We were back to Fumi's Café for the second time and brought a friend. Don't be fooled by the simple, cafeteria look to the small establishment. There are surprises on the menu that will tantalize your taste buds and tickle your palette. How often do you get to sample food from Nigeria or Tanzania?? Try the Tanzanian Stew, the Peri-Peri Chicken or the Chicken Peanut Stew or anything else for that matter. And yes we'll be heading back there soon. Be sure to poke your head into the kitchen and thank Funmi herself for a job well done!!!

My whole family loves Funmi's! They're one of the best restaurants in Louisville for vegans. There are vegan options for starters, salads, soup, main meals, and desserts. That's really exciting because so many restaurants only have one or two things vegans can choose from. The food is always DELICIOUS to the point that I sometimes dream about it. I love her plantains in anything. I like the way she cooks her rice because it's so plump and has a great texture. Her cooking is so good that I crave things from Funmi's that I don't even normally like. The puff puffs dessert is like funnel cakes, doughnuts, and yeast rolls came together for a magical taste party. The service is good and Funmi and Yomi are so nice that you immediately feel like they're your friends. If you haven't been yet, you should go tonight!

Excellent experience. The environment is quaint. The service was extremely personable. I want to go back again just to try more of their menu. Rather than choosing from the menu, I just asked the waiter what I should have. It was great! I love unique places. This definitely fits the bill. Skip the chain restaurant and try something new!

The Lentil Sambosas were excellent but came with an unnecessary sauce, the moin-moin was similar to a savory porridge consistency flan in a tasty berber sauce, the ewa ati dodo was plantains over beans as described and the highlite of the meal (particularly for the price and size), and could easily be considered a meal size item on it's own. The Egusi Mushroom with Fufu Eba was Spicy and Filling but would probably have been better with beef or goat. The Fufu was not Mashed quite so well as I have come to expect from Ghanaan Cuisine but Only distracts on style points. Overall for $35 including tip there was Enough food for 3-4 plate servings.

Good food. Friendly service. I found the Nigerian menu to be very unique (at least, for me) and I thought the three dishes I sampled from tasted great. I can't wait to go back. The fried plantains that come with most dishes add just the right amount of sweetness to compliment the meal. Service was friendly. The place is a hidden gem... literally. It's on the side of the Gardiner Lane Shopping Center in a part of the strip that is tucked away and hard to notice that it even exists. A few cautions (but not a terribly big deal): The ambiance and design of the dining area felt a bit like waiting in a doctors office. It didn't feel like a cafe or dive. In regard to nearly all the dishes coming in "mild, medium, or hot," I have to agree with another reviewer in that it tasted more like "mild, mild, or mild." It tasted great, but if calls for some extra heat, it is a bit lacking. Check our there menu online. If you like what you see, don't hesitate to visited.

Food is really good, very tasty and well prepared. They can also prepare the food to your desired spice level. It is small and VERY SLOW. Do not go here expecting to be in and out in an hour, but the food is fresh and delicious.
