Food for thought from Forest Gate restaurants

Friday, 10 October 2014


This is the third, and final, blog looking at the most recent food hygiene ratings for Forest Gate. It features results from the 49 restaurants and takeaways, six hotels and three pubs that currently have a rating.

As explained in our first blog (see here), the listing is far from comprehensive, so, for example a cluster of eateries around Forest Gate station, such as Forest Gate Tavern, Aromas, Artemis, and Kaffeine have yet to be rated.  Their time will, doubtless come!

The results are, frankly, pretty poor., and may give as much food for thought, as for stomach, for potential diners.

The headline findings are quite shocking:
  • Only 3 of 49 restaurants and takeaways (6%) received a 5 star rating - two local branches of fast food chains ( Papa's Chicken and Pizza Hut, both of Woodgrange Road), and Khan Khazana of Green Street
  •  10 restaurants achieved 4 stars (20% of the total)


  • 13 restaurants achieved 3 stars (26%)
  • 23 assessed restaurants and takeawys achieved 2 or fewer stars. That is over 46% of all surveyed
  • 4 restaurants (8%) were given zero stars (Pakhtoonkwha and Aghan Kebab House, both on Green Street, the New Sea Garden of Katherine Road and Abu Bakar's of Upton Lane) - a worryingly high number
  • Only 3 of Forest Gate's 6 pubs have so far been assessed. Again a local branch of a national chain (Wetherspoons), The Hudson Bay, comes up trumps, with 5 stars
  • Of Forest Gate's 6 assessed hotels, two (Daken House on Romford Road and Sahara Lodge on Earlham Grove) achieved 5 stars
