This Ribbleton takeaway looks no different to any other. Things were a little rough around the edges, with paint peeling off some of the walls.

Inspectors may have found reason to give Chopan a zero star rating but it clearly hasn’t dented the popularity of the store with customers regularly popping in and out throughout my 30-minute visit this week.

I ordered a chicken kebab and it was freshly prepared in front of me. I certainly couldn’t complain about the size and after a night on the town it would have been ideal.

But when council inspectors visited the premesis they found more underlying issues. They found there was no means of drying staff’s hands in the toilet, spices being kept in open packets and fridges were too warm. The microwave was also foun to be dirty and staff were not wearing clean clothing, said inspectors. Along with food being left to cool for too long, inpsectors gave Chopan Authentic Cuisine zero stars.

Rated zero on February 16, 2016

Only opened in 2016 and so did not have a 2015 rating.
