These are the best kebab houses in the UK - did your favourite win?
They're a staple of late night, post-pub cuisine but which kebab houses are the best in the UK?
The winners of the annual British Kebab Awards have been announced this week at a ceremony in London.
The 16 award categories included Booker Makro’s Chef of the Year, Ace4Kebabs Kebab Van of the Year, Just Eat Best Delivery, and eight regional awards, which recognised the best kebab restaurants across the UK.
Thousands of members of the public voted for the 150 finalists to face the judges, who included the Labour MP Carolyn Harris, Conservative MP David Warburton, journalist, Ash Sarkar, and Cobra Beer sales director, Samson Sohail.
Ibrahim Dogus, Lambeth-based restaurateur and founder of the Kebab Awards said, “The kebab is an unsung cornerstone of high streets across the country, and the simply superb quality of this year’s entries shows that British small businesses can more than compete on a world stage of cuisine.
"What is also just as important is that we must not let Brexit hinder the UK’s flourishing restaurant and takeaway industries, which employ so many people often from migrant backgrounds.”
The British Kebab Awards is the only one of its kind to recognise the British kebab industry, which supports 200,000 jobs across restaurants, suppliers and the food industry.
