Dawat restaurant regains four-star hygiene score

A FACE which may be familiar to Indian food lovers in the island has returned to the kitchen of the restaurant he owns, and has helped it go from zero hygiene stars to four.

Dawat restaurant in St Martin’s has been given four stars in its hygiene rating after a refurbishment and staff changes. The establishment had previously received a zero-star rating from Environmental Health. Pictured are, left to right, owner Sultan Al-Mahmood, Abdur Rahim and Shaikh Shafiqul.

Dawat restaurant closed last month after receiving no stars in an Environmental Health inspection after concerns were raised about the kitchen, which was fitted in 2013.

Owner Sultan al-Mahmood said he was shocked and unhappy when he heard the news but since then he has been working with restaurant manager Hadi Mohammed to make changes that satisfy Environmental Health.

The major change was to sack the old chef and some members of staff, and to take over cooking duties himself with new staff members.

Mr al-Mahmood had praise for the Population Management Law, which he said had made it an easier task to employ staff in Guernsey than it had been in the UK.
