• New chain restaurant fails health inspection with 36

    By: Carol Sbarge


    FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - A new chain restaurant in Forsyth County failed a health inspection with violations that included flies on food. 

    Bawarchi Biryanis on Peachtree Parkway in Cumming opened in May with a score of 100. 

    The restaurant, which specializes in Indian food, only got a score of 36 on a health inspection Oct. 10. 

    One person Channel 2’s Carol Sbarge talked to says he hadn’t tried the restaurant yet, but if he sees a 36, he is definitely eating somewhere else.


    The violations included numerous flies on cooked chicken and other food, bags of chicken and goat without USDA labels and flies that were present throughout the kitchen and dining area. 

    No one at Bawarchi Biryanis would comment on what they are doing to correct the violations. 

    Darylique Whitley, a potential customer, says when she walks into a restaurant, she wants to see a score of 100, or at least 90. 

    In Georgia, 70 and above is passing. 

    The Forsyth County health inspector will do a re-inspection this month. We’ll let you know what the new score is.
