This is a great place for vegans and non-vegetarians. The staff is always lovely. The food is delicious and there is an entire vegan menu if you ask. They often have specials for vegans too. I cant' recommend this place highly enough.

This is a great food destination but not a great atmosphere. If you are looking for something with charm in the interior this is not for you. If you are looking for good food, you really can't do better. Please order the asaro (instead of rice) for me. Delicious! (The rice is good too, but where else are you going to get asaro?!)

Pros: Great food, Full menu for vegans, Amazingly friendly staff
Cons: Atmosphere is missing, Location

Funmi's is a great little find in the Gardiner Lane shopping center. I visited recently with a Groupon and was able to get a delicious red cabbage salad and a vegan entree for just $15! I got it as a take-out meal and the owner was very friendly, getting my meal prepared fresh and in a timely fashion.

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!

Pros: delicious food, vegan options, friendly staff
Cons: you'll wait a bit if it's a busy night

Updated vegan menu, a bit pricey

Finally got to check out Funmi's! Their vegan menu is pretty rad, though they listed 'ice cream' and weren't sure they actually had vegan ice cream. I told them to check out So Delicious, etc. The other dishes were incredible, mostly rice and bean based, or tofu, with savory Nigerian flavors in a tomato base. Really good stuff! They have yeast donuts that are vegan as well.

The portions are smaller than what you would expect for the price, and while we used a Groupon-like deal, paying full price would be pretty serious at this place (think $40+ for two people). Still, great to have another vegan option on Bardstown Rd, and very cool that they decided to update their menu based on requests and location.

Pros: vegan options, vegan donuts, very tasty
Cons: pricey
