Health department revokes license of Dublin restaurant

The Columbus Public Health Department revoked the license of a Dublin restaurant and warned a downtown Columbus eatery to clean up its act.

Haveli Express, 5720 Frantz Road, Columbus, had its license revoked after months of failing to correct critical violations. Over a nine-month period, inspectors cited the restaurant for 76 violations.

Violations such as:

  • Having inadequate hot water
  • Serving food from unapproved sources
  • Failing to prevent cross-contamination

A Columbus Public Health spokesperson told NBC 4’s Tom Sussi that the business has 30 days to file an appeal with either the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas or the Environmental Division of Franklin County Municipal Court.

In another case, the health department placed The Belmont Deli, 330 West Spring Street, under close monitoring after the restaurant accumulated 30 critical violations over nine inspections this year.

Violations include:

  • Improper cooling
  • Packaged and unpackaged food not protected from cross-contamination
  • Food not properly date-marked
