Bristol’s historic Old City, particularly around St Nick’s Market, is a great spot for finding cheap eats in the city. But the area’s newest joint, Koottaan, is offering up some of the most delicious bargain curries in Bristol.
Koottaan opened last weekend (March 29) and has already caught our eye. Specialising in Indian street food – particularly that of the Kerala region – you’ll find at simple yet satisfying selection on the menu. Grab Koottaan’s special chicken biriyani for just £7! Otherwise there’s a choice of meat or vegetable curries, all for £6.50. For something more handheld, pick up a hot wrap for £6.
Perfect for this fast paced area of Bristol, Koottaan makes a great stop if you’re looking to grab something quick and to eat on-the-go. There are also high tables and stools for those looking to dine in, however. Reflecting the Malabari, French and Arabian influence on the Kerala region, this Indian street food spot is also distinct among the Old City’s diverse food offerings.
For now, the Indian restaurant is calling this a soft launch, with know specific opening hours as of yet. However, we expect these official hours to be announced soon. Perhaps a more extensive menu too, although we’ll happily accept what we’re currently given!
Koottaan comes to Bristol from the team behind Mint & Mustard and Chai Street restaurants in Cardiff, as well as the award-winning Mattancherry restaurants in Cardiff and Taunton. “We’re so delighted to be opening our doors in what is such a famous area for independent businesses, vibrant street culture and flavours from around the globe,” said Koottaan on Facebook.
