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

So glad we gave this place a try as it is a bright, friendly independent restaurant serving a really interesting menu. Lovely Persian food, beautifully prepared and served with real care. Will definitely be back.

Ate here with a group of friends on a Sunday afternoon. The food was delicious and couldn’t be faulted. Unfortunately the service was very slow. The waiter clearly had a group of friends also in the restaurant and regularly stopped to chat to them. He...More

There's nowhere else like this in Bristol. Lovely place: quiet atmosphere, delicious food, big portions, friendly service. What more could you want? Recipes are original (for me anyway), the lamb is succulent and well-seasoned, the dal is better than in most indian restaurants, the mezes...More

Really nice food and atmosphere. Persian restaurant on Filton avenue, and probably its busiest sit down place on this street. You must go in and try this place! Food is to die for.

Lovely place 👍with lovely food just took quite a while to arrive but all in all worth the wait. Also very big kabab 🍡dishes. Me and a friend shared two and I think one would've been big enough for the both of us! 😂

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.
