Westminster City Council said that its food safety officers are working with Heston Blumenthal's Dinner and Public Health England over a norovirus outbreak at the restaurant.
Test results this week have shown that there has been an outbreak of norovirus at the Dinner restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge.
The operators have now temporarily closed the restaurant and we believe this is the responsible thing to do.
Westminster City Council food safety officers have already carried out a thorough inspection of both the restaurant premises and working practices and will continue to work closely with Public Health England and the restaurant operators until the restaurant is given the all-clear.
