Very good food.

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

We were in Venice for two days. We visited Paris, Rome and came over to Venice. In between the pastas and pizzas we wanted to have Indian food and the only choice in Venice was Ganesh Ji. We ordered Dal Fry, basmati rice and plain nan. Food was good. I would recommend this place for a decent Indian food, don't... More

We visited them in June 2015. The hotel is a proper Indian Restaurent(not run by Bangladeshi etc). We tried a few vegetarian dishes (regular ones like Dal) and found them satisfactory to our taste. Mango lassi was very good. After reading some of the reviews from here we weren't sure about freshness aspect of food and hence asked the owner... More

Guess this is the only Indian restaurant in Venice. Delicious Indian food. We ordered a take away since our hotel was nearby (and also we didnt want to pay the cover charge of 5 euros for 2 people!). Malai Kofta was excellant. Price is a bit expensive but so is Venice! Small disappointment - they didnt provide any chutney along... More

Went to this restuarant to grab basic dal and white rice for our five year old daughter; ended up ordering more than that! Thoroughly enjoyed our two dinners at Ganesh Ji. The service was quick and welcoming. I would highly recommend this restuarant to families, especially the ones with young children.

This restaurant had the worst service. When I ordered a plate of "Basmati Rice" ordered, they never gave it. I had to ask 3 TIMES to receive only a plate of rice. Also, I asked for a certain dish. They charged for it STILL on the check when they never gave it to me. As an Indian myself, this wasn't... More

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.
