Indian restaurant in Wales ‘disgusting’

The owner of the Royal Massala restaurant has been ordered to do unpaid work after admitting offences.

royalA rodent infestation, mouldy food and a dirty kitchen that put customers at risk have landed one Indian restaurant owner in court.

Inspectors uncovered a catalogue of health hazards at the Royal Massala in Pencoed, near Bridgend, and slapped it with a zero rating.

But owner Sheik Mohammed Anwar failed to clean up his act – receiving a rating of one in a follow-up inspection – and he has now been sentenced in court, according to a statement from Bridgend County Borough Council.

The council has also threatened to ban Anwar from managing any food business in the future.
