If you need a chicken soup fix for your cold or sore throat, Kim's is the place to go. Lots of good chicken and tofu chunks along with a good portion of noodles. Nice quiet setting, pleasant garden seating

Used to go to Kim's at least once a week. Haven't been there in awhile. Got a sandwich today. The tofu . Very disappointed . More hot peppers than tofu . The bread was not fresh like when they first opened . Tome to seek out another Vietnamese sandwich place

Kim's is a basic little place to pick up a Vietnamese sandwich or salad. Zilch atmosphere. It's not a place to sit down but fine for take out. They don't have true pho which I love. They sell chicken or beef Sate soup which I haven't tried. I usually order BBQ chicken sandwich.

Kinda expensive food for the quality. Fun free play area for kids. Toys are a little old and dirty.

The food is nothing special and you have to be VERY careful your toddler doesn't put pebbles in her mouth - very strange floor material, but if you're desperate for a place to bring your kid...
