YORKVILLE — An Indian restaurant on Second Avenue was shuttered by the Department of Health this week for having evidence of mice and not keeping its food at proper temperatures, records show. 

Mughlai Indian Cuisine, at 1724 Second Ave. and East 90th Street, was closed Wednesday after inspectors found evidence of mice or live mice, as well as food not being refrigerated. 

Employees also did not protect food from a potential source of contamination, records show.

The restaurant was slapped with a total of 65 violation points.

Mughlai, which bills itself as a "golden taste of India," serves up traditional Indian dishes and has a second location in Kips Bay at 329 Third Ave.

While the restaurant was still shuttered as of Friday at lunchtime, a health department spokeswoman said the space passed its reinspection that afternoon and was permitted to reopen.
