This place has mixed reviews to say the least. For me the only Indian in Venice is irresistible and I would have gone regardless of the reviews although I was fearing the worst. In all honesty I can see where some of the negativity comes from however I experienced none of the problems mentioned by others, many of which seem... More

The ambiance was so bad we should've turned around but we were looking for something other than pasta so we decided to give it a go. Being Indian we know the difference between matar paneer and mix sabji and malai kofta and daal, those aren't the same. They did not let us know that they didn't have what we ordered... More

May not help locals as most of them don't speak English, with all due respect. Visitors / tourist, stay away from this place as far as you can. Bunch of scam artists work here. I arrived here in the afternoon with a toddler and we agreed to order, an appetizer - Vegetable Pakoras, 2 entres - Mattar-Paneer and Malaai-Kofta, 2... More

The only Indian Restaurant in Venice that is run by an Italian with Hindi speaking staff. Food is just okey if compared to the north india stuff you get in India but if you are bored having burgers, Pizzas, Penini, Pastas this is a place to be. Ambiance is good.

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

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.
