The eatery, located at 36-02 36 Avenue, was cited for multiple sanitary violations including evidence of live roaches and flies and improperly cleaned surfaces.

The DOH inspected the restaurant on Aug 29.

The restaurant serves mainstream Thai food, from Pad Thai to curry dishes.  It opened in 2014 after gaining a large following selling its food from a truck.

The following violations were found at the premises, with the first five labeled “critical.”

4) Filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas. Filth flies include house flies, little house flies, blow flies, bottle flies and flesh flies. Food/refuse/sewage-associated flies include fruit flies, drain flies and Phorid flies.

5) Food contact surface not properly washed, rinsed and sanitized after each use and following any activity when contamination may have occurred.

6) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
