We had spotted this Chinese restaurant after strolling over the rialto Bridge and decided we would go there on our second night as my partner is a big fan of Chinese. We have eaten in Chinese restaurants all over and they always have a running theme. This restaurant however, was a little... read more

This little restaurant offers a really good range of Vegetarian options which included Tofu (much needed protein for a vegetarian in Italy!!!!). The food was delicious, the service was great. It was so good to find some vegetarian options which did not include bread and the prices where fantastico.

My husband and I came to Tian Jin on a recent trip to Venice. We LOVED it! As much as we love Italian food, it's hard to eat it 3 meals a day every day. We were craving Chinese spicy food, and we found Tian Jin in San Polo. It hit the spot! It was delicious and spicy, and they... More

After eating way too much Italian food we were tempted to try some Asian food ... The service was 10 out of 10 and the food was even better ! Would highly recommend this place !

I felt compelled to write this review as the vast majority really lay into this quaint little restaurant. Myself and a friend happened to be walking by and spoted it out of the corner of our eye its not very well advertised it was late about half 11 PM but we were still invited in warmly when I asked them...

I need to taste some Chinese food. This place is pretty good. Fast and no fuss. This is Italy, so don't expect some authentic chinese cuisine like in Hong Kong. But, you won't be disappointed.

The menu makes it look like a cheap place to eat, but do not be fooled. The portion is mind-bogglingly small, the food clearly not fresh and the chef does not know his or stuff, clearly.

Don't you ever get into the lady owner. She is the worst server ever. She is really rude. Just go another chinese restaurant. There are a lot better place than here, with good food, good price and good service!

My husband and I enjoyed the food as we were looking for chinese food in Venice. We read some bad reviews on trip advisor but still decided to give it a try. We ordered the hot and sour soup, tomatoes with egg, hot sauce pork and chicken fried rice. We enjoyed the food even though the portion is small.

The employees are very helpful and polite whereas the food is cheaper than in the rest of the town. They need a better PR cause it's easy to miss it.

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.
