Kim Son was my introduction to Vietnamese food. Still my favorite. Huge menu and the most consistent quality I have ever experienced. Cheerful and friendly service.

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.

We have gone to this restaurant as long as I remember. It used to be a much smaller restaurant across the street in the late 80's. Since then the food quality has not gone down. If I live closer to Kim Son on Jefferson Street,...More
