*PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE RELOCATED* and are now 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.

The food was excellent but sadly the service was not. We waited 40 minutes to be served our drinks order, which had to be retaken as they forgot. Then we waited 30 minutes to pay the bill after attempting to catch someone to let us pay.

We were amazed by the wonderful selection of totally plant based Persian style mezze and mains. We had 6 mezze bowls to share, which were all divine and we opted for a plate of the most amazing dirty fries. Great atmosphere too. We really enjoyed our evening at Koocha Mezze Bar.

I regularly eat and Koocha and have never ever been disappointed. The food is amazing, even my omni friends love it and want to eat there again. The staff are the nicest people you could wish to meet and very helpful. The way the place has been decorated is so lovely down to the leopards painted in the front of the building. Definitely a must visit place.

So much thought went into each aspect of the full english- one of the best I’ve had.
Had bottomless brunch which was incredibly good value, and a nice bottle too (they just leave a bottle on the table for you which is nice).
Atmosphere and decor was also faultless. Will deffo be coming back

Delicious food with delicate flavours. Mezze particularly good value for a shared lunch although the choice is difficult to make as such wonderful variety on offer. Love the decor which is very restful but vibrant at the same time and the gorgeous little dishes the food is served on. Service very relaxed, friendly but efficient.

Food was fantastic, service great. Unfortunately we were sat upstairs with particularlt noisy tables around us. The table behind us were shouting rather than talking.
I was disappointed the staff didn’t take initiative to ask them to be a bit quieter or offer to move us.

We left with ringing ears because it was soo noisy.

Food was 5 star, however I didn’t think the desserts were that good. But food definitely worth to come back for. The recommended 4 tapas per person was slightly too much for us, so going to order slightly less next time.

Food was ok although a lot of things they said they had ran out of. Ended up getting a pesto pasta that was very basic and I could of easily made myself. The staff walked past us a lot without taking our plates or order for pudding. Probably would of ordered more drinks if they would of asked. We had to ask to order, even though it wasn’t very busy and there was more then enough staff. Tables were very cramped and although there were only 2 of us and 2 other customers they sat us next to each other so this felt awkward and cramped. I would eat there again but not in a hurry

Lovely vegan food which went down really well with some friends who haven't been before.

A good quiet time to choose.

Only feedback would be to change back to the flat breads we had before. Much nicer.

The most incredible restaurant in all of Bristol. I have eaten here countless times and have never once been disappointed by a single dish. The service is always incredible, as is the food and value. I crave Koocha’s dishes frequently and would always recommend to anyone, vegan or not

Koocha had delicious food (we chose to share some of their mezze plates). It was £16 for 4 dishes which we thought was very reasonable, the plates were quite small but very tasty. Also, the staff were lovely and attentive! The only downside was that it was very noisy when we went (but that's no one's fault really). I'd love to go back and try their other dishes!

The food was just amazing!!!! The music a little too loud, the staff were fab. I will say though I think the place is a little too small for a large dog in there , hair flying everywhere and the barking was a bit off putting. If the premises were bigger animals would be fine! Something to think about when taking booking xxx

Mezze was amazing.
Service was really slow.
Wasn’t informed that there was no ice cream available that should be served with the desserts, so ate a very dry chocolate brownie, not nice.
Friend ate the saffron and pommagrante cheesecake that was also very “meh”.
I would go again for the delicious mezze, but wouldn’t bother with the desserts.
