THE manager of a Chinese restaurant handed a one hygiene rating said they will do their best to improve.

Chee Wei Chinese Take Away, which is based on Abbotsbury Court in St Peter's, Worcester, underwent a food hygiene inspection on March 27 by the Food Standards Agency.

The inspection covered a wide range of areas that included ratings for hygienic food handling, cleanliness and condition of facilities and building, and management of food safety.

The takeaway was awarded a generally satisfactory rating for its hygienic food handling and cleanliness and condition of facilities and building

However, it received a major improvement necessary score for management of food safety.

All of these combined meant that it scored an overall food hygiene rating of one star - the lowest mark that an establishment can receive.

Wei Han, manager at Chee Wei Takeaway, said: "We will do our best to improve our score for our next inspection.

"We will install new equipment, preparing all our food and keeping everything tidy.

"We will do all we can to get a higher rating and prepare well for our next inspection."

The takeaway has now been given a list of improvements it will need to make before it undergoes another inspection.

Hygiene inspections are carried out by the local authority.

This result means that of Worcester's 103 takeaways with ratings, 66 (64%) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.
