  • In 1982, Kim Su Tran La, opened the second Kim Son in Houstons Old Chinatown downtown. The first Kim Son was in Vinh Long province at the tip of southern Vietnam.
  • Since 1982, after she fled her first restaurant in Vinh Long, Vietnam, Mama La has been sharing authentic Vietnamese food with Houstonians.
  • Do not order hot and sour soup. It's sweet rather than being, as the name suggests, sour.
  • best of asia
  • Great general Tso's lunch plate for only $7.99!!
  • I did not have a better General Tso's chicken than at this place: large, tender, juicy chunks of meat with delicious crust from outside. That's how this dish should be prepared!
  • The charbroiled Vietnamese fajitas are a fusion of both the old and new worlds, and the Vietnamese crepes, garlic butter fried shrimp and sugarcane shrimp are not to be missed.
  • Try the Har Gow
  • Try the Asian Escargot - In chili sauce.
  • Try the black peppered crabs!
  • get the Killer Special! bbq combo steak shrimp chicken on vermicelli. best bbq beef!
  • Great food, huge selection on the menu. One of the go to restaurants in Htown.
  • If you're looking for traditional Vietnamese dishes served in a lavish setting, this is the place you want. Choose from a wide variety of noodle dishes, and don't miss the pot stickers & spring rolls!
  • Traditional Vietnamese cuisine, served in an elegant yet comfortable atmosphere. The extensive menu has something for everyone!
  • Only smiling person is security
  • Garlic butter chicken wings are amazing but take 20 minutes to make.
  • This is where my love for the Asian Cuisine actually started.
  • Appetizers
  • Alas, Kim Son is not what it used to be many years ago. Now it became a mass producer of low quality Asian food for their not so discerning patrons.
