A Sydney restaurant insists their premises is rodent-free and across safety standards after a video emerged of a large rat in the shop window.
Minto Chinese Restaurant owner Emily Tang told the Macarthur Chronicle pest control officers exterminated the rat on Thursday, which likely entered via a door early in the day.
“Every night we close the door, put down material at the door to stop the rats. We have never ever had any rats like this before,” she said.
“We called the pest control man straight away and got rid of the rat. We have always had a good record with the health inspector.”
Campbelltown Council city development director Jim Baldwin confirmed the restaurant would remain open after pest control attended the property on Thursday.
“A thorough inspection of the premises was conducted and minor corrective actions were suggested that will be followed up by council to ensure that they are addressed appropriately.”
Mr Baldwin said the restaurant provided documents which showed “a good compliance record”, while denying Minto had a rat problem.
