THE food hygiene rating of an Indian restaurant in Ulverston has been revealed.

Aroma Indian Dining scored three out of five in the inspection in September of this year.

This indicates food hygiene at the King Street eatery is 'generally satisfactory'.

The site received a rating of 'generally satisfactory' in all three inspection areas. These are:

  • Hygienic handling of food, including preparation, cooking, reheating, cooling and storage
  • Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building - including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand-washing facilities and pest control - to enable good food hygiene
  • System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, with the food safety officer having confidence that standards will be maintained in future

Display of a food hygiene rating sticker on a premises is voluntary in England.

Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection by local authority officers.

It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.
