The Monmouthshire establishments have made the cut - out of a total of 15 in Wales.

In the semi-finals are Efes on Bulwark Road, Chepstow and Mezze Me on Frogmore Street, Abergavenny.

They join Erhan’s Charcoal Grill of Pengam Road, Ystrad Mynach, Sam’s Grill House and Wales Kebab, both on Thomas Street in Abertridwr representing Caerphilly.

Sezgin Aydin, spokesperson for the TURTA awards, said: “There are an ever-growing number of fantastic Turkish restaurants and takeaways in the UK, and this popular cuisine is only on the rise. It offers culinary delights that balance an indulgent night out with healthy choices using fresh, quality ingredients.

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