‘Major improvement necessary’

Two Easton restaurants have been told to make major improvements after being handed one of the lowest food hygiene ratings in their most recent safety inspections.

African Palace and Noor Restaurant and Takeaway both received a rating of one on a sliding scale of zero to five after they were visited by Bristol City Council officers on March 21 and May 3 respectively.

The results were published by the Food Standards Agency this week.

Inspectors found that African Palace, on Stapleton Road, was found to be ‘generally satisfactory’ in two of the three assessed areas - ‘hygienic food handling’ and ‘cleanliness and condition of facilities and building’.

But ‘major improvement’ was necessary when it came to ‘management of food safety’.

This includes an assessment of systems and checks in place to ensure food is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer’s confidence that standards will be maintained in the future.
