Lincoln Chinese takeaway gets one star hygiene rating — again

The third time their hygiene is slammed

By Local Democracy Reporter

A Chinese takeaway in Lincoln has been given a one star hygiene rating for the third time in five years.

Sincil Garden on Sincil Bank towards the LNER football stadium, previously scored one star in 2016 and 2017.

City of Lincoln Council inspectors visited on June 8, judging the takeaway on hygienic food handling, cleanliness and condition of facilities, and management of food safety.

The restaurant required improvement on all three sections, with ‘major’ improvement necessary for food safety.

It is a drop of two stars from the last inspection it had, when it scored a satisfactory three stars in April 2019.

Despite this, customer reviews are quite favourable for Sincil Garden, scoring a 4.3/5 on Foodhub, and still managing 4.5 stars on JustEat.

The Lincolnite contact Sincil Garden for a response, but they did not wish to comment.
