This is supposedly one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Houston. If so, the others must be terrible. I ordered Hunan Beef and asked for it to be extra hot but I could not taste any pepper or "heat". The beef tasted like it had been boiled rather than stir-fried. My wife's Orange Chicken was in large pieces that had... More

Food was good here and plenty of choices to choose from. Come here if you want some comfort food and you won't go wrong. However, do note their portion is very big so be careful not to over order! Service was great and attentive too!

We had a good meal here. Not the best Asian food but more than acceptable. The restaurant is very large and the menu reasonably extensive

Very nice atmosphere & decor. Appreciated sample dishes for customers to see before you're seated. We went for lunch and were promptly seated and taken care of. Food was served very quickly. Our food was fresh, tasted delicious, very flavorful, very good portion sizes for lunch. We were asked to complete a survey regarding our meal & experience and were... More

Incredible atmosphere and service, followed by the most incredible food. And get this - I don't usually dig Asian food, so for me to rave like this - IT'S REALLY GOOD!!! The Kim Son Sampler platter was out of this world (4.5), the steamed dumplings and egg rolls being our favorite, but even the spring rolls pretty darned good too.... More

I really liked seeing all of the lunch combos on display as I entered the building. Nice colorful plates and I made my choice right away. I chose a Mama La's combo with shrimp, chicken and seared beef over rice with steamed veggies. Very tasty, make sure you try the "hot oil". Lots of great dishes to try and low... More

I've been here a few times and the food is always good and fresh. Fair price for what is offered. Simple straightforward menu however there is MSG in some of the offerings. Great spot to stop if you are coming from Clear Lake area on the way downtown on I45. Take Scott Street exit and restaurant is 2 blocks up... More

I visited a wedding where they had nine wonderful courses. All of the food was absolutely delicious. The fried rice was really good and nicely seasoned. I enjoyed the Peking duck tacos and the shrimp.
