This hasn’t been a good month for Upper West Side Thai restaurants. A couple of weeks ago, Talé Thai on Columbus and 84th closed after just one year. And just this week, Thai Season on 89th and Amsterdam was closed down by the Health Department. It gets very mixed reviews on Yelp, with multiple reviewers even complaining that it’s a Chinese restaurant masquerading as a Thai joint.
Apparently, the health inspector found some little critters, along with other violations:
1) Hot food item not held at or above 140º F.
2) Live roaches present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas.
3) Tobacco use, eating, or drinking from open container in food preparation, food storage or dishwashing area observed.
4) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
5) Plumbing not properly installed or maintained; anti-siphonage or backflow prevention device not provided where required; equipment or floor not properly drained; sewage disposal system in disrepair or not functioning properly.
THIS S..HOLE RESTRAUNT TOOK THE PLACE OF A LONG TIME WELL LIKED BODEGA..AND THE CHINESE TAKE OUT NEXT DOOR NAMED SPICE(WHICH IS THE SAME OWNER) IS A HEALTH HAZARD.
I hate this entire row of restaurants – It’s dirty and the food is subpar — Agree with Bill
