We'd been walking for a long time and this was the first place we found walking down Melrose Avenue. The menu has some great options. I decided to go for the spring rolls, sautéed vegetables and an entree called the "eggplant lover". I really enjoyed the spring rolls as a starter, they were presented very well. I wish I hadn't...

Ordered take-out and was absolutely blown away by the portions, the presentation and the TASTINESS. Order the spicy papaya salad to go along with your meal, it's awesome! The pad thai is also delicious, very light and flavourful. Definitely ordering from here again.

Located in a small storefront on Melrose, Bulan uses very fresh ingredients to create imaginative and delicious vegetarian Thai food. We both had the lunch special (green curry and a red curry, each with a hearty brown rice and greens. Superb.

Really good option for vegetarians and vegans in the area. Their pad thai and red curry were amazing.

The thai food here is made with fresh and real ingredients. Everything I've tried has been delicious, just great food. The Hot Wings are unbelievable! Very creative and so satisfying, I've never had anything like them. The staff is very friendly. They greet you warmly upon your arrival, and send you off with a smile and a yummy bag of... More

The portion sizes are absolutely correct for sharing with another person or filling up one hungry vegetarian/vegan eater. The regular menu items are as special as any of the new "special" menu items. Every dish is well presented and full of flavor, without weighing you down. Great tastes and totally satisfying, plus fast service.

I wandered into Bulan almost by accident. Just looking for something to eat in the neighborhood on Melrose. Best curry ever! Terrific flavor. Brown rice was perfect. $10! Small place. Clean. Nice people. I can't wait to go back. Only bad thing: no beer or wine.

Food was really good, staff never were greatly polite. Price was very reasonable considering the food we ordered was perfect to taste. Would definitely come again!

I love a vegetarian place where I can enjoy anything on the menu, and this Thai place serves up great stuff: every dish is well portioned, very flavorful, visually pleasing, and totally satisfying. Service is fast and friendly too. The small space makes for loud company when all the tables are full, and you might have to wait for the... More
