Not what we were expecting to enjoy as our first meal in Venice but very glad we went in. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. Service was attentive without intruding. Food was very enjoyable - perhaps it's unfair to compare it with what's available in the UK. Overall well worth a visit.

Food good but close on 25 minutes before our first drinks and orders taken. No excuse as it was quiet but perhaps restaurant managing with only one member of staff. Owner when she appeared seemed content to have a long, lively chat with her friends next to our table. An expensive ok experience! Needs more competition.

We found this place by pure luck, coming from the North West we couldn't resist the lure of a good curry. We managed to get a table on the small outside balcony which is great, you can watch the gondolas go by whilst enjoying your meal. Service was slow (20 mins waiting for our initial drinks order) but the restaurant... More

The restaurant is located right by the water side, and can be reached ( ideally ) by a water taxi, directly from St Marks Square ( cost us 70 Euros ). The water taxi stops by the balcny dining area, with a step onto the dinign area, and our table was right there. The food, the ambience, the service...absolutely outstanding....

My visit to Ganesh ji restaurant on 19th june 2014 with my family was the worst ever experience of my life. Ms Patricia, a non Indian owner of this restaurant is very rude, impolite & a difficult lady. She literally SHOUTS at her clients.. She should realize-- Theres always a better way out.

Ms Patricia, owner of this Indian restaurant is too rude & making money by insulting Indian customers in her Indian restaurant. She should realize that just by lighting diya infront of Hindu Gods she does not became Indian. She's only fooling people & making money. She irks & irritates all the customers. Mr Pal & Mr Ladi true Indians only... More
