We were so much excited to find this Indian restaurant in Venice after surviving for 2 days on Piza & Pasta. Our excitement flew out of window as soon as we were treated as second world citizen. Also the food was not upto mark. We have visited many European cities and all of them had so good Indian food, but... More

Not a very fancy appearing restaurant, but food quality easily outpaces the location and ambience of the restaurant. Also, staff is friendly, and accommodative, and hospitable. Would recommend it.

In spite of being the only Indian restaurant in the area near St Lucia station, the restaurant lived up to our expectations. The staff was prompt and helpful. The food quality was very good. Do try the salted lassi. It even has a balcony where you can have your food close to the water with Gondolas passing buy. Price are... More

Well if you want to taste the indian food in Venice around santa lucia/San Marco, I believe this is the only option available (or atlease this is the only one I found in tripadvisor). Being an ardent fan of indian food, I search for indian restaurants irrespective of where I travel. In venice, as this is the only option, we... More

The restaurant doesn't look too fancy, but the food is definitely worth it. Excellent curries and good family atmosphere.

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.
