Very good tasting food and excellent service. The last course we had was the best. It was pepper shrimp.... More

We had some friends in town that wanted some Vietnamese food so we took them to Kim Son. SInce we were downtown, it was very convenient. We all enjoyed our meal with noodles, fish, roasted duck, and of course the spring rolls. Great meal.

Couple of times I've been to Kim Son I have left full and well satisfied. The food is very very good. Wife is on the picky side and she had Zero complains here. Both enjoyed it and definitely well go back. If you are in downtown Houston make it a place to go.

Kim Son is one of my favorites in Houston. It is unique - with its stand alone beautiful building, good serving portions, large menu, great value and tasty food - you got to give it a try. You can see and hear from the crowd that there are many repeat customers. Their displays for their specials are usually outstanding. We... More

Had dinner at Kim Son after an afternoon baseball game. Have not been there in about a year. Signed up for season theater tickets, so will be more often in the next year. While they have taken one of my favorite dishes off of the menu, Seafood Pot, I ordered the Kim Son Special dinner. As expected, it was great.... More

The restaurant apparently now has multiple outlets, but some consistent dishes. We were shocked to lose Beef Three Ways, Asparagus and Crabmeat Soup, Peking Style Spareribs, and many other dishes, but... More

We were on our way to a baseball game and stopped for dinner. We were served quickly and the food was good. We have been going to this location for many years and always enjoy the food. Parking is easy and convenient. Also good for very big groups.
