On a recent visit to Cavan, we found it hard to locate restaurants (especially on a Sunday evening) but were lucky to find the Kam Wok Asian Restaurant in Cavan town.

The restaurant is located up the stairs and we were welcomed at the door by staff. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, with nice Chinese touches here and there. I always like it when an ethnic restaurant places a lot of emphasis on decoration and music which is from that country. Nothing I hate more than going to a Chinese restaurant and hearing Westlife playing – I mush prefer to hear Chinese music playing as it lends itself to the ambiance. So for any other ethnic restaurants reading this, your customers want the full experience – not just the food, but the decor the music and the setting.

The Food at Kam Wok Asian

Starters: The starters here are large and very nicely presented and I could easily have had a second round of starters, it was so tasty. (I chose crispy won ton)

Mains: I chose a seafood selection. The course came sizzling in a pot, which I like, and was in a Chinese wine sauce. Amazing flavor and the seafood was plentiful and varied.

The Service

Apart from the free Prawn Crackers which is always a nice touch – The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful if they tried. Not simply, “How was your meal” but we actually had nice conversations with the staff between courses.


Cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. I like my Chinese food and this was top-notch.
I doubt I will be in Cavan in the near future, but if I am, I will be returning.
