Liberty View Chinese close to being shut down?

November 21, 2011

On the Department of Health website listed numerous violations at Liberty View and recommended the establishment be shut down. We called the restaurant and the lady who answered the phone claimed no management was there. She then screamed at us, “Who are you? It is none of your business. Do not call.”
