This is operated by the same folks that own the popular Open Sesame in Belmont Shores, Long Beach. I've bee there on a thursday night and it took 40minutes to be seated. There is no line here in Manhattan Beach yet, but the menu is just as good. I like the outdoor patio with glass walls. It's nicely decorated on the inside too. Not too fancy, very nice. The staff is nice in both restaurants. I'm sure Open Sesame will get popular in Manhattan Beach Soon.
Favorite Dish: They have a oiled potatoes dish that they are famous for. Cooked in onions and a very nice oil, it is something I always order. Their menu is vegetarian friendly with lots of hummus and other type dips. All of their Falafel dishes are great. I love the very light sauce in their falafel pita sandwich. Their lamb and chicken is good too.
