Three of us had dinner there. The service was exceptional and some of these dishes prepared fresh so you have to wait 10-15 minutes for them to arrive at your table. This is true of the steamed dumplings and of course the sushi. Both were very good. My companions had the Hunan chicken and said it was good as well.... More

I eat a lot of sushi and this place is very average. I ordered the nigiri salmon and edamame. The salmon was pretty tough to chew. However, we had a very nice waiter and over all my family and I had a good time. I don't think we will return, though.

Eating inside is never fun as they get the mall/hospital crowd. BUT this place delivers. and FAST. Really Fast. When I call in, the food is at my door within 30 minutes, sometimes sooner. If you are staying around the mall and you don't want to go out, this is the place.

I have to admit it; I ALWAYS order the vermicelli bowl. It is so good, I can't even try anything else. I usually order it with the grilled chicken, but sometimes with the shrimp. It is like a salad with the noodles. Definitely use the num noc sauce (light vinaigrette-like dressing). My husband orders something different every time and he... More

I have travelled extensively, including to China, Korea, Vietnam and Japan. I also lived in Japan for six years., This place is phenomenal and has the best Singapore Noodles I've ever had outside of Japan.

We stopped here for dinner and was pleased with the hostess and waitstaff. Food was very good. Well prepared, and tasty. I had fried rice with beef and shrimp. Liked the layout of the restaurant, decor, and ability to talk with my colleagues despite the restaurant being crowded.

I see people in the building where i work coming back from Kim Son all the time and they always say how great it is. So, I grabbed food to go last week. Bbq pork with snow peas and wonton soup. The bbq was bland, not very flavorful and the slices of pork were fatty, which while often the case,... More

We had planned to go next door, but a smiling person opened the door and welcomed us in. It went uphill from there. The soup bowl is HUGE and delicious. The shrimp spring rolls with peanut sauce quite large and fresh. Three of us split 2 entrees and had plenty left for another full meal for 3. We loved that... More

Attentive Ordered the miso soup, it tasted like soup packets from a grocery store. Had one of the sushi lunch specials, kimchee roll, could not taste the kimchee... But ok.. Had the Spring rolls,...

While I immensely enjoyed eating here the first tme around, in a leisurely manner and with good company, I was extremely impressed again my second time when I stopped by today for take-out. Fast, friendly service was welcomed, and the food was better than any take out I've had in Houston. Ever. Fresh ingredients, ample portions...my son is ready to... More
