A small, but noisy restaurant just off Little Venice was an ideal spot for dinner. Truly flavoursome food beautifully spiced with attentive service. It was packed on the Thursday evening we went which for such a compact restaurant meant hubbub but this simply adds to the ambiance of the place - not though if you want a quiet conversation. The...

Was staying near here so went for lunch at noon. Service was friendly and the ambience warm. Had a smoky aubergine starter with a chopped tomato salad and nice flat bread. For main course I took the lamb kebabs in pomegranate - this was tasty and the meat was perfectly cooked - a little pink. A Persian date cookie with... More

I have used this place quite a few times when I have been in London on business and staying in maida Vale. As a sit in reataurant it is excellent, with lovely kebabs and fantastic fresh breads. As a take away it is almost as good, there is an online ordering system, but you always have to phone to confirm,... More

We came here on 31 December for an early dinner. The host was very hospitable, and the food quality was top notch. We ordered the lamb kebab, prawn stew, and Quinta de Chicapalha wine. The dishes were deliciously flavoursome, the wine (recommended by the host) was an easy drinking, velvety red blend and the texture of the right was beautiful:... More

My first impression was that the decor wasn't representative of a Persian restaurant, it's actually quite random with art deco paintings of the Queen Elizabeth hanging on the wall! We were sat downstairs as it is quite a small restaurant and the waiters had to run up and down the stairs to attend to us. Way over priced. Everything contained... More

Well queen Elizabeth painting was painted by an Iranian artist and it's hell of lot better than having a painting of your supreme leader. You spend £40 for a party of 2 plus and you are complaining about us being over priced!! In a restaurant where most of the ingredients are organic and extremely expensive. By the way there are...

I have been to most of the Iranian restaurants in London and I will get it out there at the start, my favourite is Mahdi on King Street in Hammersmith. We didn't know that this place existed until we started to look for a bar and somewhere to eat around Little Venice because we were meeting friends. The venue looks... More

Description
On a pretty residential street just off of Warwick Avenue, you'll discover a Persian oasis in the shape of Kateh, a contemporary Middle Eastern restaurant with a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. The Kateh menu is based around traditional Persian cuisine, all utterly authentic, showing those historical French influences in the flairs and techniques something especially seen in Kateh's sublime desserts. Carefully put together by owner Narges Pourkhomami, for whom Kateh is quite clearly a labour of love, the restaurant combines the best of modern Iranian hospitality and style with Persian authenticity and touches of London sophistication. So not only is the menu painstakingly put together to offer guests the perfect dining experience but Kateh's surroundings; the white washed walls, the simplistic furniture and the eccentric reclaimed tabletops, add that something extra that elevates one's visit to the next level. Al fresco dining can be enjoyed out in the restaurant's Mediterranean inspired terrace, which whisks you away on a short holiday without ever leaving the ground.
