The Crownery

A Hockessin-area Chinese restaurant has been shut down by state health officials.

The Delaware Division of Public Health closed The Crownery in Lantana Square Shopping Center on July 10, 2019, over unsanitary conditions.

A DPH report said inspectors found dead roaches, live maggots, and mouse droppings inside the restaurant.

The restaurant must do a thorough cleaning and sanitize itself before it can reopen.
