Puran has a very delicious lunch buffet. They serve a variety of meat dishes during lunch, rice, naan, samosas, and a cold buffet with raita, and chutneys.

Every time I eat here the food is fantastic and the staff are very friendly. There is a buffet side (which I have never tried) and a dining side. I've tried other Indian restaurants in town and this is my favorite. Try the Yellow Dal, the Garlic Naan, and Chicken Tikka Masala. Side note: their "medium" can be spicy some... More

This is my preferred Indian food restaurant in the Bloomington area. Had tried some others but was not thrilled. An Indian associate introduced me to this place and I was very pleased with the quality and quantity of food. Definitely worth checking out if you like Indian food.

Looked up eateries in Bloomington and this sounded best to the palette. Two words: Just go. Seriously some of the best Indian food we've ever eaten! The buffet had a variety of vegetarian and meat dishes, some heat, some mild. There's something for everyone.

There is a surprising variety of good Indian restaurants in Bloomington-Normal, but Puran is hands-down the best. There is an extensive menu that has something for everyone. All of it is scratch made and very satisfying.

I went for a lunch buffet and was disappointed with the quality. Much needs to be done in terms of improving the quality of food in the buffet. The spice index needs some help as well as the variety. One thing that can be immediately addressed is the way the food is laid out for the buffet. Many food items... More

If I could give Puran more stars, I would in a heartbeat. We wandered in, on a Saturday afternoon, unaware of dinner serving at 5p.m. It was about 4:30, and we wanted to celebrate buying a new car. The host never hesitated, but welcomed us in, seated us, and helped us with a wine selection. He treated us as if... More

run by Indian people, your food is cooked to the spice level that you prefer (on a scale of 1-5). service is timely, and seeing many Indian folks eat there tells me that this is one of their favorites too. they have now opened a buffet for lunch, separate from their original dinning area, but connected. the buffet has a...

My son and I spent several hours on the road getting to this restaurant today and were not disappointed! Well maybe a little, but only because we arrived 30 minutes after the closing of the buffet. So we stuck around town, did some shopping at the mall across the street and came back for the sit down, dinner service. The... More
