Having found this on here in search for halal food, we walked past at first as no obvious signage and windows painted in white but eventually realised this was orient experience. The place was extremely busy on a Sunday afternoon (today) we luckily found a little table, its small but very quirky and cool inside. Looked at a menu then... More

Great atmosphere and a restaurent that seemed to be enjoyed mostly by locals. Staff were welcoming and friendly and the service incredibly efficient. Good size portions with exquisite eastern flavours. Great value for money. One of the best meals we had in Venice!

When I was on a weekend break, I visited this restaurant, the food is excellent and value for money, friendly staff and excellent service, the place is a bit small with nice décor. They serve Indian, Afgani, Pakistani and Mediterranean dishes. To avoid disappointment go there early for a good evening meal, the place gets very busy in the evenings.

Two very nice UK folks took me there. Where to begin? The waiter-greeter was, what, clueless, addled, high? At any event, he made a cold fish look warm and hearty. Once again, sigh, the Indian "custom" of having all the dishes on a steam table - no such thing as freshly-cooked food. The food itself was, to be very kind,... More

different concept, good food, friendly service! the falafel is great, and the hummus too! generally good food and very nice and friendly environment. ordering can be confusing but since prices are quite good, that is no problem.

We wanted a break from Italian food and found this place..We walked into the restaurant and asked the waiter if we could look at a menu. He said yes and then disappeared.... he then reappeared serving customers, thinking he was just busy we waited... And waited. After 5 minutes of waiting I gave up and left. We then went to... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
