Nice atmosphere, really delicious food, but it felt a bit like slow food. But all in all a nice evening spent for a fairly normal price.

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!

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.
