The order was not to my satisfaction. After a half hour wait where other tables were served before ours. They charged me $2 to fix it. I said okay but it's the last time I'll be dining here.

Kim Son is probably the most well known Asian food restaurant in Houston. Growing up, we only went to weddings catered by Kim Son. All these years later and it's still a favorite. We love coming here for weddings, special events and casual dinners. Casual dining is downstairs and there's a lot to choose from menu-wise. Our favorite is their... More

We had chicken pho which was so flavorful I ate the entire bowl. My husband had the triple delight which is chicken, shrimp & steak to make your own spring rolls, and chicken lo mein. Everything was delicious. Definitely recommended.

During the week I spent in Houston, I had already eaten great Mexican and Cajun food, and seafood and barbecue. So what now? I asked for a recommendation at the hotel front desk, and they said to try Kim Son, a Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant. Good advice. We walked from our hotel near the convention center. Nice walk but it got a... More

Food average. Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine.Service excellent. Large open dining room made it hard for me to hear the people on the other side of our table, Nice central location and reasonable prices make it a good place to go before an event in downtown Houston,

Love this restaurant. The spices wake up the senses in your mouth with spice explosions that are delicately balanced. Each bite has subtle layers of flavor. I like the chicken and beef dishes.

I love this restaurant. It's the first place I go to when I have business in Houston. The food is excellent, the service is excellent and they stay open late. Big menu with lots of choices.

Stopped in after Super she Bowl LI Opening Night and as usual food is spectacular! With such an extensive menu you can't go wrong finding an old favorite, but I recommend stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something new! We find a new favorite every time! Our waiter Justin is also SUPER friendly!
