Businesses that serve food are rated on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored; the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, lay-out, lighting, ventilation and other facilities, as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
A one star rating means "major improvement is necessary", a two star means "some improvement is necessary", while three star means "hygiene standards are generally satisfactory" and four star means "hygiene standards are good".
