Nothing remarkable. Nothing terrible. Most of us living in or around cities and towns in the United States and much of the rest of the world have places which can satisfy our desire for Chinese food even when we know the cuisine will be Westernized...More

Went to this place with high expectations. Location isn't the best in town. Decor is typical for such restaurants, but not to my personal taste. Food isn't bad but expected better. My wife enjoyed the sizzling chicken dish which she found nice. Still ended up...More

I have visited this restaurant before, and it remains my favourite Chinese restaurant in Ljubljana. As before, the staff is very friendly, the food is excellent, the portions are generous, and the prices are decent. What more can a hungry tourist ask for? Very recommended.

Genuine Shanghai cuisine in Ljubljana. Seemingly off-centre, but Ljubljana is small and it is about 10 minutes’ walk from the city centre (University, Philharmonic Hall, and Theatre), or just 2 minutes from the Central Market, Tourist Information Centre and the funicular to the Castle. It...More

My wife and I felt like something different from the usual food we had been eating in Slovenia for a week. Luckily we stumbled upon Novi Sanghai Restaurant. It is in a little back alley. There is a sign on the main street. The menu...More
