It was the British Kebab Awards last night and not one Manchester shop made the cut


The annual British Kebab Awards took place last night and the UK's most loved takeaways were all up for awards, obviously.

Categories included 'Best Kebab Restaurant in London', 'Best Newcomer Restaurant', and 'fine dining' – and there's even an award for 'Best Kebab Van', among many others.

Basically, Fans of their friendly neighbourhood kebab takeaways and restaurants can claim they truly do have Britain’s best kebab takeaway and restaurant by voting for them in the British Kebab Awards.


I could legitimately talk about kebabs all day, but I'm just going to get into the winners for you (take note that I've removed the massive list of London-only awards, because kebabs down south are rank and nobody cares about that list).

Founder of the British Kebab Awards, Ibrahim Dogus, said: "The kebab has firmly established itself as a Great British favourite, and this year's shortlist demonstrates its ever-greater diversity, with a wider range of variations than ever before!

"From twists on the classics, to new vegan varieties, we are proud to celebrate one of the nation's best loved industries as it continues to grow in new and exciting ways."


Unfortunately, Manchester didn't seem to make the cut this year, so we're going to attach ourselves to 'I Am Doner' in Leeds for picking up a Highly Commended award.

And if anyone from the British Kebab Awards wants to visit Cafe Istanbul, Alif Grill, Topkapi, or any other kebab staples in Manchester before next year, that would be much appreciated. Cheers.
