Fate of Cirencester restaurant on menu at council meeting

A review of the license held by a popular Cirencester restaurant is due to take place following a raid which saw five men arrested.

The Cotswold town's Dollar Street business, The Indian Rasoi, was raided on May 31, with a Nepalese man and four Bangladeshi men arrested by enforcement officers.

According to reports the visas for the five were out of date and all were detained pending further investigation with potential fines looming of £20,000 per head.

As a result of the raid the Home Office requested the district council review the licence for the restaurant and that is currently scheduled to take place on October 18.

Recent postings on on-line review site Trip Advisor are mixed, ranging from "just superb" and "delicious food, great service" and "So good we went back following evening" to "average" and "good but could do better".

No one was available for comment from The Indian Rasoi.
