    Can anyone advise me on what type of SEO work should be done for a restaurant or takeaway website.

    Would it be different from a national or international online business since you will only be targetting your local area?

    Actually, this one would be best served in the ' whitehat seo ' section.

    To answer the op's question:

    Local seo targeting is best for any offline business with a site when restricted to a local area like a rest. would be. You don't want to be shipping food across the globe if your plan is to remain a local establishment. Focus on traditional seo to get your site ranked but focus your ' marketing ' efforts in the local search arena. You have to consider who your target market is and give them offers that will get them coming into your place of business.

    It sounds 101 level stuff but coupons, mentioning discount codes/phrases, special discounts for coming in posted only in your newsletter for find out those offers, etc...Online menu and communication, blogs with customer comments, facebook where people can talk to you and give honest feedback; good or bad.

    All of these things..you need to target your tradional seo for getting the site listed and your local seo for bringing the customers bargains and in to eat your food. Marketing any business this aggressively, keep in mind that you'd better be up to par or they will eat you alive, should your food suck or service flop,etc.

    The individual is normally easy going and cool but there are those that would be out to run at you with pitchforks and torches...it happens.

    Hope this helps.
