Perched next to the river near the end of the village (on the town side) this restaurant sits above the river with an excellent view. The owner, Bronte, is a genuinely nice, relaxed, charismatic, friendly, smart, young local guy with lots of knowledge and he is a great host. He's also the cook and our family thoroughly enjoyed all our...

Stopped by Tribe just for a bite to eat and some beers. Bronte was a great host. Very knowledgeable, chatty and easy going. Was a lovely place to while away a few hours relaxing in good company. Food good also...in particular the chicken coconut curry (can't remember actual name of the dish). Ended up eating and drinking here twice because...

We had dinner here one night and my meal was the worst meal I had in over a month. My daughter would have left her meal if she wasn't "starving" and my wife's was ok. I really felt there was no care or skill put into the food.

Amazing food! Definitely recommend this place if you come to Bukit Lawang. Had the potato curry and it was incredible. Just the right amount of food and the right amount of spice - although I enjoy my food quite spicy. If you want a milder option give the pineapple curry a try - my friend had that and she really...

We had booked the lower room for the first night which although more basic was certainly fine for a sleep before our overnight jungle trek.Our bags were stored and after an exhausting exhilarating night in the jungle we got back to do washing and relax in our lovely upstairs room over looking the river with the cheeky monkeys coming to...

Very welcome guy, this Bronty. Nice place straight on the river with good view of the monkey hangout across the river. Room is cozy but damp as everything is in a rainforest. You have to try their Indonesian food! Made from the hart, fresh raw spices. Simply amazing.

The room looks promising and as long as you don’t have the wrong expectations in terms of cleanliness/comfort, you’ll be OK here. There’s a great view of the river and forest beyond which you can gaze at while relaxing on the balcony in your hammock. Our room was spacious and the location was just a short distance from the boat...

I loved being by this river and surrounded by nature and wildlife. On the first evening I met a couple from the UK who persuaded me to go trekking with them the next day. This was one of the most amazing days I have ever had and also one of the most exhausting! I was almost crying by the end...
