Excellent Isaan fare

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4 stars

Inexplicably named Shambala is an excellent Isaan restaurant, with a minimalist designer interior (except for the Chinese shrine) and a host of ladyboys to bring you your plate of grilled chicken.

As confusing as the décor/ladyboy/cuisine combination is, it all works. The food really delivers: som tam, grilled meats, Isaan salads of all description, laap, and sticky rice are washed down with cold beer.

These ladyboys obviously know their stuff.

Not much English is spoken, but the menu is bilingual, and the air-con is powerful. Dishes from 40 baht.
