Funmi's Cafe is hidden in the middle of the shopping center, have to look for it. A small place, basic tables and chairs and at first glance looks a bit seedy - a perfect set up for the outstanding meal we were to receive. I...More

Food not really very good. A disappointment. Portions small. Not a good value. Service is very friendly. Have not returned and probably will not.

Our group of four visited for lunch and ordered four different dishes, all of which were delicious--the chicken skewers, veggie rice, spicy chicken salad, and beans and plantains. They were all delightfully spiced without being overwhelming or too hot; and the amounts were generous. I...More

I ate here with a group of family and friends. Their food is always very tasty, though one friend said it had been Americanized. A couple of us got the fish dish (don't remember the name, but it had tilapia in it) in different versions...More

I LOVE THE FOOD HERE. I've been to this place multiple times and I'm never disappointed by the food. If you've never had Nigerian food before, I recommend you start with the peri-peri chicken. The veggie goat stew is also delicious. But if you're in...More
