Roaches temporarily close Indian restaurant in Winter Park

A Winter Park restaurant specializing in Indian cuisine was recently forced to close its doors after roaches were found during several health inspections.

On Wednesday, June 12, Mynt Indian Cuisine (535 W New England Avenue, Suite 100 in Winter Park) was temporarily shut down after the restaurant failed a health inspection conducted by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

During that initial inspection, the eatery was cited for 15 health code violations, including four that were considered high priority, according to a report from the department.

In the report, the health inspector noted that a total of seven live roaches were spotted in the restaurant near the walk-in cooler. Additionally, two dead roaches were also found in a nearby sink.

Other violations listed in the report include: several food items (cooked potatoes, lamb, chicken, rice pudding, tomatoes, and onion gravy) being stored at temperatures exceeding 41 degrees; the dishwasher’s chlorine sanitizer being below the proper minimum strength; and plastic spoons in the buffet area not being stored properly to prevent contamination.

The restaurant remained closed, and a follow-up inspection was conducted on Thursday, June 13. During that visit, the health inspector observed a total of 10 violations, including the presence of nearly a dozen live roaches and seven dead roaches.

On Friday, June 14, the health inspector returned to the eatery and spotted three live roaches, which were killed by an employee.

Later that same day, the health inspector noted in the report that there was no further roach activity inside the restaurant. As a result, Mynt Indian Cuisine met all inspection standards and was permitted to reopen.
