“Best Food in Simi Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

My husband and stumbled upon this place on Christmas. We had just gotten back from a trip and didn't feel like cooking and wanted to go somewhere good for Christmas dinner. We are still somewhat new to Simi Valley and have not really been blown away by the food choices. We are so happy we came here. The service was amazing. Izzy, the owner, waited on us and made recommendations, and also said we could send things back if we didn't like them. No chance of sending something back because we loved everything!!! I had the best lamb shank ever. It was so tender, it fell off the bone. No knife necessary. I also had rice with raisons and lentils and that was delicious. The salad that came with dinner was topped with a fresh, home made dressing.
Very nice atmosphere. Very relaxed and we could take our time. Many people came while we were there, and they all seemed to know Izzy and be regulars. I definitely want to be a regular here.
It was a wonderful Christmas dinner. So glad we found Atlas.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We tried Atlas for the first time recently and were very impressed.The food is delicious, good portions for the price, and the service was amazing. The restuarant is extremeley clean and I liked the open kitchen where we can see the food being prepared.

Went there on a Sunday evening with no reservations and got a nice table right away. Especially enjoyed the lamb dish. Saffron rice was very good.

“Nice option for Mediterranean food in Simi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Family owned & operated, Atlas is a friendly place with cooked to order food. In addition to the usual kebabs, koobiden, etc., they make some interesting and tasty dishes with lamb shanks, rice & veggies. The food is fresh, the presentation nice, the atmosphere comfortable.
