Insect in food infuriates customer

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) on Tuesday received a complaint on unhygienic food being served in a high profile restaurant, from a customer who complained of finding a live insect in the ‘biryani’ being served by the hotel.

The customer, B.Kiran Goud, reportedly visited the restaurant ‘Ulavacharu’ in Jubilee Hills, along with his relative Shankar Goud on Tuesday afternoon and ordered for biryani along with mutton fry.


“During second serving, we noticed that a live insect crawled out of the biryani, even as the captain who was serving us tried to remove it. We photographed and videographed it, so that we could prove our claim. Despite long wait, nobody from the restaurant turned up, and a captain-rank employee answered carelessly when questioned,” complained Mr.Kiran Goud.

They lodged a complaint with the Food Safety Wing of the GHMC by posting the images through social media application.

Complaint received

“We have received a complaint about unhygienic food, and will inspect the restaurant in a couple of days,” said in-charge Assistant Food Controller of the civic body Sudarshan Reddy.

When sought his version, owner of the upmarket restaurant Vijay Reddy refuted the customer’s charges and said that it was an attempt to malign the name of the restaurant.
