Top praise has been heaped on Kidspace Romford in its latest food hygiene audit.

The external report praised the kitchen, run by food and beverage manager Rafik Karmedi, for its cleanliness and tidiness.

The auditor said: “Over the years I’ve been auditing Kidspace Romford it’s clear that a culture of pride and excellence has taken hold in how they look after their kitchen and service area.

“Rafik and the team are doing an excellent job. I haven’t seen a cleaner tidier, better cared for kitchen.”

He added: “The food prep areas are among the cleanest I’ve seen anywhere in a working kitchen. Even the grill and fryers are spotless.

“It continues to be difficult to find anything but praise for the general condition and cleanliness of the kitchen. I don’t see a better kept kitchen on my travels.”

The audit was carried out by external company Food Wine & Company Ltd.
