Restaurant Inspections, Sabri Kabab House

Sabri Kabab House in Norcross offers some of Atlanta’s best Pakistani food, according to diners who rave about its authentic hot and spicy cuisine. The obscurely placed restaurant shares space with a gas station at 6075 Singleton Road.

Usually the restaurant has a decent health score, but it had a few problems with insects and temperature controls during a recent routine inspection and was given a failing score of 49 out of 100.

A dead fly was found in some beef being stored on a shelf at room temperature. A dead beetle was observed in a container of karahi gosht, a traditional Pakistani main dish, being kept in a walk-in cooler. These foods were discarded.

Other cooked food was thrown away because it had been inside a walk-in cooler held at the wrong temperature for more than six hours. Manager Arshi Syad said the cooler was not regulating the temperature properly and that cost the restaurant 20 points during the inspection.

“We got the cooler fixed and everything should be fine,” Syad said.

Among other health code violations, there was no food thermometer to measure the temperatures of individual sausages and chicken breasts cooked on-site. Also, food in the prep cooler wasn’t being held at 41 degrees or below, and the restaurant had no time controls or documentation for temperature readings.

Bare hands were used to remove bread from the oven, and to handle cooked rice. And an employee was observed using the same gloves to handle dirty dishes and clean dishes, according to the report.

Sabri Kabab House will have a follow-up inspection by the East Metro Health District. Its previous score was an 84/B.

Another recently reviewed restaurant brought its failing score up to a B during a follow-up inspection. Rosebud, 1397 N. Highland Ave., Atlanta, was given an 83 by a Fulton County Health and Wellness inspector on June 13.
