FEHD orders restaurant in Sha Tin to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Sha Tin to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally.
     The restaurant, Thai Like Kitchen, located on the ground floor of 14 Ha Keng Hau Village, Sha Tin, was ordered to suspend business from today (August 9) to August 22.
     "In May this year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the operator of the restaurant. A total fine of $18,000 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," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
     The licensee of the restaurant had a record of two convictions for the same offence in July and August last year. A total fine of $8,000 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days in November last 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 (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
