We were a party of six booked for a pre-theatre meal. The informal atmosphere was perfect and the service was good. We had chicken tagine, skewered mixed grill, fish curry & fish cakes followed by Persian Love Cake and a variety of teas & coffees including Berber coffee and Persian Black Cardamom Tea. The food is North African/Lebanese/Middle Eastern with... More

This is some of the most amazing food I've ever had, anywhere, ever. It is always brilliantly cooked, balanced and well flavoured. I've only had one thing here that was bad (or good by any other standard) and that was a lemon and ginger drink that was almost to gingery to drink. Everything else has been 5*.

Went pre Tobacco Factory Show (recomend that you book when its TF season), it was packed but no problems with service. We just had some marinated olives to keep us going, they were very good quality, not bitter but large and tasty. Main courses from the 'Specials' included a hake dish and a mutton dish both of which were perfectly... More

I've lived in Bristol nearly 10 years and only frequented Souk Kitchen today, which is shocking given how amazing the food was! The service (as commented on by others) was fine, not overly friendly but not particularly rude either - food arrived on time and was delicious so no complaints from us. Will definitely be going back!

I love mediterranean food and I went there for a friend's birthday. To be honest, the service was really poor and not friendly at all. The waitress did not even look at us in the eyes once! The atmosphere is ok but nothing exceptionnal. The food is interesting, not bad, but they are trying to hard to be fancy/creative -... More

We visited the Souk Kitchen to celebrate a birthday, and were lucky enough to get a reservation at short notice. We enjoyed a mezze starter for two which included a wide variety of dips and snacks with flat breads, which complemented a bottle of house red wine. For our main course, we each enjoyed the Anatolian sweet sour lamb Yasni,... More

A modern clean restaurant with friendly staff. A great menu with fresh & different food. A great selection of veggie options available. I can't wait to visit again!

We've been to Souk Kitchen twice, now. The first time was so good that I didn't quite believe it, so I was interested to see how they performed on the second visit. Brilliantly was the answer. We shared starters, which included terrific chicken livers, and a lovely octopus salad. Mains included excellent kofta and a superb duck dish. The service... More

Went here for breakfast restaurant was empty but asked if we had a reservation which we didn't. Grumpily showed us to a table. Ordered our food a member of our group wanted mushrooms instead of bacon on her eggs which he very rudely made a fuss about but eventually decided he could honour the request. A Waitress brought our drinks... More

Souk kitchen is pretty local to my partner and I, but I've always been pretty wary of Middle Eastern restaurants as they can be pretty hit and miss in my experience. But after hearing much raving about this place we thought we'd check it ou for lunch. Well, what can I say? We ordered courgette fritters which came with a... More
