AN ESTABLISHED local takeaway has reopened after a three-week refurbishment.

Charcoal Grill, located at the entrance to The Mall on Bridge Street, has been serving up Kurdish & Turkish cuisine, alongside takeaway favourites, in Andover for 22-years.

Salman Gozlugol, the director of the business, is very pleased on the outcome and says that his "customers are loving the new look." He also wanted to pass on his thanks to customers "who were very patient with us throughout the refurbishment."

It's not just the look that has changed, the takeaway has also had an environmental make-over. "We have gone fully recyclable with our packaging. We now use biodegradable boxes for our meals and paper-bags on all orders." said Mr Gozlugol.

Charcoal Grill has also upgraded their menu selection, offering an increased number of vegetarian options, such as Grilled Halloumi or Falafel & Humus. According to a survey conducted by UK takeaway service Just Eat, 2017 saw a 987 percent increase in the demand for vegetarian options, prompting food providers to rethink their menus.
