This was authentic Moroccan cuisine. The food was extremely tasty, fresh and very true to its origin. Every dish we ordered had all the flavor and taste of real Moroccan food. The owner/ chef made us feel at home, explaining to us the history and style behind every dish we were interested in. We ordered the "couscous royal" among other dishes YUM YUM, also the appetisers where great ,humus and falafel extremely tasty.The parking of the location is not easy to find / negotiate.... as the only entrance is by going south bound on sepulveda south of ventura and then turning west onto dickens,,,treaky parking entrance from the back..large parking lot with ample space .The back entrance is not promising as you almost walk through the bathroom and the kitchen !Do not be discouraged by the modest setting IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY YOUR DINNER AND $$$$ YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED THIS IS A JEWEL AND A DELIGHT.the four of us ate there the first time last Friday but i am sure we will be back many times.
Thank you LA TIMES for the heads -up.

I really don't like to try new foods, but my sister talked me into going. The food was extremely tasty and the waiters were unbelievable. This is now one of my favorite places to eat!

How this place isn't crowded with lines out the door astounds me. The Moroccan food here is world class- Simon was a celebrity chef in Japan! He's also an extremely kind fellow who takes personal care to ensure that you have a great meal.

literally. The tears welled up in my eyes as I tasted Simon's Sole-wrapped Scallops in Bernaise sauce. (It's not on the regular menu, but you should ask about it.) I can't begin to tell you how much love and attention Simon puts into your

I have been a regular customer for the last 3 years and have come to know Chef Simon quite well. Simon is a true class act; a soft spoken, gentleman with over 30 years of experience ranging from being a chef on a cruise ship to owning

Simon's Cafe is in the unfortunately position of being located on a stretch of Sepulveda Blvd. that is anathema to resturant-goers, despite its proximity to a Whole Foods market. Every day, thousands pass by, yet little do they know of

This little place looks unprepossesing from the outside, but inside is an array of mouth-watering delicacies. One of my favorite foods is Meguez sausage, and Simon's is homemade - incredible! All the food is interesting, perfectly
