Featured in Time Out's '100 best dishes in London', Kateh in West London serves authentic Persian food and boasts a Michelin Bib Gourmand. 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 in Maida Vale is a 2-minute walk from Warwick Avenue Tube Station.

Waiting staff was not very friendly or helpful - did not feel welcome. Disappointing as I love Persian food normally.

Lovely restaurant in a great location near little Venice. The staff were freindly and welcoming throughout the evening. We all enjoyed our food and drinks, choosing to each have a starter main and a desert with a Portuguese wine our server recommend. We left very happy and content, after thoroughly enjoying our time at Kateh and we are all looking forward to our next visit.

The food was much better in the past. we had a koofteh sabzi, kasha bademjoon and kabab torsh. Really the quality and the taste of the food wasn't as good as before. It is a shame.
