A picture posted on the Thai Hana¬†Facebook page¬†states that the restaurant planned on closing for three days to address “plumbing issues that will require extensive repair,” although it appears this isn’t the only reason for temporary closure.

Thai Hana is well known around Pitt’s campus, with most reviews of the food being quite stellar. The new Allegheny County Health Department report could harm the reputation of the restaurant.

Thai Hana isn’t the only Oakland restaurant recently to come under fire. Last November, Las Palmas on Atwood was forced to close due to a number of food safety violations

After reopening in early 2017 they were hit with yet another ACHD consumer alert as many violations were found during “a follow-up inspection after the December 7 re-opening from the previous closure.”
