Though I've never had a bad meal at Kim Son, I often return to my favorite entrees - and Hunan crispy shrimp is one of them. Delicious fried shrimp and a slightly spicy and sweet sauce, served with rice.

Huge restaurant, plenty of parking, however food is not as authentic as at other Vietnamese or Chinese restaurants. Quality has declined the past few years.

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.
