Our family has eaten here for brunch, lunch and dinner. I have never had a meal I didn't love. There is great attention to detail in both preparation, ingredients, service and presentation. During our most recent... More

This nice but noisy Hillhurst restaurant can become expensive, but not overly so for this area. Some of us had the special (quite a good deal) but I really wanted the kabob with steak. We were all pleased with our food and the generous service. My steak is worth mentioning as it was cooked as ordered and was tender and... More

A relaxing quiet place and decent dinner. Perfect location for civil conversation and no loud music to scratch your ears and no desperate models on parade to scratch your eyes.

Italian based food but not only this place is friendly, always have a table in this large dining room and welcome you warmly. Food is generally organic, generous and fresh, angel hair pasta with artichoke, sole with couscous... I never have space for dessert but they look fantastic. They screen Charlie Chaplin movies.

Purans is one of those places where you walk in and feel special at once. We had a wonderful server who added to the positive experience. From the delicious bread and dipping sauce, the fish and chips appetizer, the kale salad, my blue cheese burger, my daughter's penne pasta in red pepper sauce, and my wife's veggie burger, the food...

You can always count on Puran's for great service and excellent food. Try it when in the Los Feliz neighborhood.
