Restaurant inspections, Grand Asian Buffet

An Asian restaurant near Kennesaw State University still has a problem with roaches, but was allowed to re-open last week after passing its latest health inspection. It had been closed because of two previous failing inspections this month.

Grand Asian Buffet, 2821 Chastain Meadows, Marietta, scored an 86/B but management was warned to keep the facility clean and get rid of roaches. Both dead and live roaches were found in the food prep and server stations during the Oct. 9 follow-up inspection.

An earlier inspection Oct. 4 found plenty of roaches and other pests. The restaurant scored a 47/U.

There was a roach in the bulk sugar, a bug inside some melted margarine, roaches and gnats inside boxes of raw potatoes in the kitchen, live and dead roaches in the sushi bar, in stir fry pans, on the floor and shelves in the kitchen and other food prep areas, according the report.

Roaches were also observed around the hibachi grill during an Oct. 1 routine inspection when Grand Asian Buffet scored a 51/U.

The restaurant is now on a twice-monthly schedule with a professional pest service. In addition, managers must follow a set cleaning schedule for the facility.

During the Oct. 4 inspection, mold was found in two ice machines and on two cutting boards at the sushi prep area. The hibachi grill had grease and food accumulation. The stir fry area also had food debris, and the fry pans and grill surface were rusted.

Grand Asian Buffet was cleaner during its last inspection, but some grease build-up remained on non-food contact surfaces, according to the Cobb and Douglas Health inspector.

Despite several attempts to contact, the restaurant’s manager was unavailable for comment.
