Is this Croydon’s filthiest restaurant?

Strong story from the Croydon Guardian, following the admission of guilt in court last week of the two men who run the Safi-Tix Noodle Bar in West Croydon.

The real scandal, surely, is that this restaurant remains open, despite admitting three counts of violating food hygiene regulations in a case that stretches back (as far as we know) to last year.

According to the Croydon Guardian, “Lalbaz Safi from Croydon, and manager Fung Tiang Lim, pleaded guilty at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on Friday to three charges of violating food hygiene regulations.”

Their restaurant will remain open at least until November 26, when Safi and Lim have a magistrates’ court hearing to make a case for the restaurant to stay open.

Perhaps if the people of Croydon give the place a wide berth – in enlightened self-interest to avoid the possibility of catching a horrendous case of food poisoning, or worse –  the place might close for lack of business.
