After reading all the good reviews about the 'fusion restaurant', I was prepared to pay for any overpriced dish on the menu. Upon arrival I was utterly disappointed with the service as well as the food. Two groups of people who arrived about 10 -15...More

Was a walk-in on the weekend and came to a practically full restaurant. I was found a seat but informed that the kitchen is backed up and would be at least a 45 minute wait for food. I had time and really wanted to try...More

This was my 15+ time at Shambala, but first time solo. Must say that, the restaurant never disappointed. The food is nicely prepared, presented and savory. The menu changes and if you come here as I do every few months, you can try new things....More

A really cozy restaurant with the limited, but excellent, choice of food, focusing on Thai, Vietnamese ... Great ambient and atmosphere.

Nothing special, less that I was expecting. Pad Thai was even not good (overcooked, tasteless). Tasteless Vietnamese roles. They are serving really good Pad Thai in some other restaurants in Ljubljana which are even not specialized for Thai food. Really nice ambient, waiter was friendly....More

Firstly those who say 'expensive' perhaps are accustomed to cheap 'European Asian Food' Let me be frank - great fresh asian food, needs fresh ingredients. These cost more. Our lunch was awesome, prawn red curry - delightful, just like in Thailand. Miso soup was a...More

I liked : the armospher, the location in the heart of the city, the service, the very friendly waiter. I did not like : the food experience, being used to very good Asian food in big European cities. Even if the prices are ok.

The food is good & tasty, the served food is just about right size, but not worth the price. Staff is friendly and prof. It's a slow food restaurant.

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.
