DineSafe Toronto

This Week on DineSafe: Amaya Express, Ali Baba's, Daybreak, Golden Griddle, Lahore Grill, McSorely's, New Bagel Boss, Pearl Harbourfront

This week on DineSafe, Amaya Express on Bayview continues its head shake of a health record. After a string of conditional pass reports, the takeout Indian restaurant was finally forced to shut its doors because of an insect infestation. At what point does unacceptable simply become sad? Moving on, Amaya is joined this week by a good number of yellow-flagged compadres, not the least of which include Golden Griddle on College (just in time for back to school!) and Ali Baba's on Queen (another frequent DineSafe delinquent).
