EVERYONE loves a late night takeaway at the weekend.

One favourite in particular that the British public enjoy is a kebab.

Now a Gwent kebab shop is in the running to be named the best in the country.

Wales Kebab in Abertridwr, Caerphilly, is one of the places up for a prize at the British Kebab Awards.

This is the sixth year that the British Kebab Awards have been running. The awards aim to show a reflection of the kebab industry’s significant contribution to the UK economy and British culture in general.

However, the best kebab in Gwent is a highly contested title with opinions divided on who serves the best ones.

We asked our readers which kebab venues were their favourite to visit and here are just a few of their favourites in no particular order.

Sen BBQ, Newport

The kebab house and barbecue venue is located in Chepstow Road, Newport.

Readers have described it as “a great place with authentic food”.

Sen BBQ offers up shawarma kebabs, Turkish tea and a range of mezze options for visitors to choose from.

People can dine in at Sen BBQ’s restaurant or take their food to go - and kebabs are served with fresh salad and freshly made bread.

Ibrahim Ucar, the co-owner of Sen BBQ, said it’s success is down to it being a family run business and things being fresh.

“We do everything ourselves,” said Mr Ucar.

“The kebabs are fresh in and we make the bread ourselves so that is fresh as well. People can also sit in and eat.”
