This is the second restaurant that I have visited in Waterville that I have been pleasantly surprised by. The interior is kind of outdated but quaintly so. There is a medium size dining room plenty of space lots of tables and some booths. I read that the owners are friendly and that truly is the case. I like frequenting restaurants... More

Once the only Chinese restaurant in town there is now competition. There are never any cars in the parking lot and fast food Chinese food is better.

They do most of their business as take out. The few times we have been there we were either the only ones in the place or one of two tables. Doesn't mean their food isn't good because it is great. The phone rings a lot with take out orders. Typical Chinese fare. Pleasant owners. Great option for this small town.

I greatly enjoyed myself here! The owners were incredibly welcoming and served us very quickly. Phenomenal Chinese food here! The place is a bit shabby, but it's also spotless. Though the prices aren't outstanding, they are fair and you get what you pay for.

My wife and I took our son to Kam Wah for the first time. We were sceptical at first, but the restaurant was very clean. The hosts, Henry and Pearl were great to talk with. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend it.

Good people and food was great. Made you so comfortable from the start till the meal was done.The owner had been in town quite a long time to run their business . All they needed have to remodeling and change new items of the menu.

We were there on Chinese New Year, I had the Szechuan Chicken combo which includes soup (I had egg drop), a spring roll, fried rice, and fortune cookie. Since I like to go with the theme I used chopsticks. It was very tasty. Others in my group had other dishes and they all seemed satisfied. The owners are very amiable... More

Kam Wah Restaurant is a Cantonese-style Chinese restaurant that has been family-owned and operated by a native Hong Kong husband and wife duo since 1992.

Join us for a delicious lunch of classic favorites like General's Tso's Chicken and Moo Goo Gai Pan, or enjoy an authentic dinner of Cantonese Chow Mein. Almond Boneless Chicken and many more meals are also available for quick carry-out service to savor at home.

We look forward to serving you as part of our family at Waterville's original Chinese restaurant!
