Do not miss the wonderful Thali at Paru's pure vegetarian restaurant. The entrance to the restaurant can be a bit surprising. However, once inside its a cozy restaurant with Authentic Indian Cuisine.

This is a vegetarian restaurant in the Sunset Blvd location, about 15 minutes walk from the Sunset Vermont metro station. The food was good, go for the combo deals if you want to try multiple dishes at once.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
