On arrival, we were promptly seated. The Waiters were friendly and attentive! We asked for a Keema and Sesame Naan, both of which were tasty. It was the first time I had seen Naan bread done that way - a thinner dough that was almost pizza like! We requested these arrive as a Starter with the chutney tray! Both Naans... More

I have been to this restaurant many times. It is one of my favorites in Bloomington IL. I like the menu and have never had any dish that has not been excellent. The buffet part of the restaurant is a step below ordering off the menu. Love the cherry naan, the many vegetarian and chicken dishes such as chicken mahkni... More

Puran offers standard fare, but with an extensive menu of additional items. Our touchstones tend to be chicken saag and chicken tikka masala, and Puran did a very good job with both. The wine we ordered was unavailable, but our server offered to subsitute another (higher priced) bottle for the same price. That showed some class, and doesn't often happen.

Their lassi and naan is fantastic. My favorite dish is the chicken rogan josh. The food is always delicious. The service is a bit slow but not unfriendly. Try the cherry naan; it makes a great dessert.

I went for the lunch buffet and it was my first time going to an Indian buffet. Puran had a good selection of dishes to try and they ranged in spicy-ness. It has a ton of space and would be great for a large party. The waiter was very polite and filled our glasses continuously. Overall, I'd recommend Puran!

Generous portions of delicious food at reasonable prices. Highly recommend the Garlic Naan, Tandoori Chicken, and Chicken Vindaloo. Good descriptions of dishes on the menu if you are it familiar with Indian food.

My wife and I have visited Puran on a number of occasions and have gotten takeout from there about as many times. The food is always good, and the staff is cordial. One of the reasons we like this place, in addition to what I've mentioned,is that there menu is pretty diverse and includes understandable descriptions of what is in... More

The place doesn't look look like a typical Indian restaurant. But the food is great. Cost for what you get is good and the food tastes great.

There may be better atmosphere at other Indian restaurants, but the food here tops the others. Go there for the buffet to find out what you want. There's a separate room and entrance (on the right) for that. But the dinners are great too. They do carry-out, and it's been a nice go-to for us besides pizza and Chinese.

When I asked about Indian food in Bloomington, this restaurant was the one most recommended. The food was tasty, not at all oily, and reasonably priced. I had the mixed vegetables dish and yellow dal and enjoyed both. The vegetarian section of the menu must have 20 entrees, about 6 to 8 of which are vegan (no paneer or cream),... More
