The discovery was made at Taj Mahal Restaurant, on Hall Gate in Doncaster, after an officer from the council’s Environmental Health Food Safety Team visited in 2014 to carry out routine food sampling.

The takeaway was found to be substituting lamb for a mixture of beef and chicken in its Lamb Korma.

At a hearing at Doncaster Magistrate’s Court the company which operates the restaurant, Spicy Food Restaurant Limited, pleaded guilty to meat substitution and was fined £3,000. The company was also ordered to pay £1,132.77 costs and a victim surcharge of £120.

It is vitally important that customers know what they are getting when they order food from a restaurant or takeaway, and this case emphasises that we will not tolerate any local businesses trying to deceive customers.
