Sweet and sour chicken, beef and black bean source, and chow mein -- these are some of the most common Chinese foods you could see in Britain, and they have been voted as the favorite takeaway cuisine of the British people according to a television documentary.

A Channel 5 documentary show called Britain's Favorite Takeaway has ranked 20 of the most beloved dishes in the country, and Chinese food was crowned top by nabbing nearly a quarter of the overall vote.

Indian food ranked second, and British classic fish and chips came in third. Pizza and burgers were voted as the fourth and fifth respectively.

Digging into the origins of the cuisines, the documentary revealed that the first Chinese restaurant opened in Britain in 1908, while immigration from Hong Kong in the 1950s and 1960s made the food even more popular after.
