A Chinese restaurant in Tucker has failed two health inspections in a row, county records show.

The restaurant’s permit was briefly suspended during the Nov. 28 inspection and reinstated after some issues were fixed, the report said. Issues including not having soap at the employee handwashing sink, boxes on top of a handwashing sink and dishes stored in a vegetable sink were all fixed while the inspector was at the restaurant, according to the report.

Frozen raw chicken was thawing at room temperature on a food prep table in the kitchen and raw beef and raw scallops were stored over ready-to-eat foods in a cooler, the report said. Discard times were not marked for chicken wings, egg rolls and chicken.
