Fabulous! Even meat-eaters will like it. – I've been here several times and always enjoyed fabulous food! They have a variety of options for both vegetarians and vegans, and even my meat-eating friends love it. I don't have anything in particular to recommend because everything I've had there has been excellent. The staff is sweet and wonderful as well. It's an absolute gem of a restaurant. Writing this review makes me want to go back!
Amazingly tasty Thai food – Gone are the days where I could walk to Bulan, but the memories of their pad see ew with veggie pepper steak still linger in my mind.
Sentimental feelings aside, Bulan is one of my favorite Thai food places, vegetarian or not. Their veggie pepper steak is so ridiculously tasty and savory that it's difficult to tell that it isn't really meat. The same goes for their crispy fish plate with green apple and chiles. Add a side of coconut rice, and prepare for a heavenly experience.
The staff is super friendly as well. Bring cash, and they'll give you a 5% discount.
Robotic Lunch – The food is excellent. The foreign bodies in it aren't. Got a quarter inch piece of a screw or metal shaving in my curry. Also a hair. I'm not picky but this is rather pushing it. Won't be ordering from this place again.
Amazing Vegetarian! – My first review on a place that is to die for!!! I am a vegetarian, vegan when I can be .. my boyfriend on the other hand is not! It's always a challenge to find good eats that will meet both of our needs.
I've eaten here a million times and thought I just might be able to pull one over on him because it's that good!!! One night I pulled out the menu and said let's have Thai tonight! After scanning the menu he decided on the Green Curry with "Chicken" ... little did he know ... nor does he still know .. it's not really chicken! He LOVED it. We will forever be fans and keep going back for more!!
Great Thai, even if you're not a vegetarian! – This little restaurant has such good food! At first I was hesitant because I'm usually not into fake meat but you can barely tell at this place. I even had the "chicken" wings and love them!
Best Thai in 'hood – As a former New Yorker, I've eaten at my share of excellent Thai restaurants. When I moved to LA, I tried a number of Thai restaurants, but wasn't blown away. Which is why I was SO glad to come across Bulan. I've gone there many, many times at this point and have yet to be disappointed. Fake meats can be hit-or-miss, but these are really well prepared. (Favorite dish: spicy fried rice with pepper "steak".) The food is delicious, the service is efficient and courteous, and the atmosphere is casual and cozy. I take all my non-veggie friends there and they rave about it as well. Highly recommended!
At this Melrose Thai eatery formerly known Busaba, the only meat on the menu is made out of vegetable protein. – In Short
Herbivores can at last enjoy the sweet tang of Thai cooking without worrying that any of the "vegetarian" dishes might actually have chicken stock hidden somewhere in the preparation. The owners and chefs have interpreted dishes from throughout Thailand, without incorporating any meat, fish, refined sugars, MSG, or saturated fats. Occasional weekend jazz performances make the spare, elegant dining room even more intimate, but the real focus is on the food; Items like a spicy, tofu lahb salad, vegetarian entrees like garlic-sauteed asparagus, and a variety of rich curries.
