Recently we went to a Persian restaurant I’ve been hearing of, called KATEH…
The following will be a quick review of what we had..
First I’d like to start with a comment which I deeply truly believe is important when I go to a Persian Restaurant..
Go for REAL Persian food.
I found out that KATEH serves authentic Persian , not the indian – Arabic infused or modified version. I do hope it stays that way.
However they do have a stew filled with Arabic spices, that stew is not even close to being Persian, my friends.
now, a heads up of what you should expect when you order Persian;
Cholo Kabab… Rice … NO SPICES … NO Curry …. No spicy food …. Saffron … Lots of Saffron everywhere … embedded Kabab somewhere and stews ! And please do Order Tahchin … Tahchin compliments all the stews and Kababs of the universe.
Okay back to our humble review..
- Quality of Rice and Meat used are better than other Persian restaurants I’ve been to around Kuwait.
A plate of little tiny bit of white feta cheese with a bit of walnut does arrive at your table after the bread, trust me by that time you have completely whipped the once existed bread on the plate, I did make a comment that they should come together.
MAST MUSSEER – was good but also arrived after all the main dishes,
NAZ KHATUN – I Personally loved it and had it as a stew with the white rice, it’s half aubergine/eggplant ( 3ashan la7ad yz3al) topped with beef and spinach and you can feel the sourness, I would definitely order again.
Khashk Bademjun – the typical kashk e – bademjun, very rich eggplant taste with thickened yogurt, was good.
Kababs were really good, tender and well seasoned.
This is a vegetarian stew, more like our traditional Marag spices, goes well with white rice and tahchin.
– I have to say that we did find a hair in the Kabab stuck and partially grilled :/ , but cause it's a new restaurant and I was there on a busy day, I would give them another try. Plus, after mentioning the issue to the manager, they offered us complimentary tea and dessert.
Now my favourite Part ; TEA & DESSERT
We ordered a molten cake which was good and had good chocolate quality. I loved the white dessert which I can't remember it's name, it was amazing I loved the sesame flavoured ice-cream and the thick sauce on the side. Would definately order it again.
The food was good , but the service wasn't so great.
I was there on a friday around 3 o clock for lunch, and expect being on waiting list for an hour or so.
Over all I would give it 7/10.
See you guys soon with a new post !
Thanks for reading 😀
