    Good Initiative?
    Why not telling about the name of the restuarant why hiding name?

    Good work.I have however seen more dirtier restaurants even in the boat basin areaMost restaurants in Karachi or for that matter in the whole country do not comply with basic safety and health standards. Raids should be more frequent and the restaurants should display the clearance certificate that they have approval of the SFA.

    Basically we have lost the value of humanity in our normal lives.
    So playing with this NON PRECIOUS commodity, known as life is not a big thing.
    Buyt then the cycle of life traps these butchers , eventually.

    Its a good start by the food department.Earlier no body use to bother about any thing like this.Just pay to departments and do as you wish was a common practice.At least we heard that food authority also exists.

    A fact that all the above mentioned statements are true. To add to the spice it is the public who is to be blamed as well. Whoever is eating out can be a volunteer health minister. Whenever one visits a diner can demand the hotel management to allow them to visit the kitchen. If they do so willingly then it is a positive sign. In case of resistance or showing reluctancy is no doubt a big doubt! Then we can contact the organization responsible and they can do as required.
    It is the public who needs to be made aware particularly at the present times when flies and mosquitoes are in bundles.
    Best wishes and good luck to all.

    If a food checking authority exists then give them the authority to go and check every eatery in Karachi.
    They should then name and shame them. Fine them heavily and shut them down.
    There needs to be a deterent or else nothing will change.
    Learn from Dubai.

    Firstly, the name of the restaurant?
    Second, check all the road eatery and guide them too on the safety. As we love to eat from the food vendors or tea stalls and so on.

    Could those chemicals be imported from C hni a? They are known to do this. I’m worried for humanity.
