A Chinatown restaurant shutdown after some camera un-shy rats appeared in the front window is now under renovations.
Toronto Public Health officials confirmed yesterday Happy Seven restaurant is undergoing renovations before inspectors conduct a final re-inspection of the Spandina Ave. eatery.
Jim Chan, manager of public health's food safety program, said the owners are cooperating with health inspectors.
Happy Seven was closed a week ago when rats were spotted in the front window for the second day in a row. The second sighting was captured live on CityTV.
Since the closure public health has been blitzing restaurants in the area.
That resulted in the shutdown of another restaurant Monday.
According to the city's DineSafe program website, Swatow Restaurant at 309 Spadina Ave. was closed Tuesday for failing to prevent an insect infestation and failing to provide adequate pest control, among other infractions.
