*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.

My chickpea and spinach mezze hardly contained any spinach, so was extremely disappointing. The noise level is loud and it was hard to hear my companion. Most worryingly, no attempts at social distancing: Bristol currently has a very high rate of Covid. I did not feel safe.

Incredible food, brilliant service, a really love place. Coffee at the end wasn't great but my cocktail was mind-blowing! We are both a little deaf and it was quite loud. I would definitely go again and recommend.

The food was innovative and good value for money. We were received with warmth and an inviting atmosphere. Only fault was we waited fairly long to order drinks/food/the bill but this could also be a testament to how popular the restaurant is, as it was very busy (which was great to see!) Overally, I would thoroughly recommend.

Really good to be able to have anything on the menu in a Persian style restaurant as non-meat eaters. All the food was really tasty, and nice cocktails too. Decor and mural outside look great, all the staff were very friendly.

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.

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
