It's a nice restaurant. Not the cheapest one but still acceptable. The food is fresh, tastes good, but not overwhelming. Unfortunately, they ran out of all the drinks we were interested in, since this was only mentioned after some minutes we had our food on...More

My wife decided to invite the whole family for birthday dinner and chose the Shambala Restaurant. The first impression is very pleasant; beautiful interior and slightly warm light give an impression of cosiness. The arrangement of tables does not offer enough intimacy, but we did...More

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.

There are many reasons to go to Shambala. It's located in the heart of the old town on one of the prettiest streets in Ljubljana. The restaurant is subtly yet beautifully decorated. I love the peaceful ambiance; it's like being in a Zen garden. And...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.
