Good food, tiny servings

I like this place, but I won't go back. The servings are just too small. You can double-size your order (just ask) but at that point the price gets prohibitively high.

Enjoyed the chicken and lamb kababs with rice and veggies. Everything was very tasty and very clean restaurant. The flavors were well spiced without being spicy hot. The chicken was slightly dry but still very good. Friendly family operated. Service was a little interrupting of our conversation. It was a hot day and we were thirsty. It would have been... More

We were in Palo Alto for Stanford graduation and had a small celebratory dinner at Paradise--for me it truly WAS paradise. I lived in Iran a number of years ago and what a treat to experience those delicious smells and tastes from an expert Iranian cook! Our party ordered a variety of dishes and shared bites and oohs and ahhhs.... 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!

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 the garlic eggplant dip, grilled chicken and... More

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
