Curry Leaf Indian Grill at 3000 Windy Hill Road Suite 128 received a 67, or U, on its Oct. 2 inspection conducted by the Cobb & Douglas Public Health Department.
It’s the restaurant’s second consecutive failure on a routine inspection. Curry Leaf received a 64 on its May 1, 2018, inspection. It performed marginally better on a May 18, 2018, follow-up inspection when it received a score of 78, or C.
The restaurant voluntarily closed Oct. 2 to correct the violations and to attend a conference Thursday morning to discuss a corrective action plan, according to the inspector's report.
According to the Oct. 2 report, an employee handled trash and then touched red beans that were soaking on a table without washing his or her hands. An employee rinsed his or her hands at a sink without using soap. The inspector also noted the restaurant did not have any paper towels at the hand sink.
The restaurant also had buckets of soaking rice and tamarind that were stored uncovered on the floor next to the dish washing machine.
Curry Leaf was also cited for having cold food items stored above 41 degrees inside a cooler, rice stored overnight in a rice cooker that was not measuring at 135 degrees and ready-to-eat food that was stored for more than 24 hours inside the cooler without being marked with a date.
A follow-up inspection will be held within 10 business days of the original inspection. An employee who answered the phone Thursday told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that a manager was not available to discuss the score.
