We had a very tasty and fun experience yesterday at Yum Son. I’d been in twice prior but happily brought a new Nelson resident in to try the flare. Steph, our hostess/waitress was absolutely a pleasure and she really made the experience all that it...was. She offered suggestions, was happy to tell us what she liked, and seemed very proud to represent her place of employment. It is staff like this that make the difference in a town where there are many choices! We loved the Imperial rolls, calamari, and the salad rolls. The guest draft beer was great!More

Head to Yum Son, and gosh, you're in for a treat! The food is always phenomenal, the cocktails make you feel fancy, the service is great, and the atmosphere is top-notch. The servers know the menu, can make great recommendations, and are always helpful and...friendly and polite and you know, just - cool. Shoutout to Carli who somehow always just knows when I need a spring roll to go with my bone-broth caesar. Life-saving.More

Yum Son is actually one of my favorite places to eat in nelson so why not go in on a Friday afternoon?! They are not only offering a great happy hour deal but have the burger month burger as a special this weekend!!! My server...jani was amazing and had no problem twisting my rubber arm to order it. I ordered the Marlon Brando cocktail to go with it and man can Mindy shake a great cocktail! So perfectly balanced and delicious.

As a Vietnamese student who study abroad, it is inevitable for me to miss home sometimes. In such times, the food from Yum Son always bring the best comfort, especially the Pho, and more specifically the broth. I would not say it is the same...broth that I had back in Vietnam, but it is very similar, and more importantly, very very delicious. I also love the Sweet Soy Chicken Wings - perfect texture and flavor. Thank you, Yum Son, for being one of the best part of my life in Nelson! And I have learnt that a Vietnamese chef, Ms. Alice Nguyen, is contributing to the great service of the restaurant, so thanks you as well, chef Alice!More
