Royston takeaway owners are celebrating after the business was rated five-stars by the Foods Standards Agency.

It’s a turnaround for Royston Tandoori, which was rated two-stars last January, before Safwaan Choudhury took the reins in July.

He said: “In all my years working at other restaurants in the town, I have never witnessed an inspection so was slightly nervous when the inspector turned up unexpectedly.

“The rating is a reflection of an establishment’s food hygiene, structural compliance and confidence in management and we’re over the moon to have passed with flying colours.

“Receiving the five-stars serves as a real testament to my team and partners at Royston Tandoori – we’re immensely proud to have achieved this difficult feat.”

Since Safwaan joined the business, a new head chef has been recruited, and there has been extensive renovations to the kitchen.
