David Murphy
Kai Restaurant

Carlow born front of house extraordinaire David Murphy has graced the floors of Kai Restaurant in Galway from the very beginning. David, ex-welder fabricator, joined forces together with his wife, Chef Jess Murphy, to create Kai as we know it today. Individually, David has gone on to win two national awards for Best Customer Service in Ireland from The Irish Restaurant Association and Ireland’s Food and Wine awards. David, like Jess, searches for local when in comes to drinks, including herbal teas being made on Sea Road to the highly sustainable cloud picker coffee. This has helped with Kai retaining their Michelin Green star and Bib Gourmand. David is also an avid Connacht Rugby fan.
