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 have been to this place few times and noticed that last year the quality of food and choices were a little bit better. In all honesty, I wouldn't call it Asian cuisine, more like European cuisine with Asian touches. Quite huge portions, from which...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.
