An Indian takeaway in Oxfordshire requires ‘major improvement’ according to food hygiene inspectors.

The Prince of India in The Parade in Didcot Inspectors was visited by South Oxfordshire District Council’s Environmental Health team on Tuesday, April 16.

Inspectors were not impressed with what they found and stated that ‘major improvement’ was necessary at the eatery.

As a result, the takeaway was given a one-out-of-five hygiene rating after the damning inspection.

The report outlined one key issue at The Prince of India which was highlighted as a cause of concern.

Management of food safety at the venue required ‘major improvement’ according to inspectors.

This refers to whether there is a system or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat.

It also concerns whether there is evidence that staff know about food safety and if the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future.

The cleanliness and condition of both the facilities and the building were then rated as ‘generally satisfactory’.

This includes having an appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control to enable good food hygiene.

The Prince of India’s hygienic handling of food was also given the same rating following the snap inspection by the environmental health team.

This refers to the preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage of food.

The Oxford Mail has approached The Prince of India for comment.
