The last few times we spoke to NYC Indian restaurateur Satinder Sharma, a.k.a. Sati the man seemed to delight in badmouthing his rival desi restaurateur, the Bollywood star Shiva Natarajan (crocodile in the pond, very insecure, bad execution of Dhaba, anger management issues, a whiner et al were some of the juicy epithets Sati hurled at Shiva) or bragging about how much $$ he’d spent on cleaning up the basement of his flagship Brick Lane Curry House Indian restaurant on E.6th St in New York City or blowing his own trumpet (‘what I’m doing is right‘).
Oh wait, on one occasion the fella also went on and on ad nauseum ad infinitum about his obsession with hygiene at his restaurants, a fixation Sati proudly claimed to have picked up from his early days working on a cruise ship.
Folks, like a lot of desis this Sati fella is big on blah blah blah but seems low on action.
You see the New York City Health Department has recently put out a nasty report on Sati’s Brick Lane Curry Indian restaurant.
And the report is so damaging that if we were Sati Sharma, we’d be desperately looking for a tall building.
Brick Lane – Fails NYC Health Inspection
Sati, it’s time to cut the badmouthing, stop the bragging and clean up your shithole Brick Lane Curry, which failed the recent NYC Health inspection.
Focus on the appalling lack of hygiene at your flagship Indian restaurant in the U.S. – Brick Lane Curry House on E.6th St.
Guys, if any of you plan to dine at Sati’s Brick Lane Curry on E.6th St in Manhattan forget not these unhygienic issues pointed out in the NYC Health Dept inspection report of November 12:
* Brick Lane has evidence of, or live mice in facility’s food and/ or non-food areas
* Brick Lane has evidence of, or live rats in facility’s food and/ or non-food areas
* Brick Lane is not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to vermin infestation exist
* Sanitized equipment or utensil, including in-use food dispensing utensil, improperly used or stored at Brick Lane
* Food at Brick Lane is not protected from potential source of contamination during storage, preparation, transportation, display or service
* Sewage disposal system at Brick Lane is in disrepair or not functioning properly
We don’t know about y’all but all that news about vermin, rats and mice issues in an Indian restaurant sure kills our appetite for curry. 🙁
Just in case you are wondering there are more sanitary violations at Brick Lane Curry besides the ones we listed above.
Sati, while you are cleaning up your Brick Lane Curry shithole you might also want to train the imbecile waiters you hire to work at your restaurant.
The last time we were at Brick Lane Curry one of your moronic waiters poured tap water into our glass of $5 sparkling water! 🙁
No Whining, Please
Now, Sati. Don’t you dare whine about this post.
After all, you did tell us in one of our conversations that when it comes to hygiene issues:
Be completely merciless. Even when it comes to me.
We hope we’ve lived up to your ‘merciless’ request. 😉
Brick Lane passed the NYC Health inspection on December 28, 2009 but the restaurant’s sewage disposal system is in disrepair or not functioning properly. There are other sanitary violations as well.
