Istanbul Kebab House in Tooting the best in London
A takeaway in the borough has been deemed to sell the best kebabs in London.
Istanbul Kebab House, in Upper Tooting Road, Tooting, scooped the Best Kebab in London Award during the British Kebab Awards.
It has been based in Tooting for 20 years, with owner Mustafa Mural and his staff receiving their award during an event at the House of Commons last Monday.
The kebab house was nominated by MP Sadiq Khan, with a panel of restaurant owners, chefs and catering experts selecting it as the winner.
It is the first time the awards have taken place, created to celebrate the £1.5bn kebab industry.
Mr Mural said: "We are honoured to receive this prestigious award. This award has been a great motivator for us which will make us concentrate on continuing to provide quality food.
"This award has also made our customers happy and we are not only accepting this award on behalf of Istanbul Kebab House but on behalf of our customers".
Mr Khan said: "I am over the moon that my nomination, Istanbul Kebab House in Tooting, has won this award. It is great to see a fantastic local business receive such great recognition.
"This is now not only the best kebab in Tooting, as voted by local residents, but the best kebab in London."
