Four local restaurants in Glasgow were among the winners.

  • Best Chinese in Scotland: Salt & Chilli

The awards also saw Luxford Burgers in Edinburgh, take home the top regional gong as Independent Restaurant of the Year Scotland 2024 after customers cast their votes online to help decide award winners.

This year saw a total of 60 awards up for grabs, including the highly coveted Independent Restaurant of the Year, which was won by Dublin-based Greek restaurant Yeeros.

Over 66,000 votes were cast by customers over a two-week period to crown no less than 50 regional cuisine-led winners

Deliveroo founder and CEO Will Shu said: “I say it every year, but the standard of finalists and winners for this year’s Restaurant Awards has been incredible. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a number of restaurant owners to hear about their stories, food, and the positive impact they’ve had on their local communities and we are proud to partner with such an incredible array of dedicated restaurants to deliver food from around the world to doorsteps across the UK and Ireland. A huge well done to all of this year’s winners.”
