The business’ cleanliness and the condition of its facilities and building was rated ‘improvement necessary’, and its hygienic food handling, including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage, was rated ‘generally satisfactory’.

The owner of Indian Kitchen told the Pioneer they were unhappy with the rating, and that as an open plan kitchen “customers can see what we do”.

They said: “I’m not happy with this food hygiene rating of one, that’s really unfair for my business - the health officer didn’t get anything serous.

“This is only open plan kitchen in North Wales, we cook food in front of customers, the customers can see what we do.”
