Two Barwa Village eateries closed by Qatar food inspectors

Rotten fruit and vegetables, expired food, moldy chopping boards and dirty floors prompted health inspectors to close two eateries in Barwa Village this week.

Chinese restaurant Beijing House has been shut for 30 days for selling food unfit for human consumption, according to the notification by the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME).

It was closed on Aug. 15 following a spot-check by inspectors.


Photos published on Baladiya’s website show moldy food, frozen meat and seafood that was past its use-by date and chickens only partly wrapped in plastic bags and stored in a chiller.

A Beijing House representative confirmed to Doha News that it had been closed as part of a wider inspection of eateries at Barwa Village in the last week.
