Local Indian Restaurant Shut Down By County Health System

Violations include "cross contamination of cooked food with ready to eat food with raw chicken juices."

San Mateo County Health System inspectors have shut down a local Indian restaurant.

According to the notice, the restaurant’s violations include operating without a health permit, "cross contamination of cooked food with ready to eat food with raw chicken juices," failure to sanitize food contact surfaces and improper cooling of cooked food. The restaurant was also operating without food safety certification.

After being served with the initial notice around noon on Wednesday, the restaurant remained open. Later that day at 6:20 p.m., Environmental Health agents requested the Foster City Police Department's assistance in shutting
down the business, according to FCPD. A second notice was served for "operating without a health permit after the first order was executed."

Tabla served both Northern and Southern Indian cuisine. Specialties included dosa, butter chicken, chicken tikka kabob, chole batura, chicken fire cracker and fish curry.

While the restaurant changed names several times, it has stayed at the same location of 1088C Shell Boulevard in Foster City. The restaurant will remain closed until permission to reopen is given by the Environmental Health Division.
