suggestions for lunch and dinner near Redwood City
A native of Redwood city I frequented a lot of the local places. Since you didn't specify how "nice" you wanted the place to be beside for your price point here are my recommendations.
Bangkok Bay (Thai) (825 El Camino Real Tel: (650) 365-5369)
New Kapadokia (Turkish) (report attached)
Kabul (Afgani) (Belmont)
D'asaro (who knows)1041 Middlefield Road, not the best, not the worst, might be pricier than what you want.
I am sure others will have other suggestions/disagree with me, but those are some that came to mind.
I would say my top 2 would be my first choices.
