Indian taste with descent hospitality

The restaurant gives you a feel of India in every way. Hospitality, ambiance, taste everything is Indian. Its not like other indian american restaurants where you get American version of Indian food. I liked the glasses they used to serve Water.

Best Vegetarian Indian Restaurant in L.A.

I've introduced my friends and family to try the best vegetarian Indian restaurant in L.A. And everyone agrees that Paru's is quite exceptional! A friend of mine took me here back in 2004 and I fell in love with ""Tanjore Double"". Basically, it comes with Masala Dosa, Idli, Vadai, Uppuma, vegetable curry, Sambar and Chutney. And if you want something a little bit more spicy, try their stuffed Paratha, or just order the ""Punjab Glory"" entree.

Money down the drain

Pathetic service coupled by rude attitude. We were 2 families and ordered 2-3 dishes. Most dished very pretty blend, asif they just boiled it and brought it in front of us except for Gobhi Allo, which looked decent in taste. However, potato pieces were way undercooked. When we told them, we got a bad stare and he just took it away. Never brought it back or asked for anything. We had ordered 3-4 more rotis thinking he would get Gobi Aalo back, he never bothered. Overall Bad food and Bad service.

Perfect stop for veggie Indian

Passing through the buzzer iron gates and somewhat dingy outer patio makes the cozy interior feel even more intimate. The two guys that run the show in the dining room are super friendly and helpful, and they serve you pretty fantastic food. A lot, for the money. At first glance it might not look like there's a lot of variety on the meatless menu, but that's in part because each dish comes with a lot of variety itself. Make sure to try the paratha, it's great here.

Charming & Delicious, I'll be back soon!

I'm not a vegetarian, but a trusted vegetarian friend of mine gave this place her word. Still, the dinky outside kept me away a couple months until one night my boyfriend and I decided to dine at Paru's. What a treat! Don't judge a restaurant by it's ""cover"", inside Paru's is wonderfully charming, like a grandparent's living room or a scene from a Wes Anderson film. Pleasant staff and delicious food. Masla Dosa is a must. Mixed vegetable curry, mmm and the best raita (yogurt) I've ever had. Raita with a kick! Highly recommended for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike, you'll leave satisfied and look forward to returning.

YuM! I never write these reviews, but the food at Parus is really amazing. The samosa's are delicious and theTanjure dinner is mind-blowing. Very good service (cute waiter too!)and a very relaxed scene. Parking is a bit of a hassel, but if you are a vegetarian then this place is a must:)

Best Indian food since Berkeley

I lived up in the bay area for a while and fell in love w/ Indian food. Since moving south 4 years ago this is the first place that matched the traditional food I had up north. The Masala Dosa is excellent and a meal in itself. The chickpea curry was spicy with a hint of sweetness. I like my mango lassi a little on the thinner side, not watery but not so thick it reminds me of batter, and their's is perfect and served cold. The specials give a wide variety of choices and are a great value. They didn't have all my favorites, since it is south Indian vegetarian, but every dish I tried was excellent.

A diamond in the rough!

I lived accross the street from this place for years without realizing it was there... Similarly, people dining here for the 1st time often miss the entrance and walk right by (probably because it's gated and you have to be buzzed in). But don't let this fool you! Once inside, it's like you're magically transported to India. There's a lovely courtyard garden with tables, followed by a smallish but very cozy restaurant. Last Monday we fooloshly went without making reservations - the fact that this place was PACKED on a Monday night (with a line of people waiting!) speaks for itself. If you're cool with vegetarian, this place rocks!
