In total, 72 establishment were inspected by Wigan Council’s food hygiene teams in October, with a third, 24, of those getting the highest rating of five.
More than 73 per cent of the places inspected were deemed to be operating at an acceptable standard, receiving a rating of three (generally satisfactory) or higher, with 17 establishments rated as three and 12 as four.
Only three places were rated as two (improvement necessary) while 15 received the second lowest rating of one (major improvement required).
LA Orient on Church Street in Orrell was the only place rated as zero (urgent improvements necessary) following the inspectors visit on October 17.

It was also told to make major improvements to the cleanliness and condition of the facilities and building. Inspectors told the owners to improve the layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control to enable good food hygiene.
The takeaways hygienic food handling, including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage was found to be generally satisfactory.
Businesses that serve food are rated on a scale of zero to five on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored, the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
The information provided on businesses is held on behalf of local authorities participating in the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in England, Northern Ireland and Wales or the Food Hygiene Information Scheme in Scotland.
The inspections continue throughout the year, with rating designed to provide reassurance to customers.
Establishments are also marked on food-handling practices and procedures and temperature control, as well as its structural compliance, such as cleanliness, lay-out, condition of structure, lighting, ventilation and facilities.
Businesses are also marked on confidence in management, which is graded on the performance of those in charge and issues such as how well guidelines are understood by the workforce as well as things such as the track record of the company and complaint history.
