Love this place. Recommend you book since tables are limited. Fav dishes are the mixed grill for 2 people and the chicken Tika with fresh mango and rice. Staff and friendly and attentive. In short. A great locals only spot.

We've now dined at Kateh twice and plan to go back again (and again). Everything is fresh, beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious. Service is knowledgeable, helpful and professional.

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.

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.
