Decor, Vibe – Paradise Kabab House has basic interior decor with plain seating, large pictures of their food, and Persian decorations. The place was sparsely filled at lunch with local workers.
Paradise Kabab House Menu has a variety of Kababs, combos, stews along with some vegetarian options.
Complimentary square cut soft pita bread with chopped up vegetables.
Combo #2 Kabab ($13.99) SOLTANI – One chenjeh (marinated chunks of lamb) & one koobideh (ground lamb) with steamed rice and vegetables. The chopped lamb was a bit gamey with a salisbury steak like flavor. The chunked lamb was tender and a bit gamey. Nice steamed rice and a couple veggies.
Combo #4 Kabab ($13.95) SHAHANEH – One koobideh (ground beef), 1/2 skewer of tumeric marinated chicken breast chunks, & 1/2 skewer of marinated tender beef filet chenjeh. The chicken had good sized chunks of moist meat. The ground beef was lacking in flavor with the beef cubes offering better texture and juiciness.
Paradise Kabab House had basic service with a guy wandering by every so often checking on water, etc. The owners did circulate once or twice to take orders, check on us. The food is decent and pretty healthy here, making it a solid bet if you are in the area. Taste-In in Burlingame gets our vote as a better bet. High end places like Shalizaar are also not far.
