Watchdogs said major improvement was needed at the takeaway

The hygiene rating scheme is designed to help customers choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving you clear information about the businesses’ hygiene standards.

Inspections are carried out on behalf of the Food Standards Agency by local councils.

The food hygiene rating reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of the inspection by the local authority and the rating is not a guide to food quality.
