We are located at 203 B Cheltenham Rd The Arches Bristol BS6 5QX

Koocha was founded in 2018 as Bristol’s first totally vegan restaurant – a plant pioneer, we’ve led the way for animal-free cuisine across the city.

What really sets us apart though is the big, unexpected and delicious spices and flavours from Persia and the Middle East that infuse every dish in our bountiful menu.

Our food is as fresh as it comes, sourced locally and sustainably, everything is made from scratch by our talented team. And whether you’re vegan or not, we pride ourselves on our seductive fare – even the most devout meat eaters have declared their love after a meal at one of our tables.

    Brought a friend here for her first Koocha and she was not disappointed. Even though she is a meat eater she was really impressed with the food. We had the dirty fries and mocktails. Every mouthful was perfect. Polite friendly staff. Just brilliant. Can’t wait to visit again.

    Midweek booking. Took 1 hour to receive food. Food arrived stone cold. Only 10% taken off bill as a result. Took over 25 mins from asking for bill to receiving it.

    My third time dining at Koocha, with an actual vegan this time! He was super impressed, we both loved It. Favourite dish was the sweet potato and feta samosas, and the espresso martini hit the spot too!

    One of the best vegan places in Bristol! I have taken veggies, vegans and meat eaters alike and everyone has loved it as much as me. For this visit, we had the roast and it was one of the best vegan roasts I have ever had in my life!

    I was really disappointed. I’d been wanting to go for a long time. The food was amazing but the staff were incredibly rude - both the manager and the waiting staff. Wouldn’t recommend due to this.

    Hi Helena, Thank you so much for taking time to leave a review. I would like to apologise for your recent experience, on behalf of Koocha. We absolutely pride ourselves in giving great customer service, so to hear you received anything less is extremely disappointing.

    Oh my days, what a treat! We booked this lovely restaurant for a day out in Bristol. My friend and I were only visiting for the day and had many to choose from but what luck finding Koocha. The service was attentive but not pushy. The tables close but not imposing. Decor beautiful, cosy and colourful. And the food, my goodness, an entire menu of interesting, thoughtfully combined, tasty, vibrant vegan treats. We went for 6 dishes of Mezze to sample as much as possible and so glad we did. It was absolutely delicious and we polished off the lot. Left feeling satisfied but not uncomfortably full. Only disappointed we didn’t have time to stay for the cheesecake but time was ticking and we hadn’t actually seen any of Bristol due to enjoying the meal so much! Can’t recommend highly enough and have already told many friends in Exeter that they should definitely head there when visiting Bristol.

Just upset we didn’t get to try the rest of the menu! We’ll 100% be coming back, and we will be most definitely having the pistachio and marshmallow cheesecake again if it’s still going!

    Superb vegan restaurant, with an extensive range of mezze dishes and main courses. We're vegetarian not vegan, and the recommendation to visit came from friends who are carnivores, so if the 'vegan' tag puts you off, forget it: it's just great food. Friendly, fast, service and nice ambience too.

    This is such a relaxed and friendly venue. The food was gorgeous, but we spent so much time chatting and drinking wine that we ran out of time to order the pomegranate cheesecake which I had planned on trying. Seems that we need to back.

    Simply delicious! Beautifully presented food with such unique flavours. Definitely a one of a kind restaurant that I think anyone would love - vegan or not. Menu highlights have to be the gaymeh and frites (which I get every time) and the sweet potato samosas.
