Thirteen takeaways and sandwich shops passed the Food Standards Agency (FSA) hygiene inspection in December - here’s the full list.

Food hygiene ranks among the top concerns for customers when picking a restaurant to order from but it’s difficult to know if the chosen takeaway is spic and span or outright dangerous.

Here are the latest takeaways and sandwich shops in Edinburgh to pass their food hygiene inspections in December 2022, according to data published by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

From five-star restaurants to hospital canteens, local authority food inspectors visit any premises in Edinburgh that prepares, provides or distributes food and reports their findings to the FSA, as well as Food Standards Scotland. The inspectors check the handling, management and preparation of food, storage and the cleanliness of facilities and then provide a Food Hygiene Information Scheme (FHIS) rating which is either a Pass or Improvement Required. The scheme covers more than 48,000 food outlets across Scotland.

A Pass means the premises has met the legal requirements for food hygiene and Improvement Required means the business didn’t meet the legal requirements and needs to make improvements.

Following the inspection, businesses are provided with a certificate or sticker to display on their door or window. Some businesses may choose not to display their rating on their website or premises, but all ratings are published online.
