Delicious Garlic Nans

We visited Ganeshiji on our first day in Venice, by the popular comments and ratings. It felt like home.Awesome food in the shudh desi style. Do try the garlic nans, really tasty.

Read the reviews and as English living in France we don't have a lot of opportunity to eat a curry, thought we would give it a go. It was OK. The food was very salty and the curries quite 'samey' but it was fine. The cover charge is written on the menu but free cover charge if you have the... More

On our 4 days visit to Venice, tried Ganesh Ji one day. Food is fine and location is not far from Santa Lucia station. But per person, a cover charge of 2.5 euro is charged. This is not told or written anywhere. Even the Italian restaurants are not charging this amount. So beware of this extra cost. It suddenly appears... More

Nice Indian food available at the centre of Venice, from Piazzale Roma, it is 8 mins walk. We get all Roti, naan, fulka, all veg and non veg gravy, along with biriyani. The bearer speaks Hindi. The hotel is located next to the canel which can also be accessed by boat taxi.

Was very glad to find this restaurant in Venice, took some time to locate it but worth the search. Very good food in the romantic city. Food was a "Desi dhamaal in the foreign soil" :-)

We were in Italy on a 8 day trip travelling across Rome, Pisa and Venice. Venice was our last stop and by the time we reached there we were sick of having Pizza and Pasta. While buying souvenirs for family from a Bangladeshi shop-owner we came to know about this restaurant situated on a quiet street in Venice. The food... More

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.

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
