Kateh Maida Vale 22

Squaremeal Review of Kateh Maida Vale ?

Smartly designed, light and airy, with rough-plastered white walls and dark-wood tables, this canal-side restaurant specialises in a blend of traditional and contemporary Persian cuisine based on the day’s market produce (much of it organic). You can make an entire meal from a selection of beautifully presented mezze such as zeytoon parvardeh (Taggiasche olives with pomegranate and walnuts), jigar (pan-fried organic chicken livers with balsamic, carrots and leeks) and mirza ghassemi (grilled smoked Japanese aubergines with eggs, tomato and garlic). The kitchen also delivers a range of ‘natural’ char-grills (marinated partridge on Umbrian lentils with angelica powder, for example), plus a few fish dishes and veggie stews, while desserts combine distinctly Persian ingredients with classical French cooking techniques – try danmarki (a Middle Eastern-style mille-feuille). Kateh also flies the organic flag when it comes to wines from smaller producers and appellations.

Kateh is a restaurant specialising in Persian food, located in Little Venice down a quaint side-street, on a site formerly occupied by the Green Olive. My dining comrade and I had been meaning to go for some time, it being local and also having being recommended by a Persian friend. When we arrived on a weekday night, the place was almost full, generally a compelling endorsement for any restaurant. However, from there it went somewhat downhill. We were greeted in a rather brusque fashion by the owner,...

Persian Delight

by   bronze reviewer (8)

Sep 2013

Kateh has been shortlisted as Time Out‘s Best New Local Restaurant and deservedly so. Tucked away in a hidden Little Venice street and designed in warm, earthy hues, what must be London’s cutest Persian restaurant is a tiny piece of treasure. Each part of our meal was a delight and every bit of it was homemade, right down to the brilliant Taftoon flatbread which managed to be both feather-light and bursting with aromatic flavour, and the exquisite Persian date and walnut cookies (which arrived warm...

Small but elegant and cosy place, tucked away off the Warwick avenue. It seems family run. Very pleasant and attentive service. All adding up to definite up-market image. V.s. usual Iranian places menu is refreshingly short, but still contains all the favourites. Cooking is obviously authentic and of high quality. Still not pompous and not chefy. In order to cover wide variety of dishes, two of us tried non-meaty starter, stew and grill dishes. All very well cooked. After enjoying Iranian food in...
