Kebab shop owner Murat Kaya said: "It's great to be in final - this is our second final.

"Hopefully this time with the support of our customers we will win that award."

Wellingborough Kebab House is one of just three kebab eateries to represent Northamptonshire at the finals.

Truva Charcoal Grill & Bar, in Towcester, is up for the 'Best Kebab Restaurant Regional' award.

And Alacati Grill - Turkish & Mediterranean Cuisine, in Daventry, will compete for the 'Best Newcomer Restaurant in London/Outside London' award.

Ibrahim Dogus, founder of the British Kebab Awards and director of the recently formed Kebab Alliance, said: “Kebab eateries are a key part of the local community and it’s great to see so many entries at the end of a year that has tested every business operating in the hospitality sector.

"Getting to the shortlist is a real achievement given the competition across the country and all outlets should be rightly proud.

"We wish all finalists the best of luck.”
