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

I met a friend for dinner and we had a selection of starters and a bottle of wine. All were excellent but the potions were small. The size was almost tapas-size. The food and service were both excellent though.

It is impossible to anticipate the nature of this charmingly located restaurant, nestled away in an ancient cobbled street in Little Venice, but like all good stories, open the door and walk in and prepare to be surprised. The menu is complicated, but explained beautifully by a man I can only imagine was the owner, a deduction I made simply... More

We were excited to try Iranian food and after research, settled on Kateh. It is easily reached by tube, exiting at the Warwick Avenue station, and walking about 5 minutes to Warwick Place. The restaurant is small, seating only about 36 patrons, and when full, is noisy. Reservations are a MUST. We had a reservation and at that, we had... More

Nice little restaurant but not suitable for a party of ten. We were given a table at the basement- the only available table for 6 people max- and felt quite restricted. The variety of plates and tastes was nice but the amount of food in out plates was limited! I ordered twice to feel like I had a proper meal!... More

Perfect Persian food with a great atmosphere. Loved every course, especially the saffron ice cream and left dinner feeling very content. Easily the best use of ingredients in Persian cooking in London I have seen so far. We have already booked to go back!!

Persian restaurant with an authentic menu. Good atmosphere and friendly service. The basement of the building has been imaginatively transformed to provide a bright and airy environment.

we've been there last week and it was a great experience: The food was really good and delicious Wine list was over price It was a nice restaurant but you can see they tried to put lots of chairs and tables in small area so it was super crowded, you need to shout when you want to speak with others.

I've read a lot of negative feedback about this place and wasn't really a big fan of going there for a dinner but ended up there on Friday night for dinner. I booked the place via email which was convenient and had a confirmation call about an hr before the booking time. The food is good (but small). The only... More

We turned up here after travelling all day and asked if there were any spaces and the staff organised a table for 3 within 5 mins (this may not happen all the time i'm sure)..... the waiter was extremely polite and we had a good bit of helpful assistance with food allergy requirements. The food was second to none.... Beautifully... More

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.
