Our Favorite Middle Eastern Bistro on the Peninsula

Our family has been enjoying Paradise Kabab House since they first opened 5-6 years ago. We eat here several times a month. The prices are very reasonable, the food is fresh and simply prepared, and everything is natural. This is a great family spot or for a friend's night out. We especially love... read more

The lamb kabab was prepared perfectly, very moist and well-seasoned. The presentation was a little simple for my taste - choosing between veg and rice left the plate a little empty. Service was very prompt and pleasant. Will be back!

This is one of the best Persian restaurants in the area. The family that owns/cooks are lovely people. Unrelated employees are treated respectfully and are just as nice. The food is really yummy and always consistent.

Although this isn't the best place to eat in RWC, and the decor is a bit plain, the mom and pop who run the place are the sweetest you'll ever find. He's the only guy in the kitchen, and he takes great pride in his cooking. Every dish is carefully made with subtle grill flavor and good spice. Although nothing... More

My girlfriends and I have made Paradise one of our favorite spots in Redwood City. One of the most popular and totally de-li-cious choices are the lamb "shawarma" and lamb stew. We keep going back not only because of their tasty dishes but because these folks -the charming couple who own Paradise- are so welcoming. The decor is tastefully done... More

I saw the restaurant reviews for this restaurant on TripAdvisor and am glad that I did. The food was as described in the reviews. I had a delicious lamb stew and my partner had the salmon kebab. We also had the soup of the day, which was very good. The entrees were made to order and were excellent. The prices... More

We found this place entirely by accident, walking around downtown Mountain View looking for a lunch spot following a morning doctor visit nearby. It's a friendly, family-run spot, with very authentic, fresh, and flavorful cooking. My wife and I have enjoyed various Middle Eastern cuisines for years, so we know good from bad, and this place is very good indeed.... More
