A restaurant owner has promised improvement after it was handed a low food hygiene rating.

Sajna Indian restaurant on Station Road, Beaconsfield, was inspected by the Food Standards Agency on September 20, 2023, the FSA website shows.

The hygiene watchdog inspects all restaurants, cafes, takeaways, bars, pubs and canteens and gives them a score from zero (urgent improvement required) to five (hygiene standards are very good).

Sajna received one-out-five rating after the September inspection, meaning major improvement is necessary.

Hygienic food handling, including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage, was found to be “generally satisfactory” at the time of inspection.

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building to enable good food hygiene, including ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control, were found as “improvement necessary.”

Major improvement was necessary on management of food safety at the time of inspection, which includes systems or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat and evidence that staff know about food safety.

The owner of Sajna Alauddin Choudhury said: “In regards with the 1-star rating back in September, we had issues with the book keeping and was not fully up to date with mistakes, as the cleanliness was not part of the rating at all, they were happy with how everything else was in the restaurant.

“We have gone through with the council and everything is up to date and recorded correctly as we will be getting a new rating soon.”
