High restaurant standards highlighted in Randwick

July 12, 2015 by  

Residents in Randwick can now check the ratings of many of the area’s restaurants online, with food safety standards being made available on the Randwick City Council website.

The council takes part in the New South Wales Food Authority’s Scores on Doors programme, which rates food businesses after they are inspected by environmental health officers.

Premises that receive a rating of at least three stars are awarded a certificate to display onsite.

Randwick's mayor, Ted Seng, said the region had some of Sydney’s best eateries, which also adhered to high safety and hygiene standards. He added that the council was pleased to promote them.

Businesses could also use printing services to include their star rating in promotional material such as sample menus to be delivered to locals, or posters in the restaurant window.

The scheme is voluntary and not all premises are listed, but this does not necessarily mean they do not meet hygiene standards.

Randwick and Maroubra are home to many of the 80 five-star rated restaurants and cafes on the list, so diners have plenty of choices when they want to head out for a meal.

The businesses are listed alphabetically in star rating categories on the Randwick City Council website. The council is also offering residents the chance to win dinner to the value of $60 each week until September.
