Food hygiene ratings in Camden: the takeaways and restaurants given top 5-star ratings in December 2022

The FSA visits food establishments to examine their hygiene standards

Camden is brimming with top restaurants, takeaways and cafes to treat yourself in. Trying to decide where to drop in can be tough and it feels as though you might never be able to make your mind up.

One way in which you can help to narrow down your search is through the Food Hygiene ratings given to establishments each month. These are refreshed monthly and will allow you to check out the very best places to eat in your local area.

Here are the latest restaurants, takeaways and cafes in Camden to be given the full five stars in their food hygiene inspections in December 2022, according to data published by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

From swanky restaurants to hospital canteens, local authority food inspectors will visit any premise in the area that prepares, provides or distributes food and report their findings to the FSA. Every few years, the inspectors check the handling, management and preparation of food, storage and the cleanliness of facilities and then give the premises a rating from 0 to 5.

In Camden, the top ratings have been handed out to an array of food establishments. Ranging from chicken shops to staff kitchens, the full details are collected right here.

The food ratings are broken down into the following categories:

  •  5 – hygiene standards are very good; 
  • 4 – hygiene standards are good; 
  • 3 – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory;
  • 2 – some improvement is necessary; 
  • 1 – major improvement is necessary; 
  • 0 – urgent improvement is required.

If a restaurant or cafe has had a poor review, they do not need to display the rating but are encouraged to do so by the FSA.
