The awards will recognise takeaways across Scotland which are the real masters in their category, from the Best Italian and Chinese outlets, to the Best Dessert or Breakfast Takeaways of the Year.

Irfan Younis, CEO of hosts Creative Oceanic said: “Takeaways have been around for a long time and are the very backbone of the local community and economy.

“The awards aim to provide a platform to those who have dedicated their career in providing us with delicious dishes across multiple cuisines in a timely manner and affordable prices.”

He added: “The competition is tough as there are some excellent professionals in the industry but each finalist has their own success story to tell.

“We can’t wait to welcome our guests and celebrate the winners with them.”

Other finalists from the North-east at the awards, covering various categories, include takeaways in Alford, Inverurie, Ellon, Whiterashes, Banff, Macduff, Turriff and Aberdeen.
