The Waterloo takeaway also reached the shortlist back in 2016 but missed out on the prize.

The British Kebab Awards are organised by Ibrahim Dogus, local restaurateur, newspaper publisher, Labour councillor and this year's Deputy Mayor of Lambeth.

Dogus devised the awards to celebrate the kebab trade's contribution to the UK economy.

The 2019 winners will be announced at a £276-a-head ceremony on Monday 18 March at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.

The kebab awards have become a regular fixture on the political and media calendar, drawing VIP guests as well as endorsements from both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.
