The restaurant was up against four other finalists in the Welsh takeaway category, Celebrities in Cardiff, No8 Fish & Chip Shop in Whitland, Fun Fillings in Tonypandy and Finney's @ Golden Fry in Benllech.

This is another accolade for the Barry restaurant which has also scooped a Best Asian Restaurant in South Wales at the Asian Restaurant Awards and has a recommendation in the Restaurant Guru guide for 2021.

The Mint Room serves classics from the tandoori oven as well as twists on British classics likes surf 'n' turf (pictured above) which features pakora battered fish, spicy chips and curried lentils.

There's been a run of hospitality venues in Wales scooping awards as the ceremony season gets back into the swing following lockdowns.

Just this week a Pontypridd market stall won best street food in Britain and Hare & Hounds won best pub in Wales at the Pub & Bar Awards 2021.
