Update: The restaurant passed a new inspection with an 88. The inspector noted roach activity throughout, but also that a pest control company treated the business in recent days. Read the new report here.


A popular DeKalb County Chinese restaurant failed its recent health inspection with concerns including insects.

Royal China Restaurant, located at 3295 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, Chamblee, received a 46, according to the report.

The inspector docked the place after seeing employees not wash their hands after “scratching body parts, donning hats, adjusting glasses.”

Some cooked meat was also stored too near raw meat, the inspector found.

A can of Raid was found above the wok cook station.

Dead roaches were found, along with “fly activity” and a live nymph, the report said.

Owner Sam Kong said the issues are all either already fixed of being fixed soon.

“There’s no big, big health issue,” he said. “I don’t argue with the inspector.”
