Featured in Time Out's '100 best dishes in London 2012', Kateh in West London serves authentic Persian food with modern touches. Sitting by the canal in Little Venice, the restaurant is relaxed and intimate, and also has a beautiful garden terrace.

The Kateh restaurant menu is testament to the owner’s wealth of experience cooking Persian food. Start with grilled aubergines, mint and yoghurt, or narguessi, a filo parcel of spinach, feta and walnut. Mains include marinated chicken breast in pomegranate juice with saffron rice, beef sirloin tikka with Turkish yoghurt and paprika, and Iranian cod stew with fresh tamarind. Described by Time Out as ‘better than at any other Persian restaurant in London,’ desserts are far from overlooked. Saffron ice cream with fresh pistachio, and Persian rice noodle sorbet with fresh lime juice are amongst the fragrant options.

Kateh in Little Venice is simple and homely, with white walls and Persian artwork accentuated by the subtle lighting. The cosy atmosphere and traditional cuisine have earned the restaurant a stellar reputation.

Kateh Maida Vale is a 2-minute walk from Warwick Avenue Tube Station.

    As always at Kateh, the food was lovely and the service fantastic. The atmosphere at the restaurant is great and the personnel go above and begin to make your evening great. An example of this is that I forgot my phone at the table and the waiter came running all way down the street and around the corner to catch up with me and hand it back to me. Definitely worth a, if not many, visits.
