Cuisine_Focus_Persian_KatehWritten by RICHARD PIPER

Situated on Warwick Place, just a stone’s throw from the chic and fashionable area of Little Venice in London, Kateh serves Persian cuisine that the proprietors claim is the very latest in this ever-popular genre. The project is the realisation of Narges Pourkhomami’s dream to offer London’s residents the best of traditional and contemporary Iranian hospitality. Kateh combines authentic and modern Persian cuisine in what Narges describes as ‘an elegant yet relaxed and intimate setting, seating just 75 diners’. Menus feature 33 dishes on a daily basis with inspiration taken from the pick of the day’s market produce. The restaurant has private dining for up to 12 people and also benefits from a garden terrace – available with a late license for up to 25 guests. The menu, pleasingly, features the classic Persian stew ghormeh sabzi – a combination of veal, fresh herbs, red kidney bean, and the ever-present dried lime. Served with saffron rice, it is a dish that will satisfy whatever the weather. Desserts are homemade and authenticity personified. Bastani, or saffron ice cream with pistachio, is top of the list, which also features falloodeh – a Persian rice noodle sorbet served with fresh lime juice.
