*PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE RELOCATED* our previous location at 10 Zetland Road has now closed, we can now be found 100m around the corner at 39 Gloucester Road, BS7 8AD

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.

Food and service were absolutely excellent as always. You couldn't tell they had been given such short notice to open up again after lockdown! Also, great disco playlist-we had a perfect evening!! Thank you to everyone at Koocha.

The food was absolutely delicious. Definitely recommend the doner kebab.

Very reasonably priced for a group to eat.

My only negatives, which are not related to the food. The seating it really uncomfortable and the restaurant is chilly. A few people had their coats on (including Me).

That aside, I would still go again!

The mezze was packed with natural flavour and presented with pretty edible flowers. There was a good choice for coeliacs on the menu (gluten free breads would be even better) and the alcohol list offered variety. The music was relaxing but upbeat (think lazy afternoons in Ibiza)! We loved it & will be back post Covid-19 lockdown.

Wonderful food and atmosphere. Girl serving us was lovely, although took a little while to order our drinks when we first sat down. Will most certainly be visiting again after lockdown #2!

The food is always delicious and never disappoints. The quality and portion sizes are amazing. Unfortunately on this occasion, the service was a big let down . We were rushed throughout and told that we had to leave before we could even order desserts. Our table had been booked for another party but nobody mentions this to us upon booking or on arrival. Disappointing!

As restaurants go this place was fairly small but had a nice atmosphere. Food was nice and will certainly need to return to try more of the menu. Staff were nice and not pushy. Good mood music to eat too and some tunes I hadn’t heard for a while. Suited my wife and I as it was our anniversary.

Food was so yummy, big portions and very filling! Place was clean and very busy, nice atmosphere.
Unfortunately a male customer became extremely ill during our time and I thought the staff handled it extremely well and professionally. I will definitely be returning.

The food and staff are good, but its hard to enjoy because the tables are too close together and you don't feel you are in a covid secure environment, very small and it's totally unpleasant to be timed for no even two hours before a proper welcome to the business. It should be as long as you are consuming not to be disturb but the food is really good so its worth it despite the place not to be the same level as its food.

In terms of our covid response we feel we have made all the right moves - every line of government guidelines has been followed. Details taken, Menus Sanitised, Regular toilet checks, staff wearing masks, 1m min social distancing etc. If you would like to discuss further please shoot us over an email. Rowan

Food was great. Service good. Unfortunately, we were seated by the door which didn't automatically close fully so we had to keep getting up to close it or sit in a draught.

Responded on October 20, 2020

Sorry about the door Carol, I know that must have been irritating! You visited on our opening night so unfortunately we were not aware the door would cause such an annoying draught. (Its fixed now). Glad you enjoyed out food and service anyway though! Hopefully see you lot again soon! Rowan - Manager
