Uber Eats announces The Salad Project as the winner of the Restaurant of The Year Awards

The Salad Project has been voted the top restaurant in the UK & Ireland as part of the Uber Eats inaugural UK & Ireland Restaurant of the Year Awards

At the awards ceremony last night, The Salad Project was named as the winner and has been awarded £100,000 to build and expand their business.

Following several rounds of public voting, The Salad Project took part in a judging day amongst the other eight finalists from across the UK and Ireland, where they prepared some of their signature dishes for the judging panel who deliberated and came to a joint conclusion on the ultimate winner.

Speaking of the announcement, James Dare at The Salad Project said: “We are absolutely overjoyed to be announced as the winner of the Uber Eats Restaurant of the Year Awards. The process has been so exciting from start to finish and it has been incredible to take part alongside the other finalists and see the range of food on offer.

We are due to open another branch in Bank in the near future, so this investment from Uber Eats will go a long way toward helping make that a success and will also help us to continue our mission to open additional restaurants”.

In addition to the winner of the Restaurant of the Year award, Uber Eats, in collaboration with Hospitality Action, also announced the winner of the Pioneer & Innovator categories. These awards aimed to recognise the trailblazers in the industry who are leading the way after a turbulent few years for the hospitality industry.

The winners were:

  • Spice Box – Female Chef of the Year
  • Dirty Kitch – Black-owned Restaurant
  • Tir Deli – Sustainable Restaurant
  • Eat Clean – Health-focused Restaurant
  • The Ottoman Doner – Community/Social Impact Restaurant

Dame Prue Leith, cook, restaurateur, TV presenter and author, said: “I was hugely impressed by all  the finalists, and by the food  they served on the judging day. That from The Salad Project was particularly imaginative, colourful and delicious. I’m delighted to hear of their ambition to open additional restaurants. Their menu is fresh, full of flavour, healthy and extremely varied. There’s something for everyone on there.”

Uber Eats will also be providing a 20% discount to all Uber One members to try out the amazing food from the UK finalists’ menus. Uber One launched earlier this year offering a monthly subscription service for people across both Uber’s rides and delivery businesses.
