Nice welcome and very pleasant and polite staff. However, after placing our orders the waitress came back to tell us one of the items ordered was not available as it had to be marinated over night. One wonders why this could not have been stated...More

We will return to Kookoo, which is now run by chef Moss. As I was having trouble choosing between the kebabs we took up the offer of a mixed platter. The chicken was good and the lamb selection, not my normal choice, was delishous not...More

Moh and Christine obviously have a passion for their business. We found Kookoo on the look out for a halal Persian offering whilst down from London for the day visiting Concorde at Aerospace Bristol. I think I'd summarise the entire experience as going for dinner...More

Kookootoo is a Persian restaurant which serves authentic, home cooked food in generous portions and for a reasonable price. The chef-owner, Moh Narimani, recently won 'best restaurant' in the MTM Awards. Moh started out cooking on demand and when his mailing list reached 200 people, he opened his own place. He has fulfilled his dream of introducing Persian food to Bristol both to provide food from home for Bristol's Iranian community and to invite everyone to enjoy the fragrant, high quality and beautfully presented dishes. Bristol and beyond have welcomed this addition to its diverse foodie community as is clear from the customer reviews on Tripadvisor and Facebook. Many report on the friendly atmosphere and beautiful decor. Kookootoo is expanding its take away and off-site catering services.
