This week on DineSafe: Pi-Tom's Thai Cuisine, King Tasty BBQ, Kim Vietnamese Restaurant

The DineSafe database certainly burst a bubble for lovers of Thai food this week. Pi-Tom's Thai Cuisine near Yonge and Carlton was closed down after a "failure to prevent gross unsanitary conditions." One can only imagine the specifics of a charge like that. They also had crucial infractions in the food safety department and an unfortunate failure to control a pest situation.

Other restaurants' infractions ran high this week, too, with no fewer than 10 for San Gennaro's Fine Foods and seven each for King Tasty BBQ and Kim Vietnamese Food.
