I'm going out with 4 friends. I need to find a nice, semi-quiet place in the Valley. Van Nuys/Sheman Oaks area. I'd like to target a place that has entrees between $11-$20

Thoughts?

      Maybe somewhere just a bit cheaper.

      Thanks.

      I haven't been but have read good things on Chowhound about Simon in Sherman Oaks. I think it is located on Sepulveda just south of Ventura Blvd.

        Perfect! Simon is an excellent host, it's quiet and the food, especially his lamb tagine is delicious!

        I just went to Spumoni and had a wonderful dinner. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/591433
        On Ventura just W of Van Nuys N. Side of the street.
        Intimate and very personable. Great food.

          Try Puro Sabor (Peruvian food) in Van Nuys on Van Nuys Blvd. & Victory. More in the $11.00 range and just incredible food.
