I was recommended this restaurant as a very authentic Iranian food from north of Iran. The waiter was Italian and could not even pronounce the food. His description of the food was totally wrong. I even heard him making up total stories about the cuisine...More

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.

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...More

hello, I do not know, but for sure, in a review with a very bad response, it was signed by the owner. So, I think the manager is the owner. When we visited in July, a regular Iranian customer told us the owner had... 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.
