A very warm and charming place. Great staff very friendly and attentive. 1st time experience of Persian cuisine and it did not disappoint. Love the marinated lamb.

A fabulous Persian restaurant tucked away in a beautiful street with delicious dishes for just about anyone, vegetarian/vegan included. The assortment of yogurts with bread were probably my favorite and I would highly recommend the roasted eggplant. The chicken kebab was great although not too distinct from other kebabs I've had in the past. The lamb kebab with lamb chops on the side with yogurt and mint was amazing, and my wife (who usually does not like lamb) considered it the best lamb she's ever had. The service was amazing and the waiter was very helpful in explaining the top items on the menu. Highly recommend!

Twice we have booked for a table for two at Kateh and both times been messed around. The first time we had to wait 30 minutes for our booked table, there’s no bar so we had to go to the pub next door. Once in the food was good but we were so hungry by that point i would’ve given KFC 10/10.
The second time we arrived to a packed restaurant only to be seated by ourselves in an empty basement. We waited there for about 10 minutes and the only people we saw were other customers looking for the toilet...we left before even being offered any drinks.
Our experience at this restaurant has been very bad

I was greatly disappointed that this is probably the only restaurant in the United Kingdom especially London which gives you one portion of rice into brackets (small portion) to eat between two people.
I’m also disappointed that the food is not actually Persian food and seems like something my younger sister would make practising at school.
I guess the place does have an atmosphere and would be great for Westerners eating middle eastern food for the first time. But please remember this is not middle eastern food.
I can now say after trying all the Persian restaurants and being the regular with them for many years as well as being Persian myself say handsdown that the best restaurant is Behesht in Harrow Road.
