The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FSA) rates food businesses on their hygiene standards, based on inspections carried out by the council's food safety officers.

Businesses are rated on a scale ranging from 0 which means 'urgent improvement necessary' to a top rating of 5 which is 'very good'.

The data paints a positive picture of the city's eateries with the majority of them being rated as 'generally satisfactory' or above.

But some are currently waiting on inspections or the publication of reports following inspections. This includes Tasty Chinese Restaurant on Prince of Wales Road which was recently up at Norwich Magistrates Court after food inspection officers uncovered a litany of breaches including food being stored in the disabled toilet and cross contamination.

• The cleanliness, layout, lighting and ventilation of the building
