There's two things for Jess when it comes to food - it has to taste great and visually, it has to be amazing.” I don't mind if it's not 100 per cent as long as the taste and the flavours are there. But you get that by buying quality. What we get is the Rolls Royce of ingredients.”
The performance in the kitchen and on the floor promises are a memorable dining experience to every customer young and old.

“I've wanted to be a chef since I was 9. I knew all my life what I wanted to be. I love everything about food, anything to do with making food. I think it's really important”.

Sommelier: Dave Murphy
Kai’ is the Maori word for food and in 2011 they opened the door with a simple formula — high-quality produce, preferably organic or wild, sourced locally and cooked intelligently.
From Monday to Saturday from 9:30am, freshly brewed coffee and their in house bakes make each morning in Galway better. With the stove fired up in the colder months, Kai Restaurant is a place that people go to read the paper, have a warm scone or croissant and have a morning meeting with a friend or neighbour. There is no wifi in Kai, it’s not a place where you want to be on your phone, unless taking pictures of the beautiful interior or the food that is bring served.
