Georgia Savva said while leaving for work on Tuesday she noticed that a cross that had been on her house for many years was in pieces and left on her doormat.
When her two children checked the family's security cameras, Savva said she was shocked to learn a driver for Romna Gate Tandoori in Southgate had torn it down the night before.
"My son looked at the CCTV and called me up at work to say it was the delivery driver. I couldn't believe it. It was heavy-duty, nailed down, I've had it for eight years since I moved in," she said according to the Evening Standard.
"He had to yank it hard twice to rip it out. Then when he answered the door to my son he was really cheerful, and said, 'Hello sir,' he got a good tip."
Savva, who reported the incident to police as a hate crime, also complained to restaurant.
The restaurant sent her a written apology and also stated on Facebook that the driver has been terminated.
According to the Evening Standard, a Met spokesman said Enfield's Community Safety Unit was investigating the incident and added: "A 55-year-old man has been interviewed under caution, he was not arrested. Inquiries continue."
