Environmental Health Officers first visited the restaurant in 2016 after a party was affected allegedly from food poisoning because of the meals being served on uncleaned boards.

In another visit by health officers in 2016 December, they found an improvement in food handling situations but they found that wooden boards were still being used.

Other than food serving on boards, health officers showed concern over poor hygiene of the restaurant and chefs and servers relying on disposable gloves more than washing hands.

Employees responsible for cleanliness also did not use the sanitising chemical which should be used for cleaning as recommended by the manufacturer of the serving wooden boards.
