“Good food and pleasant atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

We got a table here without booking but it's a busy little spot and I'd recommend booking if you want to be sure of a table. Four of us ate here, we had 2 starters, 4 mains and 2 desserts. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked in all cases. The monkfish had a layer of spices covering it that was a bit too overpowering for a delicious fish but everything else was lovely. There is an emphasis on local foods and delicious flavours. Highly recommended!

“Fab!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011 via mobile

Everything we had was so tasty, I had the farmplate of vegetables and they were truly delicious followed by a striploin perfectly cooked. Service was excellent so friendly and helpful when deciding from the menu. I would definitely recommend this place.

“i wish kai opened years ago!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

Ive eaten in Kai many times now, mostly for their famous lunches and have experienced the evening service twice. On all accounts it has been the most inspired eating experience Ive had to date in Galway, and quite possibly ireland. The interior is really comfy, atmospheric and stylish, the staff are interested, interesting and very prompt. But its the food that draws me down to that side of town over and over again. A daily menu that screams fluency in her local produce, respect and balance in her ingredients and inspiration in its construction. And fairly sensitive to the pocket considering the quality of produce. Do yourself a favour , eat at Kai.

“food avarage, service was nice and friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

Service was nice. Food not as high as expected. Nothing special about it and not creative. We were disappointed after reading great reviews about it. We would not recommended to our friends if the would like go for a special Food night out.
