Restaurant inspections, Zafraan Restaurant

An Indian restaurant in south Forsyth County has some work to do to pull up a recent failing health score.

Zafraan Restaurant, 2255 Calloway Court, Cumming, received a 49/U on a routine inspection in late January because the restaurant needed cleaning and the inspector observed both dead and live roaches in the facility.

The cooking equipment was filthy inside, the inspector said. Also, the walls were dirty, the floor in the cooking area had food debris and grease, and the food shelves and carts also needed cleaning.

The inspector said there was a roach on the lid of a rice flour bin, a dead roach in the bin of clean utensils and three live roaches in the back hallway. She also found two cans of Raid and one can of Hot Shot insecticide, both of which are unapproved for food service use.

Only commercial exterminating services are allowed for pest control.

In other violations, food on the buffet was not protected by a sneeze shield, and the food containers were not covered. Food in the walk-in cooler was also subject to contamination. The inspector said there were 15 containers of uncovered food in the cooler, and none of them had date labels, either.

Chicken was being thawed in tepid water in a sink. It was discarded by the owner. Some rice was also thrown away because it had not been cooled down to the proper temperature within a safe amount of time.

Zafraan was able to make the needed improvements and earned an 85/B on a follow-up health inspection Feb. 1. Restaurant management was not available for comment despite numerous attempts.
