A Casual and One of a Kind Restaurant

Paradise LA is an independent family (LA native!) owned and operated restaurant located in the city of Gardena near downtown Los Angeles. We are an under-the-radar restaurant with relatively no street visibility, little signage, and do not advertise.  We have grown strictly by word of mouth.  We are a mellow setting in which everyone is welcome; our customers set the pace (quick and professional at lunch, relaxed at night), and we are the only restaurant in Los Angeles that boasts a menu created exclusively by its customers.



Our Menu

Our customers asked for a menu of fresh fish, healthy salads, light pastas, thin crust pizzas, innovative sandwiches, and delicious soups.  They wanted freshly prepared from scratch (on site) foods sans partially-hydrogenated oils, before it became oh-so-chic.  And we listened.  Changes are made solely at the request of our customers.

Heart Healthy

Our heart-healthy menu earned Paradise LA a spot in the Choose Health LA program.  A proud participant, the Choose Health LA program features Los Angeles restaurants that offer healthy food choices as a foundation for a healthier life style.
