The health inspector also warned that the size of the kitchen can make a difference on how hygienic the venue’s practices are.  

‘If the kitchen looks really small for the amount of stuff that’s in there, if there are just too many people in that kitchen for its size – don’t eat there,’ she said.

How to spot a dodgy restaurant  

1) A kitchen that is too small

2) ‘Terrible’ lighting

3) Too many people packed into a small space 

‘The possibility of food contamination is very high and hygiene standards very low.

‘All three clues must be identified for that one shop.’   

SemyKitten has previously given her follows insight of how to identify what venues have been fined by health inspectors in the past.

‘Every time a penalty notice is issued by a health inspector, it goes on a database which can be accessed by the general public,’ she said.

Customers can simply google ‘NSW Food Authority name and shame’ before clicking on the ‘penalty notices’ link.

‘The prosecutions are the ones that are really endangering people’s health,’ she said.

Consumers will then be brought to a page where they can look up a particular business or search by postcode. 

‘Health inspectors do not penalise lightly. Treat this as a survival hack,’ she said.
