Koh Thai Tapas


Koh Thai Tapas was born out of frustration in Dorset in 2009, breaking Thai eating conventions as the first to offer authentic Thai food, cooked by native Thai chefs, but served in a European-style of tapas dining for the sociable and the adventurous! A place where the holy flavours of Thai cuisine could be shared and sampled tapas-style with fiery cocktails, far-flung beers and world-class music. Koh became a place for everyone to eat and enjoy. A place at once authentic, beautiful, unpretentious, relaxed and refined.

Located on the iconic Clifton Triangle, Koh Bristol boasts a 100+ cover restaurant and a delightful alfresco area with cocktail bar, along with coffees or takeaway for the comfort of Koh at home. Koh is also open during the day serving a delightful £12 Light Lunch menu, or if you’ve got big plans for the evening, they now serve their ‘Pre-Whatever-Else-You’re-Doing-Later’ menu until 6:30pm, with two delicious courses for £14. The perfect venue to blend Thai fretwork, statues and murals with Victorian feature windows, intricate coving and exposed brickwork.

The bohemian neighbourhood of Clifton proved the ideal location to launch our next in the Koh family. The restaurant still retains the energy of that first breakthrough, rippling between the mellow golds, lush greens and flame-hued woods with striking murals by artist Slam Daniels.

If you are popping in for a taste of Thai, the 24 Hour Ribs come highly recommended, as does Koh’s Own Chicken Satay. For a main, you can’t go wrong with the Roast Duck Curry – tender duck served in a red curry sauce, beautifully contrasted with fresh fruity notes of pineapple, cherry tomato and grapes. For those with milder preferences, the Yellow Curry is a great alternative with your choice of filling but just as packed with rich flavours.

On the carefully crafted cocktail menu, the favourites include a fruity gin-based Summer Daze with lime, passionfruit and Midori Melon liqueur or a long vodka-based drink: the Koh Samui Cooler. If none of the beautifully presented cocktails on the menu take your fancy, ask the experienced bartenders to mix up your own bespoke beverage. There’s also a selection of beer, cider and wine to complement your food.
