Great vegan fast food - Edit

Just took a slight detour whilst visiting Bristol to check this place out and so glad I did. Was naturally drawn to the tofish and chips, but there was so much else on the menu I'd like to have tried. So nice to go to a chippy, and not only not bother about what the chips are fried in/with, but to know you have something to go with it. Delicious crunchy batter round tofu + sheet of nori, with perfect chips all for £5. Friendly staff too. Think I may need to make more detours in future and sample the whole menu. This place is a real treasure.

Pros: Loads of choice, Reasonable price, Friendly staff

Cons: It's not close enough to where I live!

Great food and friendly staff ! - Edit

Awesome place for fast food! I was only in Bristol for a short stay and drove across the city to try the Tofish and it was awesome. The owner and staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended!

Incredible niche - Edit

I would never have believed that an all vegan fish and chip shop miles from the centre of Bristol could have survived. How wrong I was. This place provides food like no other. True hearty food, that might not be super good for you, but tastes great and is cruelty free. Top tip: try the battered sausage!

Pros: Unique, Great staff, Part of the community

Cons: Currently do not deliver

Delicious vegan tofish - Edit

I’ve had takeaway from here about five times and usually get tofish and chips, which are delicious! Although the portion of chips isn’t quite as big as you’d get from a regular chippy, there is still plenty there for a filling meal and the potatoes are organic. Everything is cooked perfectly, and worth every penny!

A Must Eat - Edit

This place is amazing. If you love some takeaway and junk food on occasion then you'll love it here. Having never had fish from a traditional shop, I was desperate to try the tofish and chips here. It's reasonably priced, the curry sauce was delicious and all my vegan chip shop dreams are alive. They also sell battered sausage, stir fries and fried chicken if you're after that, but I was far too excited about the tofish. It was rather busy (though it is a chip shop on a friday night), but the staff were lovely and attentive and service was quick. My only regret is not getting the tartar sauce.
I'll definitely be going here again!

Pros: Proper chips, Reasonably priced, Friendly staff

not a fan - Edit

I went for their pre-opening event. I won't be back. It was too greasy... and I love grease. The fake fish tasted like the fried sausage. I didn't love it.

Cons: greasy

The best fast food I've had in years - Edit

Matter really is a great place, I had the 'Tofish' and chips, as well as jackfruit nuggets. All really nice, good portions and price. It reminded me of my childhood eating at the local chip shop. Very highly recommended!

Pros: Unique vegan fast food, Great selection, Reasonably priced

Cons: Long wait time as it's popular

Absolutely worth a massive detour for! - Edit

Had read about this place online and was driving past Bristol so decided to call in; so glad I did. Super friendly helpful staff and oh so much choice. As a gluten free vegan, I'm just not used to having practically a whole menu to peruse; I possibly did a little dance of joy! The tofish was great and the homemade tartare sauce wow! It sounds silly but the chips tasted clean- totally yummy and naughty but- clean! Over excited clearly as words are failing me!

Pros: Exciting takeaway experience , Great food and service, Did I mention the choice!!!! 😊

Ridiculously good vegan chippy. - Edit

Been here a whole load of times since it opened. The owner is a really lovely guy, the food is absolutely amazing and I couldn't recommend it enough.
Have had the to-fish and chips which is banging but the sausage in batter is my favourite. Chips are proper chippy chips too.
Have taken a number of omnis for dinner there and they've given the chips, tofish, sausage in batter, stir-frys and curry sauce amazingly positive reviews to me.
Stop reading this and go and eat at Matter! You'll love it!

Pros: Delicious proper chippy chips, Super friendly service, Not stupidly expensive

Cons: Fishponds isn't central (Doesn't matter for us), None, None

Yum - amazing vegan chippy! - Edit

I love this place - every time I've had takeaway from here it's been amazing. The chips are proper chip-shop chips, the tofish and battered sausages are great, and the Chinese style dishes are amazing - I recently had the chilli to-beef and I think it's probably going to be an all-time favourite of mine. It was amazing!

Pros: Amazing range of vegan takeaway food, Good value

Cons: Nothing!

Incredible, amazing, gorgeous, juicy food!! - Edit

We have just eaten the most delicious healthy colourful fast food. The Tofish is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with just the right texture and seasoning. The Vegetable Tempura are crunchy and tasty with a surprise selection of butternut squash, cauliflower and mushroom veggies. So yummy. Pea fritters amazing! Sweet and sour sauce delectable (and made with only for ingredients). Tartare sauce deliciously home made. We wanted to have the banana fritters but had no room. We would drive a long way to come here. The menu has so many wholesome organic foods. They even have raw chocolate and scrummy brownies.

Please please please check out this amazing place. We're sure there must be a food magician working here.

This is the dawn of a new era in amazing vegan organic cuisine. Fast, light, tasty, juicy, fulfilling, kind to animals and the environment. We love it!! We can't wait to return!!!

Pros: organic food, happy service, fresh vegetables, interesting recipes

Bristols one and only 100% vegan takeaway.... and then some! - Edit

The best Vegan takeaway ever in my view. Dedicated staff, organic, vegan, delicious batter, the tofish and chips are nothing less than sensational. Curry sauce so tasty.... curries, sweet and sour dishes, stir fries, jumbo vegan sausages, raw cheesecakes, banana fritters..... and much more. Only Himalayan salt used and homemade vinegar, sauerkraut, kimchi

Pros: all vegan, delicious, excellent prices

Cons: none

Amazing "fish" and chippy! - Edit

Place was packed (a good thing of course) and really good atmosphere. We had a bit of everything (tofish, falafel, tempura, purple haze, battered sausage and vegetable curry) and all of it was amazing! This will now be our go-to takeaway, would recommend to vegans, veggies and everyone else! Five stars! Great taste, good service, good value for money, healthy but also great taste.

Cons: there isn't one in south Bristol

Meat-eater loving Tofish & Chips!!! - Edit

I'm a meat eater in a big way!

However the wife is Vegan and started me on plant base diet for health ect

But today I had Tofish & Chips and I was licking the plate! The best "fish & chips" I have had in England and Ireland (I'm South African, 16 years in Ireland and 8 months UK), so believe me this is good food!

The taste is great and you wouldn't know the difference!

I might just be converted ?
