*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.

    Very good food. Restaurant pleasant but a bit noisy. Serving staff very pleasant. Our two vegetarians were very pleased as they could have eaten anything on the menu.

    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.

    We were given the table by the window which was fine (good view of the street). Lots of vegan choices on the menu, service was good and the food very tasty. Will definitely be back soon.

    We were both looking forward to eating at Koocha and they didn’t disappoint. The clever combination of flavours we had never tried together, left us wondering which to choose as we couldn’t possibly eat them all 😬 Our waitress’s recommendations were spot on and our meal was delicious. My friend is now convinced she does like roasted beetroot with burnt orange after all, especially served on top of pistachio cream! Great to have staff that listen to diners, know their menu and encourage them to explore. Service was attentive but not intrusive, very tuned in, asking whether the open window was okay once we got got our food. Needless to say, we will be back. Looking forward to a bottomless brunch perhaps. Bargain at £28!!

    Booked a table at Koocha as I was with vegan friends living outside Bristol who always struggle to find anything decent to eat in most restaurants. They were over the moon to be able to choose any dish from the menu, everything we had ordered was delicious and staff were fantastic. I would highly recommend the kotlet kebab and the cocktails!

    Lovely staff who were accommodating to the fact we were running late. Big menu with lots of choice. I went for the fried chicken open shawarma and garlic fries which were both delicious and the portion sizes were very generous. I also had a delicious mocktail. All in all, lovely dining experience. Will definitely be back!

    We thought we were buying proper mint tea like it's made in North Africa or in arab countries (so lots of mint and sugar) but instead it was just insipid. Most of the mezze lack flavour (apart from the skewers). The main are far too hot. But the reason we won't be coming back is that we really can't stand the idea of sitting on those filthy-looking chairs again. We're sorry but they're just so off-putting. You should definitely replace them with washable ones. We always need to wash our clothes immediately after.

    Lovely venue, nice food good atmosphere unfortunately dampened by a breach of the discrimination act when they refused to accept the legal tender of my hard earned cash, card only they say, I informed them of my preferred way to pay but they just gave excuses and this made my daughter feel very uncomfortable and she got her phone out and paid for the meal.
