Riverfront Times' Description
There's a lot to grab your attention at Kim Son Vietnamese Bistro - bright-painted walls, flat-screen TV sets, a menu with 170 choices - so focus on the tanks along the dining room's back wall. The crabs, lobsters and fish swimming there are the house speciality. Try cua rang me, a whole Dungeness crab in a sweet-tart tamarind sauce studded with fiery chiles; or one of four different lobster preparations. You'll also find the standard array of such popular Vietnamese dishes as pho, bun (various meats served over vermicelli) and spring rolls. More adventurous diners may want to try what the menu terms "Classic but Unique Dishes," among them quail, Cornish hen and frog legs.
Tips from foursquare
The Thai style fried shrimp is so good! Order the combo plate with pork chop and sunny side up egg too!
They have that 9.99 lobster dish special again...
Delicious food, Lizhen is a knowledgable server
Get the clay pot spare ribs!! Best dish on the menu!!
Fantastic spring rolls and the Lotus Delight salad is great, too.
