Kingswood restaurant highlighted in TV exposé on food industry

fsaA popular Kingswood restaurant has been highlighted in a BBC documentary for its zero hygiene rating.

Inside Out West revealed that 66 premises in the west of England – including 11 in Bath & North East Somerset, six in Bristol and two in South Gloucestershire – have been given a zero rating for their hygiene.

Zero means urgent improvement is necessary. Among them is the Rupali Tandoori in Two Mile Hill, which the programme makers revealed was nonetheless displaying a five-star rating in its window.

Councils work with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to score premises between zero and five. Each hygiene rating is available to view online at but businesses are not forced to display their rating on their premises.

The Rupali, which got the zero rating in July, is rated as four or five-star by many reviewers on the TripAdvisor website.

Comments include: “This is my favourite Indian restaurant in Bristol.”

The Inside West programme is available to watch on BBC iPlayer all this week.
