This Is Britain's Filthiest Takeaway

Tuesday 26th November 2013

This takeaway in Waltham Forest has been dubbed the dirtiest in Britain after it was closed down by health inspectors.


It was described by the council as "the filthiest premises I have seen in a long time". The Wood Street restaurant was closed down last week following the inspection.

The QFC branch was infested with mice and the cooking equipment had clearly not been cleaned for a long time.



Councillor Clyde Loakes said: "It begs the question, 'What does the Q in QFC stand for?'

"If we assume the F stands for Fried and the C stands for Chicken, one can only imagine what the Q could denote? Queasy? Questionable? Certainly not Quality, that’s for sure!


"In all seriousness, the photos I have seen connected with this inspection tell a pretty disgusting tale. There has obviously been very little cleaning carried out and hygiene appears to have been given no consideration whatsoever.

“The fact that mice were running around this kitchen – and from the amount of droppings found, for some time too – just makes you feel sick for anyone who has eaten there recently.”
