Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice food. Mostly Indian but not spicy. Delicious spinach lasagne and salad bar also available. Friendly staff who explained the system - take a plate, add the food you want, weigh at the checkout. Pay for the weight of food only, not the plate....A light plate cost me around €7, my daughter's just over €10. Bowl of salad about €4 Water is free, other drinks €2.50 NOTE: we had trouble finding it - it is down some steps so below the street level and other cafes (though it still has sunny outside seating) Overall, great, would recommendMore

Delicious vegan food of top quality and great variety. The atmosphere was pleasant and peaceful. The staff was amazing, very friendly and helpful. They did their best to explain and advise us about the dishes. This is a very neat cafeteria-style self-service vegan restaurant with...plenty of gluten-free options. They charge according to the weight of the selected dishes, and the prices are quite reasonable. I will definitely have to stop by there every time I come to Ljubljana because everything is so delicious that I have to try all their dishes! Watch out for the pancakes: you won't be able to resist stopping at just one! 😄More

Good value for veggie food. It's a serve-yourself buffet and pay by weight. It reminds me of the Govinda restaurants I found all over England, Australia and NZ. Are they connected? Are they Hari Krishna?

We loved Mandala and ate lunch here twice on a 4-day trip to Ljubljana. 8-10 euros buys you a heaping plate of delicious vegan food in a clean, modern space. The owner is incredibly sweet and helpful. After days of sausage, cheese, and bread we...were happy to have fresh vegetables and diverse flavors.More

We had a difficult time finding this place down a stairwell in a fun part of Ljubljana but once we did we had a pretty good experience. The food is nothing to write home about but it was nice to have a meal with all...kinds of vegan options out here. The prices were a bit higher than we had expected, based off the style of restaurant but overall the food was pretty good.More

It was an absolute pleasurable experience eating at Mandala, so clean, everything is fresh, staff are super friendly and invitingly welcoming. The set up of the restaurant is neat, tidy and comfortable. Food is tidily laid out and the amount of options you have is...incredible. You are spoilt for choice here and not only that, you are learning newer and newer dishes and varieties of foods you thought you already knew, but in an interestingly nutritious way. Mandala is superb without a doubt. The experience is what makes it, not like other restaurants with just good food. Here is good food, good atmosphere and ultimately satisfied people.More

I'd already gotten the idea oh their good, tasty food at Radha Govinda's (LJ-Šiška) but I went for the first time to MANDALA (which is in the center of the city) with my boyfriend. We fist got a very warm welcome from the waitress which...also explained to us their SELFSERVICE system (you pay based on how much food (in grams) you put on the plate). The place where they serve food was SUPER CLEAN and we could see some cooks preparing food. The price was very good especially considering the quality and quantity of it!!! A verry good choice for everyone who wants to eat tasty and healthy vegan food in a realaxing ambience. EVEN MEATEATERS LOVE IT (including my BF)More
