Update: The restaurant has passed a re-inspection with an 87. Read the report: here.
A DeKalb County Japanese restaurant failed its recent health inspection after dead roaches were reportedly found in the kitchen, on food prep surfaces, shelves and the floor.
Yanmi Yanmi, located in the Atlanta Chinatown development on New Peachtree Road in Chamblee, received a 52 on Thursday, according to the inspector’s report.
A message left with the restaurant Friday wasn’t immediately returned.
The report lists numerous issues, including raw beef and seafood stored together, dirty knives stored with clean utensils, foods stored at the wrong temperatures and equipment in disrepair.
“Several surfaces were observed containing excessive dust, grease and dead cockroaches,” the report said. “Several fruit flies were observed in and around the hand sink.”
Restaurants that fail are typically reinspected within 10 days.
