BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Public health inspectors have closed a longtime Boise restaurant after experiencing a sewage backup.

The Idaho Statesman ( ) reports that Siam Thai restaurant has had its restaurant's license temporarily suspended by the Central District Health Department.

According to the health department, a clogged grease trap triggered the backup which resulted in sewage spilling into the alley. Inspectors also found an improperly functioning toilet and a pest control problem.

Siam Thai restaurant has been operating in Boise since the 1970s, but it has moved in different locations.

A sign on Siam's restaurant door says it's closed. Tables, chairs and other equipment have been removed.
