India Garden on Atwood Street in Oakland was shut down by the Allegheny County Health Department Friday for multiple critical health code violations including a recurring roach infestation and foods being held at unsafe temperatures.
An inspector observed roaches on top of the buffet, on the kitchen floor, among to-go containers and elsewhere, according to the inspection report.
The restaurant had been hit with a Consumer Alert 10 days earlier and was closed following a reinspection because critical food safety violations had not been corrected, the health department said.
Phone calls to the facility today were not picked up.
