Super Hong Kong Buffet in Atlanta recently dropped below food safety satisfactory levels twice since January, according to food safety inspection reports.
One of the failing scores came during a follow-up inspection March 20, the other one in Jan. 27. It later corrected all of the infractions, receiving a 99 (A) on Monday, facing two minor new violations.
Super Hong Kong, located at 131 Cone St., suffered a major drop in its scores because of violations related to unclean surfaces, improper date-marking of food items, and a substandard process for washing, rinsing and sanitizing in the three-compartment sink, the reports show.
The inspector also noted the buffet restaurant was also advised that it must “post current permit and last inspections at front entrance” – an infraction that a patron email The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about.
Super Hong Kong’s scores fell from last May’s 96 to a 64 (U) on Jan. 27, a 76 (C) on Feb. 8, a 60 (U) on March 20 and its current 99. As policy goes, it was scheduled for a recheck after its 76, because restaurants face an informal inspection if they score in the C-range. However, the restaurant requested and paid for a new formal inspection, according to Fulton County’s Environmental Health officials.
After the restaurant rebound to its higher level, the manager was not available for response on whether retraining was implemented to ensure the standards are maintained, avoiding more roller-coaster performances.
Here are more recent restaurant inspection scores from across the area.
