Two Glasgow businesses have reached the finals for next year’s prestigious British Kebab Awards.

A huge volume of entries has been whittled down by judges who have now revealed Shawarma King on King Street and Doner Shack at Silverburn are both in the running to be crowned the Best Kebab House in Scotland.

Teams from both restaurants will be invited to attend a glitzy ceremony at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London on Tuesday, February 28 where this year's winner will be announced.

Shawarma King will be looking to retain their title after scooping the award last year while newcomers Doner Shack will no doubt be celebrating a nomination after just two months in business.

Ibrahim Dogus, founder of the British Kebab Awards and Director of the 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.”

Also attending the awards, run in association with JUST EAT and supported by the Kebab Alliance, will be a number of politicians from across the UK including Alison Thewliss, SNP MP for Glasgow Central.

She said: “I’m really looking forward to attending the British Kebab Awards this year.

“While it is important that we celebrate the many kebab restaurants and takeaways across the country, it’s those behind the scenes that make these places what they are.

“From the chefs to the cleaners and all those in between, every person that supports the outlets in the way that they do deserve a huge amount of thanks for their impact in society.

“It would be great if the people of my constituency could come together and show their appreciation for everyone who makes these places such a key part of the culture of Glasgow.”
