Smartly designed, light & airy, with rough-plastered white walls & dark-wood tables, this canal-side restaurant specialises in a blend of traditional & contemporary Persian cuisine based on the day’s market produce. Expect beautifully presented mezze-style dishes such as kashke bademjan (grilled baby aubergines with dried mint, soured yoghurt, fried onions & walnuts), koobideh (grilled, minced veal with saffron rice & homemade flatbread), & fessenjan (walnut & pomegranate stew with Barbary duck & saffron). Desserts, meanwhile, combine distinctly Persian ingredients with classical French cooking techniques: try danmarki (a Middle Eastern-style mille-feuille) or koolouche roodbar (date & walnut cookies with homemade cinnamon ice cream). The wine list (from £14) features an innovative selection of organic tipples alongside those from smaller producers & appellations. Kateh also boasts a private dining room & a pretty garden terrace.
