FEHD orders Quarry Bay light refreshment restaurant to suspend business for 14 days

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a light refreshment restaurant in Quarry Bay to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by allowing staff to wash and store food utensils in an alley.

     The restaurant, located on the ground floor at 985 King's Road, was ordered to suspend business from today (December 14) to December 27.

     "In May and October this year, two convictions for the breach were recorded against the food establishment. A total fine of $3,300 was levied by the court and 15 demerit points were registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system. The contraventions resulted in the 14-day business suspension," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.

     The licensee of the food premises had a record of two convictions for allowing staff to wash food utensils in an alley in August last year and April this year. A total fine of $2,100 was levied and 15 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days from June 29 to July 5 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 (
