I stumbled upon Puran's on accident one night. I was in Los Feliz with a friend to pick-up some music from another friend and there was a ton of traffic and we were starving so we pulled over at the first place we saw which was Puran's. I

Puran's is one of my absolute favorite restaurants! The food is delicious, they have a nice wine selection, and their desert is wonderful, too! Puran is there much of the time to greet customers and make sure everything runs smoothly. I crave their food. Their bread and tomato "dip/spread" is so good; I could eat it all night! The area is fabulous because it's not too Hollywood, but you never know who you'll run into. I think of it as casual chic. I love the atmosphere, but here fusion of flavors from around the world are genious!!

I tried this restaurant with a friend last year and the food wasn't exactly what we expected it to be for a health conscious restaurant. There are definitely better health conscious restaurants out there that will definitely give you more of your money's worth.

We came for a lunch, mid-week with some friends. I'd only been here once before, years earlier. It got nasty just as we were finishing our meal.\r

Pros: the insect seemed to be eating good..

Cons: not a big fan of insects on tables.

STAY AWAY

well...do you like COCKROACHES?...didn't think so. Neither do I.
Seeing one scurrying across the floor while eating is quite disturbing, and with the front doors open, I thought it was just a random occurrence, and I didn't inform the other people I was eating with, no need to ruin every ones meal. But then after using the bathroom and seeing not one more, but TWO more cockroaches?
That is UNACCEPTABLE!!
I've already called the Health Department on this place...as it's truly disgusting.
If you have eaten here and not seen one, consider yourself lucky. Seeing 3 within 15 minutes just make me wonder how many are hiding in the walls, waiting to take a nibble from your plate!!!
I was sickened to the point of losing my dinner after I got home.

NEVER AGAIN...STAY AWAY!

Food is fantastic. Very healthy selection. Prices are very reasonable. Two locations to choose from. Great staff and atmosphere. If you're going to the La Brea Location, make sure to park in the back. Just a little heads up because for the longest I had no idea you could even park behind the restaurant and go through the back door. The chicken penne is the BOMB, the fillet kabobs are AMAZING. Everything that I have ever had on the menu has been impressive.

The menu has variety of items from Greece, Italy, Mexico and beyond. Organic and natural. Think this place is still relatively hush hush. Food is always fresh and good.

We have been meaning to try Puran's for some time and finally got around to it. The entrees were excellent, composed of high quality meat (we had the filet mignion and ahi tuna) and extremely tasty side dishes (notably the vegetables).
