The atmosphere, service and quality of the food was not even close to the other restaurants in the chain in the city. Very disappointed.

My favorite Chinese meal is the Hong Kong beef with noodles. This restaurant uses the inch wide rice noodles, cooked to chewy al- dente texture. The sauce is light and flavorful. I liked it so much that I went back 2 days later!

After a late visit to the doctor, we went there for a quick bite & to try it out on the recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed. The staff, as well as the owner, were very friendly & the food was very good. Will definitely go back, or order for delivery.

Kim Son Cafe is in my neighborhood. I would go there to invite my friends who are new to Asian/Vietnamese dishes or whenever I am too lazy to drive down to Bellaire Boulevard. It's convenient and close to authentic. My favotite dish is Chicken Pho with dark meat and extra ginger on the side or the Vermicelli salad with BBQ... More

Food was great and quick delivery to table. Staff was professional and very organized. Lots of seating, wine bar, Tv. The view is open and light comes in from windows. Friends brought us here and we loved it.

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
