An Oxford restaurant has been handed a new five-out-of-five food hygiene rating following an inspection.

Mowgli Street Food at Cinnamon Kitchen in the Westgate Centre was given the maximum score after an assessment on June 10, the Food Standards Agency has stated.

It means that food hygiene standards are deemed to be 'very good' at the eatery.

Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection.

It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.

It means that of Oxford's 397 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 345 (87 per cent) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

Mowgli founder Nisha Katona opened the eatery in Oxford having started out in Liverpool and Manchester.

Speaking to the Oxford Mail in 2018, Nisha said: "I opened my first Mowgli on Bold Street Liverpool in 2014 when I was still working as a full time as a barrister. We expanded quickly to Manchester a year later and have opened our fifth site in Oxford this month.

"Having no experience and only a spice-based dream, I began by looking in the hinterlands, the bohemian districts of Liverpool, and found a site and a landlord that would take a risk.

"The rest is history and we are pursuing our dream to become a national voice for good, home-style, fresh, clean Indian food.

"Oxford really excites us because the city is full of the people to whom we want to appeal to."
