open sesame

Rating: 3 out of 5

Open Sesame definitely opens up a box of treasures or pleasurable tasty treats. This is one food joint that does not promote itself as much as it should but lets it food do the talking. It is located very near Survey Park and it’s on the busy E.M. Bypass stretch. In terms of ambience and décor, it is not a Beijing or Big Boss but will suffice for a visit. The restaurant is plain looking and provides comfortable sitting arrangements. However, they do turn out some genuine and reasonably priced Chinese food.

They serve excellent and piping hot soups at reasonable prices. Their soup items, namely chicken wanton soup, chicken hot and sour soup and Thai soup (we had non veg) deserve a special mention in this review. The soups were well made with a good amount of seasoning. After savoring their tasty soup dishes we moved on to their fried rice and chow items. One thing about their fried rice items is that they do not taste dry on the palate. The quantity of both their rice dishes and noodle items were generous and stomach filling. Their non veg chow and rice items had a generous amount of meat in them.

When we were having wet noodles they did not taste soggy. As side dishes, stick to regular dishes like chilli chicken, chilli fish and Sichuan prawn. Be warned, these dishes can be very spicy on their delicate palate. Alternatively, their honey chicken and sweet and sour prawn went well with the rice and noodle dishes we had. The gravy in the sweet and sour dish was thick and the prawn themselves were juicy and tender. Not only is the food service at the restaurant quick and prompt but apparently their home delivery service is lightning fast as well.
