    Lamb mains were excellent salad starters underwhelmed. Overall food and service was very good. Loud table of 4 right next to us made conversation difficult.

    Had a wonderful meal, the food was delicious, well seasoned and good quality produce. The baklava and saffron ice cream was amazing, Cannot fault anything and I will definitely be eating here again. Also loved the layout and design of the restaurant as well, very welcoming and some lovely details with the decor.

    Kateh is outstanding in every respect. The food is spiced to perfection, the menu inventive, the specials are delectable, the service is attentive and efficient, and the ambience is lovely. Such praise is hard to come by and well-deserved.

    Phenomenal food, you could tell local Iranians are there because it was good and authentic. Would proudly recommend, but be conscious of the price - the cheapest bottle of wine we could find was about £40, so if you want to drink with your food, I’d stick to the £6 beers

    Every time we go to Kateh we reaffirm our estimate that it is our favorite restaurant in London if not the world. Only the freshest ingredients are used, the spicing is phenomenal, each item is cooked to perfection, and the presentation makes the mouth water. Every person who works at the restaurant is warm, welcoming, and attentive. Only superlatives will capture the quality of Kateh.

    Kateh is our favorite and go-to resturant with all of our visitors into London. The food is filled with flavor and the staff is friendly, efficient and make the dining experience even better every time. I won't go thru the menu as we have different entrees every time, but I simply ask Paulo (hope I spelled that correctly) to bring the most flavorful item that night, and he is like 20 for 20!
