Yassa is owned and operated by Madieye and Awa Gueye. They have kept their doors open since 2004 in the face of many challenges. Madieye and Awa both come from the Wolof Tribeof Senegal, and live up to their legacy of generosity with the size of the portions they serve. Yassa is the first Senegalese restaurant in the city and one of the few African restaurants on the Southside of Chicago.
