COMO SHAMBHALA DINING
Our COMO Shambhala Cuisine takes its unique inspiration from the living foods tradition. This maintains the nutritional integrity of the original foods’ essential enzymes, vitamins and minerals and allows you to benefit from the ‘life force’ of specific ingredients—many of them raw, brought from field to table with minimum delay. Organic and locally sourced whenever possible, we serve meat, fish and vegetables and flavours ranging from Indonesian to Italian to Indian.
Showcasing the diverse influences, flavours and spices of Indonesia’s regions, Kudus House offers a truly gourmet Ubud experience. The intimate restaurant occupies a picturesque 150-year-old former Javanese residence, from which it serves both breakfast and dinner. Local breakfast options also include a range of European options.
Glow, is the buzzing heart of COMO Shambhala Estate. A contemporary-styled, open-sided, all-day-dining venue, glow features easy dishes and our nutritious and delicious COMO Shambhala Cuisine—including salads, energising juices and blends rich in living enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
