The Health Dept. doesn’t like Sunnyside’s Chinese restaurants—shutting down at least five in just the past three years.
The latest casualty is Sky Taste, located at 45-53 46 Streets, which racked up 57 points and was ordered closed Tuesday.
The restaurant, which has since reopened, was cited for having “live roaches present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas.” Another violation was: “Food source not protected from potential source of contamination during storage, preparation.”
The violations are similar to what its competitors have been closed for. Other Chinese restaurants ordered closed(temporarily) in recent times include:
1) Golden Wok, located at 42-18 43rd Avenue, ordered closed in June 2014 (see story);
2) New Wah Yeung’s Kitchen, located at 43-24 43rd Ave, ordered closed June 2012 (see story);
3) Mr.Wonton Chinese Restaurant, located at 44-11 Queens Blvd, ordered closed in 2010 and May 2012 (see story);
4) Rainbow Chinese Restaurant at 51-21 43rd Avenue, ordered closed Jan. 2013
