Persian cuisine is still relatively unknown and this restaurant proves that we have a hidden jewel that makes the trip to Filton Avenue well worth it. The tender kebabs were delicious and the rice was cooked to perfection. What's more, the service is warm and...More

Honestly the best fish dish I have ever tasted! A reasonable wait for freshly prepared sea bream with suble pomegranate, walnut and other Persian flavours. Inexpensive as well.

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.
