Some of America’s most delicious success stories come from Vietnam.

The story behind Houston-based Kim Son restaurants is epic enough to fit an Oscar winning picture. Mama La, the owner of Kim Son restaurants, left Vietnam in 1980 for Houston with her husband and kids. Blessed with a near-perfect memory and a talent for deliciousness, she committed 250 recipes to memory and opened her first Kim Son restaurant. Since that moment, Kim Son has been voted the “Best Vietnamese Restaurant” year after year by Houston foodies.

Kim Son has evolved from one of Houston’s best restaurants to America’s premiere Vietnamese restaurant group. The chain now encompasses three banquet facilities, four full-service restaurants, and four food-court outlets.

The products, despite their high-end and exquisite nature, are incredibly convenient to obtain. You can submit booking requests for banquets over the phone, in-person, or via email. Their ballrooms are taken right out of fairy tales. They range in spaciousness and decor – with the Bellaire Ballroom boasting a a room capacity of 800.

What makes the service even more special is that it is one of the only companies to offer five-star ambiance while serving Vietnamese cuisine. Even better, you can choose between buffet style, hors d’oeuvre, or a sit-down family style dinner.
