A NEW Nepalese restuarant and takeaway has been handed top marks for its hygiene.

Conducted by the Food Standards Agency, the new rating was given out this week.

Ratings from the FSA range from 0 (urgent improvement is required) to 5 (hygiene standards are very good).

It is important to remember, though, that the food hygiene rating reflects the standards of food hygiene, not food quality.

  • Marse, a takeaway at Unit 30, The Brooks, Middle Brook Street, Winchester was given a score of five-out-of-five on April 5. 
  • Hampshire Chronicle:

Owned by Laxmi Lama and her husband Santosh Chumi, Marse opened at Unit 30, Middle Brook Street, at the Brooks Shopping Centre, on Saturday, March 19.
