A true hidden gem in all of Sarasota County

We all hear of the big 4-star places. They all make the food magazines and newspapers. Sadly the little guys, the little places of passion and honesty of good food get ignored and run over. KT's is one of those forgotten, ignored places. They've been in the same, small, side of the road place for... read more

I say unique because it's so rare to find authentic Vietnamese cuisine, or "standards" of the big cities. Unlikely location as it really is the only *real* Vietnamese cooking in Venice. Even in NYC, there are not many excellent Vietnamese (or authentically and uniquely Vietnamese, as opposed to "Pan Asian" or "fusion", etc.) restaurants as there once were. That said....... More

Not the tastiest pho I've had, but since the next one is all the way in Sarasota it will have to do. Portion seems kind of small compared to other Vietnamese restaurants in Hawaii, California and Nevada.

My son an I found KT Vietnamese while at a soccer tournament near Venice. It has a dine in area that is nicely decorated and can probably seat about 50 guests. The food not only tastes great, but has an excellent presentation, as well. I had the Saigon Street Rice my son had one of the noodle dishes. We both... More

Loved it. Me and wife ate here for the first time. I don't have time to review every restaurant. But being rude and only being negative is stupid. this place deserves a great review. Nice people. Great food. Get the pho. It's off the charts

I was impressed with the decor and cleanliness. Also, for those who want coffee better than ANY coffee shop, order the Vietnamese coffee. This is great for you students that need to study for finals!!

Had dinner here. The owner waited on us and is very helpful if you have questions or just are not sure what to order. Prices are reasonable.

FYI- I looked at total of 3 reviews offered by the negative review. They are all negative- one star each- my guess is that this person only thinks negative. The owners of KT work really hard to please their customers and I think they work every day to make the experience at KT the best it could be. Give them... More

We stopped in for lunch one day and were very pleasantly surprised. The menu includes a variety of Vietnamese items as well as several more traditional dishes. I had an interesting sandwich which was quite tasty. We will be going back again.

Had an early lunch s soon as they opened. Had the pork chop with a fried egg and rice. The pork chop was both old and burnt. Food was poor at best - will not go back
