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.

Very nice Persian restaurant on a quiet side street near Warwick station - small but clean and well appointed. As I frequently eat Persian food in Los Angeles (Tehrangeles for some), I found the cuisine here to be excellent and perhaps a bit more "progressive' than some more traditional style Persian restaurants.

Good food, but portions are small and quite pricey. The bonus for us was that it had an excellent Greek white wine in the wine menu...more
Went back last night and it was still gorgeous as I remember - the portions are small but tasty.., my favourite are still cold starters and grill. Any salad / cold meze are excellent and any frill is lovely. Meat dishes tend to be better than sea food.more
The food is good, but the service is extremely slow and amateurish. I also felt like the majority of the staff were only interested in their Farsi speaking customers. So I'm not to inspired to go out of my way to return. Poor service aside (and the serious stomach cramps that doubled me over 30-minutes after meal), the food is pretty good.
The kashke bademjan - baby aubergines with mint,...more
Well to start the food tasted great! I need a half star option because it wasnt quite worthy of 5.
The service was great, polite, friendly and very fast! We did eat early but it became very busy! The ome thing that let down this lovely restaurant was it is quite tight inside if they removed a table it would have just allowed that nice bit of breathing space.
But in my eyes the food....quick...more
