Popular Indian restaurant restores positive hygiene rating

A popular Indian restaurant just outside of Lincoln has seen its food hygiene rating soar up to 4/5 after being re-inspected following a low score of 1/5 in August.

As previously reported, MaCh, which is located on Wragby Road East in North Greetwell was visited by West Lindsey District Council inspectors on August 21, when it was deemed major improvement was necessary.

The previous rating stated that improvement was deemed necessary in hygienic food handling and major improvement was needed in the management of food safety.

The restaurant, which was founded in 2006 by Mav Gosal and Charlotte, has worked hard to rectify the “blip in record” and have now been awarded the rating of four after an inspection on October 10, which is the highest score that can be achieved after a reinspection.

The restaurant owners are delighted with the new rating and praised their great customers for supporting them.

They told The Lincolnite: “Thanks to all our customers for all the positive support and can rest assured it was just a blip in record keeping which has now been rectified.

“We were taken a back from such positive response from our customers and would like to thank everyone.”

A West Lindsey District Council representative also praised the efforts of the restaurant, adding: “The council can confirm that MaCh are now rated four for hygiene after previously being rated a one star.

“They were reinspected on October 10 and are now rated the highest they can get after a reinspection.

“MaCh have put in a lot of effort to get back up to a quality standard and if they maintain these standards there is no reason they won’t be at a five on the next inspection.”

The restaurant has an overall rating of 4.5 stars from 157 posts on Google reviews and a lot of positive comments.

It has a similar rating on Trip Advisor from over 400 reviews with two as recently as a week ago highlighting its excellent reputation and the quality of the food.
