*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.

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.

Outstanding food, went for 8 different mezzes, each was packed with flavour and very filling. A taste sensation, waiting staff friendly. Waiting time for food good. Excellent cocktails overall a very satisfying experience. Would highly recommend.

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.

The food here is amazing and you won’t be disappointed, whether you’re vegan or not. The staff are polite and friendly and the food arrived promptly and beautifully freshly cooked.
The ambience is relaxed and friendly. There is a nice buzz about the place, but it was quiet and relaxing.
I’ve eaten out in Bristol a lot and this is the best so far.

We had the most wonderful service and food! Unfortunately we could literally barely hear eachother though, not sure if more soft furnishings are needed or if it was just majorly busy but it was so hard to hold a conversation :( food was incredible though abs your staff are awesome!

Had a really good time at Koocha!
We shared 8 delicious mezze plates and flatbread between 3 and walked away very happy.
They have a lot of different dishes to choose from, everything packed full with flavour.
Would also like to mention the decor is super cute!
One of the best vegan places I've been in Bristol, would definitely recommend!

I had the Koftas on jasmine rice whilst my wife hade a selection of four mezzes, the food was outstanding, beautifully presented and oh so tasty.
The desserts were gorgeous, I had the Turkish delight chocolate brownie and my wife had the Baklava, yummy only goes so far in describing what we’re simply sensational desserts, the brownie was the best I’ve ever eaten.
The staff were lovely, attentive but not pushy, we felt looked after and the food arrived swiftly, the decor and atmosphere in Koocha was lovely.
We look forward to returning there soon.

The tastiest vegan food I’ve eaten for some time. Little bowls of scrumptious delights in the small plates selection and the seitan doner kebab was delicious.
Highly recommend.
