About
Tulen stands for something done The Right Way. We at Tulen Restaurant believe that Balinese Traditional Cuisine is an undiscovered jewel often reserved for religious ceremonies or for locals in their family compound and being so, generally unavailable to foreign visitors. We aspire to change that — to offer a more refined and sophisticated version for all who visit Bali. Tulen also offers a variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes as well as an ‘Off Bali’ section featuring a selection of international cuisines for those who crave for a more familiar ‘taste of home’. You’ll find our restaurant in a breezy and lush Sri Wedari street, just a few minutes ride uphill from the centrally located Royal

Lovely little restaurant with a great view of the rice fields. The ambience is the evening is quite magical, especially with the moonlight and stars lighting up the sky! The food was quite amazing for such a little joint. Fresh and well cooked by an...attentive and friendly staff. The steak and potatoes are probably the best value I ever gotten on the island. We will come back to Tulen and we highly recommend it for a nice romantic dinner or a casual friends date!More

Visited Tulen for a birthday dinner. The owner was present and personally described the items on the menu. Everything we ordered was delicious and well prepared. Dessert was great. The menu is at a higher price than the average Ubud restaurant, but not as high...as the resorts or more-known expensive restaurants. The quality of the meal and the amazing view/ambiance are worth the slightly higher price. The overall value was worth the price. This is a great place for an upscale celebration among the rice fields.More

My husband and I live in Ubud. Tulen has been one of our favorite restaurants for dining out and getting together with our expat friends. It was closed when the covid 19 started striking Bali. It re-opened again. We went there last night. It was...our 3rd visit since the re-opening. The dining area is open and surrounded by rice fields. At sundown, it is so relaxed and beautiful. Food menu is diverse and innovative. We ordered tuna sambal matah with rice crackers and beef steak and pho. We enjoyed it all. Steak is amazing as it has always been. Silvio is experimenting/making baklava and signed us up to be his guinea pigs. So we ordered durian ice cream and tamarillo to accompany his baklava ... it went so well together ... a happy ending!!! We both are appreciated the warm hospitality and attentive service by Silvio and his staff. My husband said they also have great wine selection there. Covid notes: spaces between tables are decent. Waiters, waitresses wear mask. We both got hand sanitizer sprayed when we first entered the restaurant.More

If you’re wanting something in a league of its own, and you’re a real foodie and looking for fabulous flavours with a romantic rice field setting, relaxing lighting, & groovy music, then look no further. I’ve dined here a few times and tried different things...& always enjoyed each delicious menu option. I’m plant-based & the chef gladly accommodated my request for a medium spicy, no fish sauce Thai curry (new on their menu) - super tasty! The charcoal ravioli is so unusual and flavoursome, the vegetable lasagne is truly decadent (I couldn’t finish it!) and the desserts are too. Try the lightly warmed white chocolate cake with fruit coulis and passion fruit. A perfect tangy zing to end your taste bud heaven visit! They also have an amazing selection of hand-picked wines (I’ve never found good wines in all my 7 years of coming to Bali!) and they are either fruity, or crisp & light, or full-bodied, or subtly sweet with a quality fragrant bouquet that will have you coming back for more! If you’re wanting something way beyond the ordinary, then this is the place and It’s worth every single rupiah!More

This is one of the best restaurants in Ubud that brings a smile to my face and my belly time and time again. The setting and ambience is perfect for any occasion - great place to wine and dine, especially if you're on a date!...The food is delicious. I'm always tempted to have the same meal as last time as I know it was incredible, however I'll try a new course on every visit and i'm never disappointed. The manager is a great guy and I love the fact he is hands on ensuring everything is just perfect. So what more is there to know?... I highly recommend you try this for yourself :)More

I must admit that this place is still surprising me with how much effort they put in their work. The ambiance is gorgeous and it's hard to tell is it nicer during the day or in the evening when all reflectors illuminate surrounding rice fields....I'm really happy that they reopened and that they're serving their steaks again, because I didn't have a descent beefsteak since I got here... Big, tender and juicy, precisely grilled, all I can say about this steak is Waugh! Liver pate, 300gm steak with roasted potatoes and two glasses of really nice wine costed me around 25$, which is incredibly cheap for such an exquisite meal.More
