Orlando restaurant ranked in Yelp’s top 100 fails second health inspection this year

An Orlando restaurant that was ranked among Yelp’s top 100 restaurants in the state of Florida for 2022, was forced to temporarily close its doors for the second time this year after a health inspector cited a dozen and a half violations.

Mee Thai, which is located at 1200 Lee Road in Orlando, was forced to temporarily close on Tuesday, August 30, after a health inspector with the Florida Department of Professional and Business Regulation cited 18 health code violations, including 5 labeled high priority.

Among the violations was the presence of rodents, as evidenced by 28 rodent droppings that were found around the kitchen and restaurant. Additionally, the inspector noted that there was an accumulation of green mold in an ice machine, and that a dish-machine chlorine sanitizer was not at the proper minimum strength.

The restaurant was permitted to open the following day, Wednesday, August 31, after the inspector cited only four violations.

It is the second such closure over the past four months, as the restaurant was also closed in May after an inspector cited similar violations, including the presence of roach activity.

In June, Mee Thai was named by Yelp as number 43 on a list of 100 of the best restaurants in Florida.
