Kebab Land in Harrow has been shortlisted for the first-ever Turkish Restaurant and Takeaway awards coming up in February.

The past year has tested every business operating in the hospitality sector, getting to the finals is a real achievement and all outlets should be proud.”

They provide a wide range of delicious, flavourful dishes, using fresh, quality ingredients, while also contributing significantly to our local economy. Turkish cuisine brings together global histories and traditions and allows those in this constituency to celebrate the various groups and cultures that make up this Scottish nation. For a long time, these restaurants have been at the heart of this South-West Scottish community, and I know my constituents will agree with me that they are of great importance to our constituency.”
