I was visiting from Houston on a mini vacation, the food was good, the only thing was the cashier seemed to have an attitude but I would eat there again

Okay, so as someone who lived on the Westbank for most of my life, I have driven past this place probably a thousand times. Easily. I always thought it looked kind of sketchy, and as much as I loved Chinese/Vietnamese food, this was probably one of the few "big" places in the area that I had yet to try. A... More

Went to this restaurant with family. We do not have enough words to describe the ginger onion and pepper crabs. They were simply the BEST crabs we have ever tasted. We highly recommend! Kathy Gabe from NY

Kim son has a great mix of Chinese and Vietnamese foods. Great for a crowd with different likes. Their food is always hot and you can't beat their lunch specials. Can get a little pricey at night but it's totally worth it.

this is a no frills Viet Namese restaurant that is very clean with great waitresses who will help you order and generally not let you over order. We generally eat family style at this place.

Fast service, good prices, great flavor. My wife and I ate at this restaurant for lunch three times during a one week period in April 2016.

There are many reasons not to go to Kim Son, particularly if you're a tourist. Getting there requires a commute across the river from New Orleans and even then, the place is a little hard to find; it's shabby; it closes ridiculously early (8:30); service is rarely friendly (but almost always efficient); the wine is awful.

This is a very good Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant with many authentic options on the menu. The whole steamed fish was excellent. And all the dinners we chose were very good. Not a fancy place but the service and food was very good. The staff is very nice. Don't be put off by the "gentleman's club" next door.

Always good food and attentive service. Lunches are large and well presented. Even tale-out is well packaged and large servings.
