Asian buffet reinspected after low grade

Food For Thought

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A number of critical issues regarding management supervision, food protection, and food safety are noted in the inspection report at this North Knoxville restaurant.

China Wok Buffet, 5453 Washington Pike – Grade: 84 New Grade: 99

China Wok Buffet received a passing score however, risk factors were noted in the report.

When the inspector asked the person in charge, the manager at China Wok, about his knowledge of health rules and regulations, the inspector writes, he was unaware of them. Managers are supposed to know the regulations so they can inform their staff about them.

Apparently, the person washing pots did not know that he was also supposed to rinse and sanitize them as well, which he had not done. At the three compartment sink, where pots pans and other utensils are washed cleaned and sanitized, the sink was not set up properly.

The inspector also found there were incorrect time records kept at the sushi bar. As a result, some of the sushi was thrown away.

A few weeks later China Wok was reinspected. Their new grade is a 99.

K-Town Tavern, 320 N. Peters Road – Grade: 82 New Grade: 96

Last week, it was reported that K-Town Tavern on North Peters Road was graded an 82, which is a passing score. When the inspector returned, the critical violations were corrected. Their new grade is a 96.
