An Indian restaurant that was slammed with a zero hygiene rating score has successfully appealed against the decision.

Curry Gardens, situated on Eastfield Road, Burnham, was inspected by the Food Standards Agency on May 26.

Following the inspection the restaurant was downgraded from a five-star food hygiene rating to a zero.

Owner of Curry Gardens Malik Miah revealed that the rating saw the restaurant dropped from popular takeaway apps Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat. 

It was feared the move would cost the business £6,000 to £8,000 a month in orders.

Since the news, Curry Gardens have spoken out against the rating, stating that they were to appeal against it.

A spokesperson from Curry Gardens previously said: "We have appealed against this new rating and will fully cooperate with them and get back our five Star rating what we deserve.

"We like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and more than happy to answer any questions you may have ."

The Indian restaurant and takeaway then closed its doors to the public for six days for "essential repair work", before reopening.

Following their reopening, Curry Gardens was quickly added back onto key delivery apps.

The Food Standards Agency originally handed Curry Gardens a zero hygiene rating due to poor food handling and an absence of paperwork.

A lack of date stamps, allergen management and safety training were mentioned, along with a gap underneath the kitchen door that put the establishment at risk of pests.

On July 27 the Food Standards Agency revealed that Curry Gardens has come out of "urgent improvement is required" category, moving to a rating of three - "hygiene standards are generally satisfactory".

Taking to Facebook, a spokesperson for Curry Gardens said: "Our appeal has been a success and the new rating is now a three rating.

"A massive thank you to all our loyal customers.

"As mentioned we were never a zero.

"We still have work to do to get our five-star back."

The news has been met with happy customers saying "hooray" and "fab news".
