Restaurant inspections, Tasty Curry

A take-out Indian restaurant in south Atlanta saw a dramatic drop in its health score after an inspector found rat droppings on dry storage shelving.

Tasty Curry, 1550 Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, received a failing score of 46/U.

The facility was marked down for other signs of uncleanliness, too. The inspector noted food debris on the floor underneath cooking equipment, and a buildup of food debris on non-food contact surfaces.

And food prep counters, equipment and utensils were not sanitized, the Fulton County Health inspector noted.

Points were also deducted from the overall health score because the facility had no thermometer to measure food temperatures. When the inspector took temperature readings some of the cold foods were not within the proper range for food safety.

Among other code violations, some food containers were uncovered in the reach-in cooler, prepared foods were not marked with a disposal date and the inspector said raw meats were stored over ready-to-eat foods.

One employee was observed switching from prepping raw food to ready-to-eat food without washing their hands. And another employee was not wearing a hair restraint.

Tasty Curry had a previous routine health score of 93/A after opening in September. It will be re-inspected this week, said manager Prohaladh Paul.

“Of course we can get the score back up,” Paul said. “Everything is already done.”

In other news, a recently reviewed Mexican restaurant in Doraville, El Autentico Sinaloense, 5303 Buford Highway, scored an 84/B on a follow-up inspection.
