Vietnam restaurant throws leftovers at unhappy diners, found operating without food safety certificate

A restaurant in a coastal resort city in south-central Vietnam, notorious for hurling leftovers at unsatisfied diners recently, has not been certified for food safety.

Nhat TrangNhat Trang, the seafood restaurant located in Nha Trang, the capital city of Khanh Hoa Province, proved no certification for food safety, Nguyen Sy Khanh, deputy chairman of the local People’s Committee, said on Wednesday.

An inspection was conducted by local officials under Khanh’s direction the same day.

Neither an authorized qualification related to food safety nor official contracts on laboring of the venue were available, according to the investigation’s result.

Such attempts were made not only in Nha Trang, but throughout the entire province of Khanh Hoa to rectify food service issues, namely price increasing by restaurateurs and lack of ethical manners in serving guests, said Tran Son Hai, deputy chairman of the provincial People’s Committee.

The restaurant was reported to local officials by two diners on Monday after one of its staff members splashed them with leftover food after they expressed disappointment with their meal.
