RESTAURANT services in Lami Town are expected to improve with the recent restaurant grading consultations between restaurant owners and stakeholders.

On Wednesday seven restaurant owners along with health officials from the Lami Town Council gathered for the first 2014 consultation conducted by the Health Ministry's Food Unit to improve the quality of food and service provided.

Council health officer Salaima Maitoga said positive responses from these owners would be an added boost in terms of providing food businesses for the people of Lami.

Mrs Maitoga said there were complaints against food services, however, this was expected to improve with the grading that had been conducted.

"It's about time restaurants are graded," she said.

"Owners were also given a checklist to work on to improve their services.

"This will be the same list we will use upon inspection."

Mrs Maitoga said the restaurant grading would allow restaurants to improve the quality of their services.

"The response from the owners was positive and we hope to work closely with them throughout this year to achieve our aim of providing the best food services for the people of Lami."
