Delicious, organic, fresh combinations here. I love the dishes with meat, veggies and couscous or try the Pizza as well.

We first visited Purans two years ago and on a recent return visit were delighted to see that it was just as we remembered. Relaxed, good service, warm and friendly and never too busy.

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.
