Typical Chinese restaurant found oversea

Been there on a cold night. There were not many customers. It was around the time for their waiters to have dinner as well. Nonetheless, our food was brought to us quickly. The amount of food was quite small compared to its price. The taste was not the best, but still close to authentic Chinese... read more

Miniscule portion sizes. Reading the menu alone might lead you to think that it might be good value, but it is not. You'd have to order 3 dishes each for a regular sized meal, and the food is average at best. Then there is also a 2 EURO COVER CHARGE PER PERSON. And they won't even serve you a glass... More

I usually only eat the local style food when I'm travelling, and wouldn't normally include Chinese food in Venice. That changed only when I lived here, after a long time, and several recommendations from colleagues. At that point Tian Jin became one of my firm favourites, and I ate here often, and regularly, usually alone, although I have taken others... More

Having spent considerable money on cover charge and service charge in Venice we tried to find a cheaper option. Being vegetarian we were fed up of eating similar Pizzas and Pastas. Tiajin provided good vegetarian options at an affordable price. Staff was friendlier than most of the other places and the food tasted good too.

This is the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. For a half small bowl of rice, they charge two euros. The service is rude and the food tastes very salty. The quantity is one third of normal serving for the price. The don't list mandatory service fee in the outside menu.

I grew tired of the poor pizza in Venice and went looking for something else. TA had this on the list so off we went. Our picture shows one of our orders. Looks good, right? It was eatable. The fried rice we ordered with it was not. Is fried rice supposed to be watery? Others say the food is terrible.... More

This restaurant is disgusting. It's really the most terrible restaurant I've ever had in my entire life. When I saw the menu and price, I thought it could be same as other chinese restaurants. But when they send foods to the table, I was shocked. It was only one bite for each dish. 3 one bite's dishes and one bite... 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.
