Good luck to the guys at Smokin’ Griddle who could win £5,000 if they grab the top prize!

A Romford fast-food restaurant could be in line to be named the best takeaway in London.

Smokin’ Griddle in Heath Park Road, Romford has named as one of the finalists at the British Takeaway Awards (BTAs).

The BTAs, which are run in association with online delivery company Just Eat are all about celebrating and recognising the small and often family run businesses that work tirelessly to serve the nation’s favourite takeaways.

The top five takeaways in Greater London that received the most public votes have made it through to the national awards ceremony on November 12 at The Savoy in London.

To determine the region’s winner, each of the finalists will now be marked on a mystery shop, and will provide a written submission on why they deserve to win.

A panel of judges, including former star of BBC2 Dragon’s Den Sarah Willingham and UK managing director of Just Eat, Graham Corfield, will review the results and identify regional winners and the overall victor for Best Takeaway in Britain.
