Nice interior, very elegant. We tried miso soup, which was very good and rice noodles with chicken and gamberi. Noodles were a bit overcooked for my taste and I missed more rich flavours of the dish. A la carte menu is for sure too pricey...More

Shambala is a beautiful restaurant with tasty food and a great atmosphere. Only thing that can be improved is the service. Lot's of time waiters are absent in the restaurant.

This restaurant is way overpriced for what it has to offer. The appetizers were ok, nothing special, but very expensive. The Pad Thai is the worst I ever had and it is definitely not worth the 15€, it was sour and mostly just noodles. The...More

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.
