I had wanted to try the Sene Grill for many months but wife didn't want to. I had to volunteer on a Wed. The Grill opens at 11:00 AM and I was there just a little after. The place was empty some of that is...probably where it is located in a strip mall behind the main strip mall area and being from a Midwest Rural area, I presume many people would hesitate to try the food. The food is from Senegal which is located in the Northern west central area of Africa. They have pictures so you know what the food looks like and the gentleman who was manning the register also cooked the food answered any questions. Being a little adventurous I chose the Yassa - Yassa EXQUISITE WHITE RICE WITH VEGETABLE MIX WITH OUR DEVINE MARINATED GRILLED CHICKEN, LAMB, OR TILAPIA SERVED ALONGSIDE A TANGY LEMON ONION SAUCE AND A SPRINKLE OF VEGETABLES TO ADORN. He asked if I wanted it spicy and I said yes. The food took about -5 to 8 minutes to prepare and I aslo bought a soft drink, When the food arrived $7, the plate was very full with the lamb, a spicy onion marinade and rice with mixed fresh vegetables. It was a lot of food for the money. I really enjoyed the food - the spiciness was not blasting hot but a rather tangy reminder which I cut when I ate the rice. I would go back again for the price. The place itself isn't fancy. There are families of Senegalese working at a local factory so I presume take out is more popular than eating in. Looking in the window, you may hesitate to eat here but take the step you will be rewarded by the good different food.More

My wife and I tend to source out the independent restaurants when traveling. SeneGrill is part of SeneStore. We were greeted by the owner and a very enthusiastic patron. He suggested several items on the menu. We sat down to sample an assortment of food....Fayate, thibidea,lamb, chicken wings, grilled chicken, and spring rolls were eaten. Each plate was better than the last. Highly recommended for all who like flavour and good simple service.More

A small Senegalese place with fusion dishes of Senegal influenced entrees. A very pleasant and unique place in a Mid-western town like Sidney.

Small basic dining room, no obvious restroom (maybe through kitchen?). Very friendly service, good simple food.

I just visited for the first time today, and I will absolutely be going back! My fiance ordered the Chawarma and I ordered the Yassa, both were absolutely delicious and super flavorful! We also ordered the egg rolls, which we loved. While being similar in...style to an Asian egg roll, the flavors were completely different and they came with a tangy dipping sauce. The owner asked us if it was our first time, and when we said that it was he cooked up some of the fataya for us to try, and that was amazing too! I loved every single thing that we tried and can't wait to go back and try even more!More

I finally got to try Senestore in Sidney. As much as I love to try new things, the food was a bit too spicy for me. I just need to find which entrees are not as spicy. The people were very nice except we had...asked for water and we never received it. If you like this type of food or like trying new things, I would highly recommend stopping by this restaurant.More

I was excited that TripAdvisor showed me this suggestion for food in Sidney. I love African food and supporting Black owned businesses!! I went in to get dinner and got the Jerk Chicken, Wings for my daughter and wanted to try the Fataya. That was...my FAVORITE!! VERY tasty!! My family loved the food so much, we returned to sit in the next day. The owner's customer service was consistently hospitable and warm. We felt at home in his restaurant and the food was so delicious!! There wasn't a long wait and each bite is filled with flavor. I tried the Chicken Chawarma with rice inside for lunch and and I was so pleased!! EVERYTHING we had was good!! If you love spicy, be sure to get the Jerk Chicken. You will enjoy visiting and will savor every bite!!More
