A KEBAB shop in Chepstow has been named as a finalist in The Welsh Asian Food Awards 2022.

Efes Kebab, in Bulwark Road, is a finalist in the Turkish Takeaway of the Year category in the awards, which are in their second year.

The kebab and pizza shop, which offers collection and delivery, is owned and directed by Yunus Altinsoy, who said:

“I feel blessed to be a finalist and the team has worked very hard over the years – especially in Covid time.

“I’ve done my best to help the community, as much as I could, to ease the issues.

“I would like to send all my appreciation to my loyal customers and those who support us; without them I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Efes Kebab will be closed throughout the summer, as Mr Altinsoy has gone home to Turkey for the first time in three years.

It will re-open on Monday, September 5.
