Health inspectors have forced a Vietnamese restaurant in east London to close after finding a dead rat under the cooker and droppings spread around the kitchen.
Environmental Health Officers carried out a routine inspection of Cu Tu in Dalston last Friday and found:
- Rat droppings on the floor, on food packaging and shelving
- Gnawed packaging and scraps of nesting material
- The kitchen was filthy with encrusted dirt and grime
Cu Tu was ordered to pay Hackney Council £620 in court costs and will stay closed until the council is satisfied the risk to the public is removed.
