FEHD orders Causeway Bay restaurant to suspend business for 14 days

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Causeway Bay to suspend business for 14 days, as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by illegally extending the food business area.

     The restaurant, located at the ground floor and the outside seating accommodation on the pavement at the shop front of 3 Fuk Hing Lane, was ordered to suspend business from today (June 4) to June 17.

     "This February and April, two convictions for the breach were recorded against the food establishment," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.

     "A total fine of $13,500 was levied by the court and 30 demerit points were registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system. The contraventions resulted in the 14-day business suspension," he added.

     The licensee of the food premises had a record of two convictions for the same offence in May and October last year. A total fine of $9,500 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days in February this year.

     The spokesman reminded licensees of food premises to comply with the FBR, or their licences could be suspended or cancelled.

     Licensed food premises are required to exhibit a sign, at a conspicuous place near the main entrance, indicating that the premises have been licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD's website (
