DineSafe Toronto

This Week on DineSafe: Brass Taps, Manchu Wok, Ooh La La, Roncy's Bean, Sarah's Shawarma, Souvlaki Express, Swiss Chalet, The Court Jester

This week on DineSafe, a couple national chains had a rough go of it. Manchu Wok at 20 Bloor East was slapped with a whopping nine infractions after inspection, and the Swiss Chalet on Bayview in North York was ultimately shut down after failing to maintain premises "free of sewage back-up." You've ruined the Festive Special forever, Bayview Swiss Chalet.

Moving south, the venerable Sarah's Shawarma, known for its cheap and delicious shawarma and falafel sandwiches, was snagged on a couple of conditions and given a yellow pass, as was a new Roncy Cafe erected in the former home of an (unwelcome) Second Cup. Rounding out the list are a couple of neighbourhood watering holes, a souvlaki spot, and a place to eat "wholesome" down on Front. Here are just a few of the fails and almost-fails on DineSafe this week.
