*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.

    Koocha is a lovely restaurant. There are unusual and tasty cocktails and delicious food, all with great service and friendly staff. I will definitely revisit and highly recommend.

    I went for dinner with my brother who was visiting from London, we have been to Koocha many a time before, and love it. This time we were super disappointed. My brother suffers from a severe nut and sesame allergy so we’ve narrowed it down the few things we know he can eat (allergens list on the website - super helpful). We ordered and told the waitress that he had a SEVERE nut and sesame allergy and told her to note it on the order and inform the kitchen. This obviously went amiss as we were brought out a dish that he could not eat due to sesame. If we hadn’t have been previously we would not have known this was the incorrect dish and it could have been an horrendous mistake on behalf of koocha. We got no apology from the member of staff that took the order, and she wouldn’t serve our table again. This was lucky as we were then served by Freja, who was nothing short of amazing. She was the whole time. Her service was impeccable and we felt like we were friends with her, she was super understanding of what happened and apologised profusely for the mistake. We will definitely return to koocha even after this occasion. Thank you Freja!

    The food was so flavourful and amazing even the non vegans of the group said it was the best vegan chicken they had ever tried. Restaurant was clean and well presented will 100% be back next time we visit Bristol.

    Great decor, loved all the food we ordered except for one dish which was really 'blah' and lacking in flavour (beetroot and burnt orange - I know! Quite an achievement to make beetroot and orange bland!). Really exceptional flavours for every other dish, and particularly the schawarma with mushrooms - it was the stand-out. However the evening was ruined by the cacophony of noise we had to endure throughout our meal. We were upstairs, as were a table of four, and another two tables of two... all of us speaking at normal levels. The other table was a family group of five adults plus two children who shrieked at the top of their voices the entire time for a full hour before the group finally left and the reason of us heaved a collective sigh of relief. At no point did the parents attempt to encourage some kind of appropriate behaviour. I realise kids get bored at restaurants and can be a bit rowdy, but this was beyond acceptable. It was between 7-9pm, so not kiddies' supper time - adults were out trying to enjoy a grown-up meal and have some conversation. A few soft furnishings might help mitigate some of the sound - maybe a rug on the brick wall where the stairs lead up from the ground floor? Service was... OK. Nobody asked if we'd like to order more drinks, even though our glasses had been empty from the time our main courses arrived. We had to flag somebody down to ask about dessert, but in the end decided we could stand the noise no longer - and went to another place around the corner for dessert. Great food, but we really would hesitate to return, based on that unpleasantly noisy experience.

    Absolutely lovely meal. I have nothing to say other than it was delicious and the service was exceptional. I was especially impressed with the list of onion free dishes provided for my daughter who is allergic. Also have to apologise for my noisy 3yr old grandson, this was a family celebration of my sons Graduation and I couldn't really gag him.

    Myself and my partner always stop for a night in Bristol on the way down and on the way back from Cornwall, firstly to break up the journey a bit and secondly to make sure we get an evening at Koocha Mezze. It was our third time this year and we remarked upon how everytime we come the food is outstanding and yet somehow on our next visit it is surpassed. We love it and will continue to visit every time we're in the area, I recommend it to my friends (including the non-vegans). I'm already looking looking forward to next year's visit.

    Absolutely delicious, we had a mix of small plates and topped fries - falafel, samosas and okra fries all big winners. Only downside was the music was a little loud for a brunch/lunch so all tables were having to raise their voices.

    Koocha Mezze Bar is always a delight to eat and socialise at. The serving staff are always welcoming, generous and efficient. The food is fresh and delicious and the price is right too. I went on a Tuesday evening with a friend for her first time. She is a bit of an expert on Persian food and she couldn’t speak highly enough about Koocha Mezze Bar. I will always recommend this restaurant and recommend it highly.
