We were here during our August break. Why we went there? We wanted a break from the overdose of Pasta and Pizza. We longed for Indian food. Getting there was not easy as we walked and walked and walked from San Marco area.But it was nice as we explored a lot of silent corners and piazzas of venice. Location was... More

We are Asian and asked for hot spiced food. What arrived was straight out of the Patak's bottle and distinctly NOT spiced in any way, Asian or otherwise - in fact their solution was to hand us a bottle of "spicy" ketchup; do me a favour. The samosa resembled an English pie, with "rustic" pastry that was inappropriate and overcooked.... More

You don't have any option in Venice other than this, so even after reading bad reviews, we went there to try our luck. We ordered dal with nan, and veg biryani with raita. Some onion salad. Now, dal was good. Biruani pathetic. It is costly restaurant. And to top up, you would required to pay additional tax pr coperto at... More

Provides very good Indian Food, especially for Indian Vegetarians like me. Service is very good and you can find honest people. Menu may seem pricey but it is at par with all the other restaurants or may be cheaper than most in Venice.

My wife & I arrived at Ganesh Ji at 20:00 on Weds 26th need some spice in a meal. We had not booked and the restaurant was empty - people do not like 2 service charges. There is a €2.50 cover charge per person, plus a €7 Coperto added service charge which has lost them 2*s off my review. We... More

We looked out for this place beforehand and felt blissful to find Indian food in this Italian city (being Vegan).

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.
