    Phenomenal Sengelese food

    The food is great here! It may take a while to get your food, but the wait is well worth it. We arrived on Sat at 6:15. There were a few tables filled, but by the time we left it was packed. I have no complaints about this place. If you're in a hurry, you may not want to come since it does take a while. Customer service is excellent though, so you may be able to tell them you're in a rush.

    I eat at this restaurant regularly and no matter how many times I go, the food is excellent. The owner and his wife are as charming as they can be and I think this is a hidden gem. I went last night with my girlfriend and the food was better than ever. I had the grilled Tilapia and she had the grilled Snapper along with the cabbage. It was the best it has ever been last night and I want them to keep up the good wor. Whatever they did to the food yesterday , is what they should do all of the time.

    Yassa is great food with poor service...annoying yet authentic. Lived in The Gambia/Senegal for 2 years and time is on their side. You just have to take it easy and get in the "what do I really have to do that is that important today?" mentality.

    A taste of Senegal in Chicago!

    Whenever my daughter visits Chicago, we grab a bottle of wine or a 6-pack of beer and head to Yassa . I usually order Dibi Chicken w/ Plantains and she orders the Yassa Chicken w/ Rice. We then share the rice and the plantains because the servings are huge. She says the Thiebou Djeun (fish) reminds her of meals she ate when she visited Senegal. I am less adventurous and tend to stick to the chicken dishes. The food is delicious and while the service is somewhat slow, if you have a glass of wine while you're waiting, you begin to relax and get into the spirit of Yassa. With a total bill of $20.00 +tax (no corkage fee), it is hard to beat the value you get here.

    Good Stuff!

    Went to Yassa after seeing it on Check Please, The service was so bad, a young lady who was there to eat ended up helping serve food, no joke! They only had a few items on the menu, so we orderd what they had, one fish dish, one lamb, and one chicken.The food was very good, I will go back but i'll have a snack before i go. Maybe the service is better by now, Step it up Yassa, i would hate to see you close because of bad service.
