The restaurant was slapped a $60,000 fine in November for two counts of handling and selling unsafe food.

It has since closed.

As has Kelvin Grove’s Little Lily Thai Restaurant, which was fined $32,500 in February on 29 offences, including animal and pest infestation, food storage, cleanliness and failure to comply with an improvement notice.

The inner city was not without its offenders either.

Rats were discovered in the kitchen of Japanese Bento in the Myer Centre food hall, which formed part of a raft of charges that earned it a $25,000 fine in November.

Also in the Myer Centre, the Beach House Bar and Grill copped a $30,000 fine on eight charges stemming from failed standards of food storage, cleanliness and maintenance.

Animals and pests were also found in the kitchen.

The restaurant’s four directors were also hit with fines, two for $2500 and two for $1500.

Just a little more than a block away, the Macarthur Centre’s Shingle Inn received a $20,000 fine in June, on 12 charges including animal and pet infestation and failure to maintain cleanliness.

In addition, its two directors each received $4000 fines.

Cr Adams said 23 food licenses were suspended and six cancelled last year, from more than 6000 inspections undertaken by EatSafe officers in kitchens across the city.

“We aim not to shut down restaurants, unless there is a serious issue,” she said.

“But we make no apology for shutting down restaurants for the safety of Brisbane residents.”

Fine revenue from hygiene breaches has risen dramatically since the introduction of the EatSafe program in 2010, despite its star-rating system cutting the number of inspections carried out.

In 2010, 14 food vendors were fined for safety breaches, reaping nearly $340,000 in fine revenue.

Cr Adams said the number of prosecutions has remained steady since the introduction of the program but there had been a number of hefty fines imposed by the courts last year.  

EatSafe’s star rating system sees restaurants that earn three, four, or five star ratings inspected less frequently than those on two stars or less.

Cr Adams said the system enabled council resources to be channelled into working with lower rated establishments to ensure they were compliant.   

In 2013/14 more than 90 per cent of Brisbane’s restaurants and food outlets had attained a three star rating or higher.
