Food hygiene ratings in Kensington and Chelsea: the restaurants and cafes given 5 stars in December 2022

The latest food hygiene ratings for London’s Kensington and Chelsea have been released for December to help you find the best place to eat near you.

Whether you’re a tourist in London looking for the best place for a spot of lunch, or you’re a London local looking for the best restaurant near you - knowing the hygiene ratings could be a big help. The Food Standards Agency publishes its findings on a monthly basis, and here’s the most up to date ratings from December.

Here are the latest restaurants and cafes in Chelsea and Kensington 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 posh 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.

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.
