The cleanliness of thousands of restaurants, takeaways and shops in Glasgow can now be checked online.
A database has been created listing every business in the city selling food – around 5500 premises – showing the result of food hygiene inspections.
The city council, working with the Food Standards Agency, hopes the public will check the performance of their favourite eateries and even consult the ratings before booking a table.
Each outlet has been given one of two ratings – pass or improvement required – based on the most recent visit by environmental health and food safety officers.
Pass marks mean a premises has met the legal requirements and management procedures for providing safe food.
Failure to meet those requirements means an "improvement required" certificate is issued.
The aim is to give customers clear guidance about premises which sell food, from restaurants and takeaways to supermarkets and corner shops.
Initially around 1200 premises in the city centre and West End were included in the scheme but now the whole city is covered.
The scheme was launched by Ruth Simpson, convener of the council's sustainability and environment policy committee.
She said: "This scheme is all about putting information into the hands of the consumer and letting them reward the best performers with their custom.
"There is a real advantage there for businesses that are taking the safety of their customers seriously."
The new website was unveiled in Mister Singh's India in Elderslie Street, which was one of the first winners of an environmental business award.
Along with Balbir's, KoolBa and Mother India's Cafe, it helped Glasgow win the title Curry Capital of Britain 2010, its record-breaking fourth win in a decade.
