Manchester restaurant fined £10,000 for food safety breaches

An Indian restaurant on Manchester's "Curry Mile" has been fined £10,000 after health inspectors found kitchens in a filthy state.

The New Tabak restaurant, in Rusholme, pleaded guilty to breaches of the food hygiene regulations during a hearing before magistrates in Manchester.

The court heard that environmental health officers had visited the premises to find the bodies of dead mice among kitchen equipment and other serious breaches of the hygiene regulations.

The restaurant was ordered to close for a deep clean before being allowed to open again.

However, another inspection some months later showed that conditions had once again deteriorated with further evidence of rodent infestation leading to possible food contamination.

Restaurant manager Gopal Dangol was fined an additional £700 with £790 costs. The restaurant was also ordered to pay £800 costs.
