What a fun place and so unexpected in this strip of Sunset where lashes of verbal abuse are freely delivered. The presentation was very southern Indian, the aroma matched it and the taste confirmed it.

Tried the paru's special thali. It had a sample of most of the dishes. A great try. The pongal was really yumm too. It dint feel like a typical restaurant food, more of a home cooked feel.

Had dinner with family there. This was one of the few vegetarian restuarants and it was good for me. The options were really limited to choose from. The taste was authentic.

Located in not the best of areas (not too dangerous or run down either) but the ambiance was fantastic! The food is not too spicy or excessively masala-filled .. it's homely, simple and good! We went there for dinner and ordered the thali - it was definitely filling and felt good on the stomach! I think in the LAX area, this would be one of the best South Indian retaurants

Expected a lot but failed to meet the taste and quality of south Indian cuisine. Paru is named after Parvati the lady with a vision of serving south Indian delicacies. The restaurants is run by a Tamil family, hence I expected a great south Indian meal. We had masal dosas and a thali. The thali had 2 vegetable curries, puris, a sweet, rice and sambar. Overall the thali was just OK. The masala dosas were not as I would have expected from a south Indian cook. The sambar for below average. Madras coffee was good! The restaurant is situated in a shady looking area (not sure though). Finding parking space close to restaurant was a challenge.
