Good restaurant. Excellent skewers and stew of the day.
A bit noisy though when full as the room is quite small.
I wish they had also more sophisticated rice... just plain rice/Saffron rice in the menu.

This is a charming restaurant with friendly and efficient staff, but the best aspect is the absolutely fantastic food. I had a lamb stew special, we had bread and aubergine appetizer. This was probably our best meal in London. The neighborhood is charming. It was an easy and pleasant walk from the Novotel Hotel where we were staying, close to Paddington Station. The management made us feel welcome. The restaurant was busy but we didn't feel rushed. Everyone at their tables seemed to be having a wonderful time.

An interesting restaurant with a great location and ambience.
From the apple, fennel and dill salad, to the classic walnut and pomegranate stew, via grilled octopus and chicken livers, definitely worth checking out

One of the best Persian meals I have ever had. I travel for business quite a bit and have been to many Persian restaurants all over the world. They were extremely welcoming and friendly and made sure that everything was to our liking. I am looking forward to going back.

We were called to be informed that there was no high chair for our child.

There were a few people waiting outside just before opening time. Even when the waiter walked to the window , he did not indicate that the restaurant was open. Only when someone walked in to ask did we know it was open.

Once inside, the service was very good as well as the dishes. They were well presented and very tasty.

We would return...

Absolutely delicious Persian food in a super-cosy and relaxing environment. The staff is very friendly with just the right degree of professionality. The wine collection is excellent. Kateh received a well deserved Michelin Bib-Gourmand prize!

Delicious upmarket and authentic Persian food. Service is good.
The restaurant is small and tables are very close together so it’s very noisy and difficult to hold a conversation.
Prices are high! Average £90 per couple for 2 courses with drinks. £4 for a pot of tea seems excessive.
