Though it can be fun for a while, the overly simplistic gameplay makes this arcade game redundant very quickly. In Funky Restaurant, you use your finger to decide at what angle, and with how much force, you're going to toss food so that it lands onto trays your waitstaff are holding. Adding a bit of challenge: Some of these trays are larger than others, which can sometimes mean large gaps between trays, demanding accuracy of your tosses. At other times, you get bonuses for landing the food in certain spots.

The problem is that after you've played this for a bit -- say, about as long as it would take you to eat that burger you just tossed on-screen -- it becomes easy to figure out how to get the food to go where you want. Doubly so since, unlike in real life, salads and hamburgers in this game fly the same way (they also stay on their respective plates, so maybe realism isn't this game's strong suit). Regardless, because this doesn't have much variety, save for the size of the trays, this gets rather boring after a while. Which is why Funky Restaurant will entertain you, but only as long as it takes your waiter to bring you a burger and side salad.
