Good Vegetarian Options
*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.

Incredible food, atmosphere, sat by the window for maximum ambience. Generous portion sizes and every member of staff was super friendly. Highly recommend to anyone vegan or carnivorous!

We decided to have a meal before attending a gig in Bristol and the reviews for Koocha MB made it sound ideal. Turns out the reviews were right, the food, atmosphere and service were all spot on, couldn't have been better in fact. I would highly recommend a visit, we certainly hope to get back there again. It was a faultless and the food was delicious, although I would say it is quite small once you are inside and seated, so if you are a clumsy 6' 2" person like me you might struggle a wee bit space wise. Not Mezze MB's fault though, the staff we all first rate and welcoming, just me.

Absolutely outstanding tasty vegan food, the mezzo selection was varied and delicious. The serving bowls and presentation really lovely. Loved the cocktails and gin selection.
Everyone thought the desserts amazing - particularly the baklava.
A really lovely meal - definitely come again with some really friendly staff.

Lovely mezze bar with great service from lovely staff. The food is delicious and served in really pretty bowls. The decor is beautiful and relaxing and the tables nicely spaced. My only low point would be that it's pretty noisy. The music could probably come down a bit to stop people from having to raise voices. Other than that it's a brilliant place and I'll be going again.

We had such a great time at Koocha! We were celebrating our friends upcoming wedding for lunch. The service was outstanding, the lady who served us was warm and attentive and took the time to ask us questions and didn't make us feel bad for the amount of food we were ordering! The dishes were out of this world and everything was delicious. Thank you for such a good experience :)

We love going to Koocha. The food is delicious & the staff are friendly & welcoming. There’s not a lot of option when it comes to dining out as a vegetarian where live so it’s lush to have such a variety of lush food

What a delight to spend an evening at such an outstanding restaurant. The choice was excellent and all very tasty, well presented and served with charm. Plus, the cocktails are wonderful! It's also very relaxing to know we can choose anything from the menu without compromising the flavour.

Amazing vegan brunch. My friends and I had a lovely time and the service was great and prompt refilling our Prosecco. So nice to go somewhere with my non-vegan friends and them all enjoy their vegan food.

Our food took 45 mins to arrive, and when it did some dishes were almost cold. All the food came together - this wasn't explained at the start, nor was any helpful guidance given as to quantities (we ended up over ordering). Our initial waiter came across as either very shy or not bothered.
After the food problems were pointed out, a different member of the waiting staff dealt with it well, getting quick - and hot - replacements for the cold dishes, and offering a discount off the bill at the end.
Some of the dishes were good, eg the cauliflower, the veggie fritters, the fries and the beetroot hummus, but others were weak - the pasta and the falafel burger (blue bun, really?) particularly.
It was a shame - there were some good aspects, the pricing isn't exorbitant, and we really wanted to like it, but overall it really wasn't a great experience.
