The Beijing Sanitation Supervision Bureau has revealed that a higher standard for operating medium and small restaurants will be implemented soon in Beijing.
The minimum restaurant area will be changed from 50 sq m to 80 sq m and the restaurants with areas under 50 sq m will be transformed to other businesses.

Dirty kitchens, filthy dishware, and alck of trained staff have led to health risks and business problems.
