Norbury restaurant owners to pay out £5,000 over dirty kitchen
A "FILTHY" Norbury restaurant has been forced to fork out almost £5,400 after being taken to court over poor food safety conditions.
Grease-covered surfaces, a dirty washing-up area and cleaning cloths encrusted with dirt were found at the Tandoor Restaurant in London Road when food safety officers visited on March 29 last year.
The officers found no evidence of food safety systems or stock control. No food in the fridges was covered, food was being stored at incorrect temperatures and containers of cooked food were found cooling in the kitchen.
New Tandoor Ltd, which owns the restaurant, admitted charges of having no food-safety management system, untrained and/or unsupervised and uninstructed staff, and poor maintenance and cleaning at Croydon Magistrates' Court on April 3.

The company was fined £2,000, as well as being ordered to pay costs of £3,371.50 and a victim surcharge of £15.
Following the court hearing, New Tandoor Ltd food business operator Mohammed Shafique offered to close the restaurant for two days to undertake cleaning.
But a visit by officers on April 5 found that while some improvements had been made, the premises still failed to meet the required standards.
