The best kebabs in Wales are made by Mezza Luna in Cardiff, British Kebab Awards judges decided.
A total of 10 kebab outlets had been shortlisted for Best Kebab House in Wales and Mezza Luna took 6th spot in the national league table as well as carving off the top in Wales.
Mezza Luna was up against stiff competition from Pizza Choice in Cardiff, Swansea’s Pepinos Pizza and Awa Grill House, Newport’s New Best Kebab, Izmir Turkish & Greek Restaurant in Barry, Rhos Kebab and Pizza House in Rhos, Yummies in Ammanford as well as Wales Kebab and Sam’s Grill House both located in Abertridwr.
This year’s shortlisted kofte kings were competing for prizes in 15 categories from Best Kebab Van to Best Newcomer and Best Fine Dining ahead of the fifth annual awards ceremony.
Members of the public were invited to nominate their favourite kebab shops. These were whittled down to a shortlist based on the number of public votes received with bonus points for nominations from MPs.
The winners were crowned after a final round of judging by the British Kebab Awards judges including Shadow Economic Secretary Jonathan Reynolds and fellow MP Nadhim Zahawi. The number of #BritishKebabAwards tweets of support that a contender got was also taken into account.
The British Kebab Awards was established by the Centre for Turkey Studies (CEFTUS) and its founder Ibrahim Dogus in 2013. CEFTUS is a non-profit organisation which works to build bridges between Turkey and the UK, and between Turkish, Kurdish and Cypriot communities.
