Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Just had my best meal of the year so far, in Funké, Sligo. Spicy Jollof, succulent and flavourful jerk chicken, delicious fried plantain and a great pineapple salsa. Whatever she puts in that sauce is magical. Happiest food I’ve had in months.

Having returned recently gotten married and on our honeymoon we were in need of some African food. This is definitely the place to go. African food is beautifully spiced which we love. The mains are huge as we had the jollof rice, plantains, beef with...turkey and Moi-moi with tasted like pure heaven just delish and beautifully presented. Came back and ordered the Catfish pepper soup could not fault the food and all washed down with African drinks. This place is a gem in the middle of the shopping center plus the staff are 💯 percent professional. This restaurant can’t go wrong.More

This is a type of food that is so difficult to find in Ireland, so I really didn't have anything to compare it with. But it was certainly a unique experience, all of us tasted something we have never had before, and it all tasted...good. Plus a very friendly waitress. It's not a huge menu but I'd definitely like to go back and taste more, it was tasty and fascinatingMore
