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

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 is the first 1 star review Ive ever written. The food was very salty which im sure was to cover that food had gone bad. The portions were small and the meat was all wrapped in way too much starch. I woudnt recommend anyone to go here, my belly is tough, but im certain that it will be a... 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 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.

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.
