I have been to Ken's many times and the food is amazing! I would highly recommend their vegetable satay. The restaurant itself isn't fancy, but the lovely food makes up for that! Would recommend to anyone wanting a great Chinese! The best Chinese in Athlone!

We had dinner here. The place was quiet but there was very few staff on to serve customers. We waited 50 for a starter. Then another 35 min for the main. The Coke was from a large bottle and still charged enough for it. The receipt was dodgy and questionable. Avoid avoid avoid!
