Buzzy, busy and bright! Lovely Persian food at reasonable prices served by happy, pleasant staff. Was of course chock-a-block full because of being a special day but that only added to the atmosphere. Will certainly again.

We wandered past this restaurant, thought it looked cute so decided to book it for an after work meal and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, full of so much flavour! The staff were very friendly, attentive (but not too much that it put you off) but they knew their food & wine. They were explaining how to... More

Kateh apparently serves the latest in popular Persian cuisine and is set in the prettiest of streets, home to one of London’s finest restaurants. The inside of the restaurant is very tiny, full of character with small chandeliers, mirrors, soft red lights and a pretty intimate atmosphere. The space is very limited, so it can be difficult to move around... More

Thank you for visiting kateh, the mix grill that you kindly mentioned is 900 grams of organic lamb, chicken and beef. It's meant for 2 to share!! That's 450 grams of organic high quality meat per person!! I'm sorry you left the restaurant hungry after that. You are also disappointed with the Atomsphere?? We make sure we improve on that,...

We went to Kateh a few weeks ago for the very first time and am now obsessed! The restaurant is tucked away in Little Venice near the canal down Warwick Place. Its like a little bistro inside, cosy and romantic with really friendly staff. The menu is wonderful with a fabulous choice of starters, mains and desserts! Our friends ordered... More

I visited here with a work colleague on a Monday evening, we hadn't booked but I would recommend booking as we were quite early so managed to get a table but it did get very busy.

I'm not really into Persian food, but I did find this restaurant charming. It is small, although it also has a downstairs area, packed, and very noisy. The menu is very different from anything I have seen before. The starters were excellent - I had aubergine and the missus had prawns, and we stole from each other as we could.... More

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...

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.
