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.

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. The terms "hospitality" & "customer service" are... More

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

We went to ganesh ji in 2008, and always remembered it fondly. Went again last week and came back slightly disappointed. The tandoori prawns were not cooked in the tandoor, but were actually deep fried, and had a coating of red color instead of tandoori masala. However they figured we didnt like it by seeing the dish untouched and they... More
