Britain’s best takeaways have been crowned - but did yours make the cut?
Whether you love fish and chips on a Friday night, or can’t help but order in a curry every Saturday - now the best takeaway in the country has been revealed.
And it’s good news if you live in Trowbridge as Wiltshire-based Mexican restaurant Nacho Cheese topped the list.
The takeaway impressed the judging panel by providing great food, as well as catering well to customers’ dietary needs.
Owner Lorraine Priestly - who has coeliac disease - has made sure her restaurant has a whole host of gluten-free offerings.
She also offers vegan, vegetarian and dairy-free dishes, alongside meaty and cheesy ones, while its packaging is compostable and biodegradable.
Following their big win, Lorraine said: “It is so important to us to offer exceptional service and food, as well as catering to customers’ ever-evolving dietary needs, and so to have been recognised for this is amazing!
"We would like to say a huge thank you to our staff for their hard work, as well as our loyal customers, as we couldn’t have got here without them. We are so pleased and can’t wait to continue to have a positive impact on the takeaway industry.”
The nominees of the British Takeaway Awards - sponsored by Just Eat - are first considered with a public vote, while a judging panel, written submissions and mystery shopping visits helped to crown the winners.
But Nacho Cheese wasn’t the only restaurant to come out on top, as other categories such as ‘game changer’, ‘best takeaway delivery driver’ and ‘best chef’ were also crowned, as well as regional winners.
