This is how unhygienic a food outlet has to be to get a zero-star rating
Hygienic food handling - Major improvement necessary

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and buildings - Major improvement necessary

Management of food safety - Urgent improvement necessary

If you wish to see the food safety officer’s report on which this outlet’s rating is based, you can request this from the local authority.

The takeaway was one of four given a zero-star rating by the Food Standards Agency as well as many more with a one-star rating.
How are food outlets judged on hygiene?

Businesses that serve food are judged on three criteria:

- How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.

- The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities

- How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.

Urban Spice is a takeaway specialising in Indian, Mexican and Halal food with a five-and-half star rating on JustEat.

This is what happens when a restaurant or takeaway gets a zero-star food hygiene rating.
