The Guardian (the real one, not the Wanstead one) has published a map of all food hygiene ratings in England, and as far as the eateries on Wanstead High Street are concerned it’s looking pretty good. Only two restaurants seem to have failed to get a 5 rating (ie full marks) – and they were the little lamented Bipasha on Nightingale Lane, which has now become Deshi Spice, and Purbani on the High Street which is still open but scored a 2 in the tests. It’s fair to say the tests are somewhat historical, having been conducted in 2011, but all the information comes from the Food Standard Agency.
Wansteadium reader Dan Lane emailed to say: “Naturally, I checked out the places along Wanstead high street first and I’m please to say pretty much everyone scored a five. The only place to fail was Purbani with a score of two, which is ironic as it always smells of bleach whenever I go in.”
