When it comes to dinner time, Brits absolutely love a takeaway or two.
And with the coronavirus pandemic it has meant more of people have relied on a delivery to remain fed.
Now the Britain’s best takeaways have been revealed – thanks to the British Takeaway Awards (BTAs).
Held in association with Just Eat, the awards ran for a sixth year with local takeaways being recognised across the UK.
Not only is it all about the delicious food, but how these places have worked to reduce their environmental impact.
The star-studded ceremony was held in London and hosted by TV presenter Paddy McGuinness.
Celebrity guests including Daisy Lowe, Pixie Lott, Oliver Cheshire, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Chris Kamara and John Barnes all attended.
Judges including restaurateur and TV chef Nisha Katona and Asma Khan from Netflix’s Chef’s Table also joined the celebrations.
And it was Yorkshire based Sakushi Japanese which was named Best Takeaway in Britain.
The local takeaway impressed judges with its vegan and vegetarian menu and community initiatives.
Two new titles, the Good Deed Hero Award and New to Delivery Award, were also handed out this year.
British Raj Express won the Good Deed Hero award and Chickenish scooped the New to Delivery title.

Andrew Kenny, Managing Director of Just Eat, said: “Takeaway food is a massive part of our British culture and this year more than ever we wanted to recognise the local takeaways that kept the nation fed, while also making an immeasurable contribution to their local communities and the UK economy.
“From delivering a taste of normality when communities needed it most to providing healthier options we want to congratulate all of the deserving winners for continuing to bring the nation the food they love.”
