Eating lunch in Shambala is a pure joy. We were sitting outside, it is like eating in a park. The food is great, big selection of wines and for desert mango ice cream it is a must!

Excellent Asian food in a beautiful shady garden. Surprisingly good white house wine. I ate a "choice of appetizers", Shrimps in Singapore sauce and Chocolate souffle. It was all very good!

I used to love this place. They started well but in last two years I noticed they become misers with okra and expensier vegetables. It looks like they are not doing well and they started to use more cheap components like broccoly and carrots and...More

I liked the restaurant in a quiet part of city center. The food was good, personnel attentive and polite, very professional. I had vegies with tofu. The portion was not very big but taste was good.

Behind a humble, discreet entrance at Križevniška street next to the Križanke theatre, Shambala is a place of harmony. The interior merges the old thick-walled Ljubljana house with a stylish modern interior design, which shows some eastern mystique. The food follows this composition in reverse: It’s essentially Asian, incorporating modern trends and a glimpse of what we are traditionally used to. In short - it’s the eastern promises fulfilled.
