Mandarin Palace II in Atlanta scored a 100 (A) on its second follow-up inspection in this month – but not before it dipped further below its unsatisfactory results received on its Dec. 5 routine exam.
After failing with a 60 (U) during the routine visit, the restaurant at 129 North Ave. N.E. dropped to a 22 (U) on its Dec. 12 follow-up. Its grades led to a closure that, in turn, lasted one day, according to the reports.
Mandarin’s infractions include six repeat violations, which normally result in double-point deductions. The repeat citations include noncompliant training of the person in charge, improper storage of foods in the prep cooler and substandard cleaning process for several items and surfaces, the report showed.
Other violations include location of medication and rubbing alcohol next to food, placement of a dirty wiping cloth on food, and storage of food on the floor and under the sink, the report showed.
“Store food 6 inches off the [floor] and do not store food under plumbing – to prevent contamination,” the inspector noted.
Before Mandarin reopened Dec. 13, all violations had to be corrected, and a re-inspection fee was required, the report showed.
The manager was unavailable for comment.
Here are other recent inspection scores from restaurants across the area.
