This is by far the best Japanese dining experience I've had in my entire life! We booked a private dinner at our home for 8 and we had the time of our lives!! He brings EVERYTHING, so you don't have to worry about cooking equipment and dirty dishes afterwards. You can pick a price bracket to suit your pocket. We opted for R350 per head and got way more than what we bargained for. If you want to impress your friends or just have a fun time along with some fantastic Japanese cuisine, look no further than Funiki.

We have known Sensei for many years now. Recently we had him and his assistant preparing a zushi buffet for 40 guests to celebrate an engagement.
Every part of it was prepared with attention and love. Deon also shared, at my request, some of his valuable insights on life. A truly unique experience which could not be better

We had the pleasure of Sensei coming to our home to cook traditional Japanese home style food for us and what an amazing experience this was for all of us. Not only does he cook with passion beauty and care but he teaches and inspires at the same time. It was a delicious meal and we will be recommending him to all our friends.

This is an amazing place! Never seen anyone who likes his "work" as this chef! And not only does he like cooking, he's also very good at it! This man has passion for food and people, so you're sure to enjoy his kitchen! You cannot come to Franschhoek and not eat at Funiki's! For reservations, call his cell because his landline isn't working :-)

Need I say more? Amazing.
I have been to Japan and thought Japanese food and especially sushi was never going to get any better, until I went to Funiki. A-MA-ZING.
Loved it!
Wish they could open up closer to Cape Town, but it's definitely worth the trip to scenic Franschhoek!
