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.

    Probably one of the best vegan places I’ve been to! Everything was so yum! Our favourite was the saffron and pomegranate cheesecake!

    Myself and my friend had the most outstanding Sunday lunch. It was superb and the service from the team was friendly and the best I’ve ever had in Bristol. Definitely my number 1 choice for their Sunday Lunch and we’ll be back very soon. Big thank you

    Delicious and friendly! Cute date night/girls night decor. Just what two jet-lagged veggie San Franciscans needed at a quick Bristol stop in. Portions were generous and everything tasted great. We loved the Kookoo, Doner, and Cucumber dishes. Server was friendly and cared about how we liked the food. The only improvement would be to not have the food come out all at once - it was a bit overwhelming. But, overall, a really nice chill vibe.

    Unfortunately all of our dishes were flavourless. This is very disappointing considering the price and also considering that we have been before and last time we thought that the food was amazing!

    We've long been big fans of Koocha. I've never been here during the week or on a Saturday and had anything other than amazing food and service. We came in for our second Sunday roast this weekend. The big issue we had the first time we had the roast was that the food came quickly but was cold by the time it arrived with us. This time round we waited a long time to have our drinks order taken, but our food came out in a reasonable time frame and was hot. We were very happy with the food until it turned out about 5 minutes into eating that the servers had given the food meant for the table next to us. Needless to say, this was a little uncomfortable and the other table left having been waiting for a long time. I actually assumed they'd finished by the time we sat down given how little attention they were getting from the servers! I would have done exactly the same thing if I was in their position. In wanting to write a fair review, I can't overlook how good the food was. An absolutely stunning veggie roast. The problem seems to be front of house. I appreciate that there was a new employee being shown the ropes that day, but there were plenty of other staff milling around. Something you really notice when you're waiting a long time for drinks. I really don't understand how the service during weekdays is so much better when they only serve the roast on Sundays! I'll definitely give Koocha's roast another shot on a Sunday, I just hope they get on top of their general organisation.

    Time for my annual "see if the service has improved at Koocha trip" - spoilers, it hasn't. Arrived a bit early for my booking, promptly ignored for 20 minutes after being seated, finally get a drink, they gave me the wrong beer but it was close enough. A couple arrived and sat next to us at this point and after another 20 minutes seemed annoyed themselves about being ignored. They then received what I can only assume was our food ten minutes later. At the hour point I went to go and ask staff as no one had bothered to check on our empty glasses that had been sat on our table (which was in the front of the windows and in eyeline of the bar). They went and asked the chef and came back and apologised and said it would be out soon. All of this when there isn't even an option for the customer for food on a Sunday. It's a roast, that's the option. This is my third attempt since it moved from Zetland road, I walked out without eating and I will never be going back.

    The best vegan roast in Bristol with a Juicy Marbles Wellington and a Yorkshire pudding too! Crispy roast potatoes and lots of other lovely veg! Not much room for pudding but couldn't resist sharing the pistachio and marshmallow cheesecake - it was amazing! Friendly service - thanks Amara! We will be back - highly recommended!

    Came for my wife’s birthday and dived into the Mezze menu. It was completely fantastic, literally everything was amazing and all the plates joined the clean plate club. The staff even gave my wife a free dessert for her birthday which was a lush touch. Many thanks to the kitchen and to our server Alisha for being amazing.

    Loved the restaurant! Hadn’t realised when I booked that it was vegetarian but was thrilled by all the choices! Excellent service and good mix of options for different budgets. Loved the Mojito, the Mocktails were also great. Went for a birthday celebration, it felt very special! Would 100% recommend and will definitely go again.

    Such delicious food and wonderful cocktails . Amazing range of choice and beautiful fresh food. I would eat here twice a week if I could! It was very noisy when we arrived but it was only one group who were making it, so as soon as they left it was easier to talk and they were having such fun, their laughter was infectious! Looking forward to coming back.

    First time visitors to any type of vegan establishment and we’re so pleased that we chose Koocha Mezza Bar in Bristol . We booked a table on Sunday so they were only serving the Koocha Roast dinner but boy what a dinner !! We never leave reviews or even personally rate places 10/10 but we felt that we just had to leave a review for the whole dining experience we enjoyed. The food was just AMAZING !! could not fault it whatsoever , it was incredibly tasty , beautifully presented and a very generous size. The restaurant was impeccably clean and welcoming and the staff were very very friendly, welcoming and couldn’t do enough to make our stay as enjoyable and relaxing as they could. We are not vegans but following our visit to Koocha we doubt that we will be having a “ meat “ based roast dinner again. We plan to return with family to try the Mezze menu in the very near future Thank you too all there for a thoroughly enjoyable and tasty experience
