A BARROW based Indian restaurant has scored a one rating for food safety management for the fourth inspection in a row.

The four inspections have taken place at the highly popular Dhaba, based on Dalton Road, since October 2017, all stated major improvement was required in the area of food safety management, but it scored highly in terms of food handling and cleanliness of the facility and building.

Commenting on the one ratings, the Dhaba owner said: “We are still waiting for a review coming in December.

“At the time of the visit we were still newly opened and getting things back in order, which is why we got this rating really.

“We have put the correct measures in place, we just can’t get anyone to do a reassessment until December because of Covid. Hopefully come December we will have a new rating.”

Councillor Tony Callister, Barrow Borough Council spokesperson for licensing and public protection, said: “Dhaba, in Dalton Road, was inspected on August 4 and rated under the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

“All inspections carried out under the scheme are unannounced and the business scored a one rating on this occasion.

“Barrow Borough Council would encourage food businesses operators who have not achieved a satisfactory rating to request a re-score visit so that any improvements already made or recommendations actioned since the last inspection can be assessed. The team are always keen to work with businesses across the borough to help them identify how they can improve their existing rating."
