First of all Trip Advisor has been showing the wrong location for New Africa. It is NOT situated in SICAP. It is to be found very near to the Boulangerie Jaune in the Sacré Coeur 3 district of Dakar. To be more precise - it's in a little side-street just off the "Boulangerie Jaune" roundabout about 200 metres south of... More

New Africa is one of the best restaurants in Dakar. The cuisine is amazing as well as atmosphere. It's always crowded! We truly enjoyed it. Of note, be aware about prices, which are quite high as for Dakar.

I studied abroad for two months in Dakar and this was one of my favorite places! I lived in the neighborhood and every weekend (and even weekdays) my classmates and I would go hang out, have a beer, and use the wifi. During the week New Africa offers dance classes (got to experience salsa and bachata night). I think it's... More

While in Dakar for 5 days, I had twice dinner in New Africa, a small restaurant. The owner is a friendly lady who tries to make you feel at home, also as a solo dinner-person. It’s located in a small road in a residential area, just off a main road. It also has a few apartments for rent. The menu... More

Just so nice and cozy, this mom and pops shop is a delight. Mix of so many influences from Africa, France and Caribbean islands. If you are lucky to be there on a salsa night you may just be hooked for a while. Nice set up for a night out with a bunch of friends to chat, laugh, drink and... More

The chef used to prepare the food to order. Then he got lazy and made batches and froze the food. And the microwave was set up to defreeze the plastic portions. What a shame. We don't go here anymore and most of our friends have abandoned this restaurant also.

RestaurantNewAfrica, Propriétaire at New Africa, responded to this review

We are very surprised about your criticism, because we don't used microwave at all, it's why sometimes the cooking take more time than in others restaurants. So, if you didn't appreciate the food, the reason is somewhere else. In spite of this your opinion is important. More
