Has anyone been? I have not heard a peep about this place. Place looks a bit daunting with only 5 items on the menu.

    Nope, but I've been curious too.

    I remember hearing a little bit, but for the life of me i can't remember where now. I just remember reading a pretty unfavorable review. It seems worth it just for curiosity's sake though.

      Found the website: http://www.africanvillagerestaurant.c...

      That is the more current menu. From one of my sources they claim that the owner might live at the restaurant. This should be confirmed quickly say perhaps this weekend!!

        Wow that does look very interesting indeed. Irving has surely changed a bunch since I was a kid.

      i've been curious about this place for quite a few weeks, i think it was possibly even a month ago that it piqued my interest, has it been open that long? i remember seeing something about it online. it may have been something negative. i think i heard that bit about the owner living there, too. it seems unique

        The menu LH originally posted mentions a few west african dishes, while the new menu from the website mentions east africa specifically, and has dishes from all over northern africa. This makes me think that there was an ownership change at some point.

          Definitely a change of menu, and probably of ownership, since I went there a couple of years ago and posted about it. At that time they had the best plaintains I've ever enjoyed, and nothing in the way of East or North African food.
