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

We don't go to Venice for Chinese food, BUT, we like variety and while we enjoy Venetian food we always make it a point to to eat here at least once on every trip. We're surprised by the negative reviews. We've been eating here since 1999 (perhaps 10 times over the years and we've introduced family and other couples to... More

After dining on pasta and pizzas, my wife was craving a vegetarian soup ... the Italian restaurants don't have soup for vegetarians, as the stock they use has beef or chicken. We came across Tian Jin and the lady said "I know vegetarian!" She did, indeed. Served up soup and fried rice just the way we liked it. And inexpensive,... 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.

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.
