No, they're not ALL like Mama's Kitchen - here are the Harrow takeaways with 5-star food hygiene ratings

After Mama's Kitchen was closed when mouse droppings were found on food, we take a look at some of Harrow's cleanest takeaways instead

It's hard not to love a takeaway - all your favourite foods, cooked up quickly and delivered to your door just a tap, click or call away

In fact, sometimes the convenience is all too tempting, so much so that we forget to take account of what it is we're actually eating.

And with the news of a popular Harrow food outlet, which served up fried chicken and kebabs while vermin run riot in the premises and left droppings all over food , residents in the borough may be left wondering where is safe for them to eat.

That's why getwestlondon has compiled a list of Harrow's cleanest takeaways, offering a variety of foods and treats with a guarantee of cleanliness too certified by the Food Standards Agency (FSA)

The FSA's Food Hygiene Rating Scheme helps consumers choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving them information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, takeaways and food shops.

All the ratings included below have been taken from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website and were accurate at the time of writing (May 18, 2017).

We hope your regular pit-stop made the list!
