• Long-time Chinese restaurant fails inspection for second time


    ATLANTA - A long-time Atlanta restaurant has failed its restaurant inspection for the second time in three months.

    Bamboo Luau's Chinatown has been open on Cheshire Bridge Road in Atlanta for more than 26 years, but in the last few months they've struggled with their inspections.

    After getting a 58 in July, which is unsatisfactory, the restaurant was court-ordered to have six followup inspections.

    On the first inspection in August, they received an 87, which is a B. In September, they got an 86. But on the third inspection, they failed with a 64.

    Some of the violations this time included no soap or paper towels at the kitchen hand sink, observed food stored in standing water in prep cooler and observed raw meat stored above and next to vegetables improperly.

    No one from the restaurant would talk Channel 2 Action News on camera, but they did tell us they are following up and are fixing the problems.

    A customer said the latest failing score won't keep him away.

    “I’ve been coming here for 12 years now and never got sick,” the customer said.

    Bamboo Luau's Chinatown scored the 64 on Monday. They will be re-inspected within 10 days of that date.

    One of the violations this time was the last inspection score sheet was not posted. Georgia restaurants are required to post their current inspection scores in a visible location.
