A CHINESE takeaway in Warrington's indoor market has redeemed itself with a new food hygiene score.

Tam's Takeaway, which can be found in the market on Time Square, was inspected on November 2.

Following the inspection, the outlet was awarded a food hygiene rating of four-out-of-five.

This is a massive improvement on its last score when it was slapped with a score of one in August.

Outlets are inspected by the Food Standards Agency, which ensures that establishments are up to scratch with food hygiene regulations.

Inspectors carry out checks against the following criteria:

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

Tam's Takeaway has been established as 'good' by the FSA.

Following its last hygiene inspection, the outlet temporarily closed its doors in the market, though it has since reopened.

The new report's summary online states that the eatery has been rated 'good' across hygienic food handling and the cleanliness and condition of the facilities and building.

Tam's Takeaway is also 'generally satisfactory' regarding the management of food safety.
