  3. 3. Chinatown restaurants in hotpot over poor hygiene  The owner of a Melbourne Chinatown restaurant has been fined $40,000 for food, cooking and hygiene conditions a magistrate said "you would not find in a kennel".  Magistrate Lesley Fleming was "sickened" by photographs which showed live and dead cockroaches and rodent droppings.  In 2004, 2 brothers were each fined $10,000 after a customer found a dead cockroach in his meal.  They pleaded guilty to 11 charges that included failing to protect food from contamination and failing to prevent the harbourage of pests.
  4. 4. Restaurant fined for poor hygiene The owners of a popular Chinese restaurant in Hull have been fined for having poor food hygiene practices. China Palace Restaurants Ltd, which operates Mr Chu's China Palace at St Andrew's Quay, was fined a total of £8,000 for a range of offences. During a routine inspection by environmental health officers in September, a number of issues were found including poor cooling practices, with large quantities of duck being found cooling for several hours, risk of cross contamination between foods and no hot water for hand-washing and cleaning. A risk of cross contamination was found during a routine inspection

Dead cockroaches were found on takeaway bags and live ones were found throughout the Bar, a court heard. Council officers told the court they found "poor cleaning, poor repair, poor personal hygiene and poor pest control". A fridge was found to "black with dirt", while inadequately trained staff failed to wash their hands during busy periods. The cafe in Buckingham Palace Road was ordered to pay costs of £2,582.
  6. 6. Curry house fined for poor hygiene During a routine hygiene inspection on the 7 November 2005, environmental health officers had to immediately close down the restaurant after finding evidence of rat droppings in the kitchen. The restaurant was allowed to re-open two days later once they had satisfied officers that all work relating to pest proofing and cleaning had been done. However due to the serious nature of this offence and severe public health implications the Shimla Balti House Limited was taken to court and was fined £7,000 plus £1276 costs.
