Some people never learn from past missteps.
Notwithstanding his repeated troublesome experiences with the NYC Health Department, Bollywood actor and Indian restaurateur Shiva Natarajan continues to taunt the hygiene police with his antics.
Our garrulous Shiva’s newest Indian restaurant Bhojan has recently been pulled up by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for not maintaining the toilet properly.
Here’s what the NYC Health Dept said in the inspection report:
Toilet facility not maintained and provided with toilet paper, waste receptacle and self-closing door.
By the way, the new restaurant also scored some violations points with its non-food contact surface but passed the inspection, as per the NYC Health Department report.
Shiva Natarajan Responds:
Despite what the NYC Health Department inspection report says, Bhojan owner Shiva Natarajan claims there was never an issue with toilet paper and the problem was actually with the door-stopper in a toilet not meant for customers in the basement of the restaurant. According to Natarajan, the NYC Health Dept. uses broad categorizations while enumerating violations in the inspection report.
