It was the massive queues that alerted us this place, even though there were at least 20 customers in front of us we were soon being served , What a wonderful find, delicious bread wraps , the lamb kofta & salad was fantastic, the grilled...chicken wrap looked good too, I was informed it was also delicious. I wish I lived closer I’d be eating here regularly. Looking forward to returning to Bristol just for the wraps !More

When I saw some people walking and eating what looked like an amazing shawarma, I asked them where they got it from. I am so glad I did! It wasn't shawarma after all, but I wasn't disappointed. The salad alone would have made a delicious...meal in its own right, wrapped in a home made tandoor cooked naan bread. The colours of the salad with the purple cabbage, the reds and greens, oh the delights! Tahini sauce, incredible chilli sauce, mint yogurt cucumber sauce and delicious dark, sweet pickle combined to make one of the most delicious meals I have ever had. Seriously brilliant food. I don't think it matters what you choose to put in with that combination of salads and sauces because it's delicious in its own right and any vegan would be happy with a box of their gorgeous cous cous piled with salad and sauces. Any meat eater would be delighted with their amazing koftas. I don't have enough words to describe how happy I was to find such a marvellous establishment. And the staff are lovely too! Thanks guys!More

This place goes from strength to strength despite inevitable and unavoidable price increases. We’ve been having kebab night on a Thursday for longer than I wish to remember! 😂 Coming to Bristol for a wrap from Matinas is always the best! From the moment you...order to the moment you take your first bite, the whole experience is fabulous! Standing watching the person in front getting their chicken wrap, knowing yours is next! There is no feeling like it if you know what is coming and they never forget that mine is extra spicy! 😋 Everyone is so friendly and do their best to give you the most enjoyable experience when you order from Matinas and they never forget a treat for your dog! As ever guys, thank you so much and see you again in September 😘More

I came by today on the way to a late appointment, about 4,15 pm. I was pleased to see that Matina was still open. I bought the lamb wrap with all the other bits. I could not eat it until much later, so they wrapped...it up carefully for me. Very good indeed. Next time i will try something elseMore

Having been in Spain for the winter all I wanted when I got back is a kebab from Martina!! These are just the best wraps and boxes served by the most friendly people you could wish to meet. The 2500km drive was so worth it...when I ordered my wrap today. We always get a wrap each for lunch and a box with couscous for dinner. We only manage to visit a couple of times a year and this is always our first stop! Just the best food which we max out while we are in Bristol. Extra spicy for me! Thanks guys 😁🍢🌶More

Do not be put off by the long queue. The line moves quickly. The men working are friendly, efficient, funny and kind. Matina is a walk up counter where you can purchase Middle Eastern grilled meat and toppings. The majority of folks seem to order...their filling of choice to be placed inside of the fresh flat bread (naan) wrap...you can also order the fillings to be placed on seasoned couscous or if your are in need of gluten-free...no worries, they will place your fillings on top of rice. Vegetarian? They have a nice feta waiting for you. Want it spicy? They have you covered...want no spicy, no problem. The food at Matina was fresh and delicious. I would absolutely eat here again.More

Lip smackingly delicious. Fresh flavoursome fillings, chicken and halloumi perfectly cooked in a soft fluffy naan. The only disappointment is that they aren’t open of an evening.
