I have been to Da buda several times and 9/10 the food was great. I especially like their pad thai, spring rolls, sesame steak and satay chicken. Freshly made ice tea is good, so are the cocktails. The menu offers a good selection, but they could upgrade the dessert section. Also, the prices are about 15% higher than other similar... More

I love the cashew chicken here but I think it costs more than it should. Everything is a euro or two more than it should be. The atmosphere inside is great and really modern and nice. The bathrooms are really nice.

I am frequent guest in Dabuda, since I really enjoy their food. They have also good cocktail selections. The atmosphere is very relaxing. The staff is very friendly and always recommend the very best dishes. For students, there are always some promotions such as cocktails half off,...

I went there twice since the first time around i enjoyed the curry but the second time was awfull. Ordered ramen which was an abomination - not ramen at all just a bad soup with stuff in it - should be taken off the menu or reworked. Was served with decent beef though. Pad thai can be done at home... More

there are not so many Asian options in this part of Ljubljana so it is worth to stop. The food was ok, nothing outstanding but a bit pricey for what you get. The location is good - not far from the parking garage, Tivoli or Old town

We chose DABUDA for the last 3 years and they always prepare for us very tasty dinner. They prepare special menu and each one can choose what he liked.

I came here as Rick Steve's had recommended it in his travel guide. The environment is hip and modern, there's a bar as well. I ordered the tom yom soup which was really good (a bit less lemongrassy than the states' but still good). BUT...then came our entrees and it was gross. We had the beef ramen which tastes like...

A nice place to have a delicious meal. The fusion of different Asian cuisine works perfectly fine and the staff ist well-trained. The location itself is setup in a modern Asian style with enough space for larger groups.
