Curry and mice
Date published: 04 September 2013
THE owner of a “filthy” and “disgusting” restaurant where mouse droppings were found on food, work surfaces and plates, pleaded guilty to four hygiene offences yesterday.
The owner of the Taj Palace Restaurant on King Street, Mohammed Saleem (55), agreed to close the restaurant on May 16 after officers investigating the establishment found the foul conditions, which also included a build-up of grease on the walls and a hole in the kitchen ceiling. The offences, which relate to two visits on March and May of this year, include a failure to put in place and implement food-safety-management systems, deal with an active mouse infestation and keeping the food premises clean and in good repair.
The case was adjourned until October 9 for sentencing.
