What is the UK's favourite cuisine?

Payment Sense reveals new data about Brits' takeaway and eating out habits.

The average person spends £9.75 on themselves at least once per month on takeaway food or eating out.

Using Payment Sense's card machine data of restaurants, takeaways and fast-food places, and a UK-wide survey of 2,000 people, the research firm found out what Britain’s favourite takeaway and restaurant cuisine is.

"Of the 30 cities that took part in our survey, all but three of them – Aberystwyth, Coventry, and Wolverhampton – crowned the Chinese takeaway as their favoured food-to-go. The other three areas all opted for Indian. The likes of fish and chips barely got a look in," the research said.

"And the winner of the battle of the restaurants is Italian. Above all else, Brits prefer to head out for pizza and pasta. Indian came in second once again, with traditional pub grub taking third place. In a surprising turn of fortune-cookies, Chinese was the UK’s least favourite restaurant."
