Another one of the destination restaurants in Milan, Shambala is 5km south of the Duomo. Follow the trail of hip professionals in the latest SUVs for the best place to eat Thai and Vietnamese. rnrnOwned by the same husband-and-wife team of Compagnia Generale, this is a grander version on a similar theme – ethnic food in a serene atmosphere with welcoming, non-uniformed waiters. rnrnSet inside a stylishly converted farmhouse, there are various dining zones for fine-tuning one’s environment: big rooms, small rooms, a verandah, a tatami for crossed-leg seating, sake-stocked bar dining, amorous Balinese four-poster beds, and an oriental garden in the summer. rnrnPilgrims to Shambala (which in Tibetan is a faraway mythical land of enlightened humanity) are rewarded with generous portions of real Asian food that’s not afraid of a chilli or two in a chilled, yet glamorous setting.
