is weird--it looks like your grandmother's attic. Maybe that is the idea? I read an article in the local paper that multiple health code violations have been found here and I wouldn't be surprised because it is probably about as dusty as your grandmother's attic too. But that doesn't seem to stop people from eating here--it is packed for lunch every day.
