The owner of an Indian restaurant in Sidmouth says the business has turned around – months after receiving a poor hygiene rating.
Kazi Ahmed, of the Cinnamon Tree, said his restaurant in Radway Place now boasts a 'four' hygiene rating - one mark off o'very good'. It was previously rated 'zero'.
The business owner has revamped the restaurant kitchen, including making repairs to its floor, and has invested in new cookware.
"We are looking forward to welcoming back old customers and greeting new customers.
!We have introduced new offers on our eat-in and takeaway menus and hope to bring people back."
