A businessman who wanted to give Chatteris a double helping of pizzas and southern fried chicken has been told his proposals would be too smelly and too noisy.
Husnu Ata, of Ely, was refused permission by Fenland District Council's planners to convert the former Electromar store, in High Street, to a takeaway restaurant.
Gary Denley, his agent, told the council: "We consider this type of fast food facility will cause no nuisance factor to the adjacent or nearby properties.
"With the new-style silenced extraction and filtration systems, both noise and smells will be to a bare minimum."
But the planners disagreed, and Nigel Brown, development manager, said the proposals would have a detrimental impact on adjoining properties.
There would be increased parking, noise and odours and the loss of a retail shop would also affect the vitality and viability of the town centre, he said.

Mr Denley claimed, however, that the range of food to be sold in the takeaway "is proven not to cause any disturbance.
"Mr Ata already provides similar services in other local areas without conflict or problems.
