Khushie Indian Kitchen Shuttered by Health Department

City health inspectors shut down Khushie Indian Kitchen on Essex Street yesterday.

Khushie Indian Kitchen, a tiny storefront at 139 Essex St. that does a big delivery and takeout business, was shuttered by the health department after an inspection yesterday. The restaurant was cited for seven sanitary violations, four of them ranked “critical.” Those included inadequate prevention of food contamination and the presence or evidence of rats. Less serious violations noted problems with the sewage disposal system and other plumbing issues.
