Restaurant invites us back after better inspections

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

No restaurant wants to be on the NBC12 Restaurant Report for having critical violations. An Indian restaurant in Henrico was on the list last summer for five critical violations. So they invited On Your Side Investigator us back to show us they've cleaned up their act.

You may remember Paradise Biryani Pointe at 3621 Cox Rd. in Henrico on our report last summer with five critical violations. Owner Ram Madhula says they've earned much better inspection scores since then, including a perfect score.

"I fixed all the things within the same week," said Madhula. "I made sure I don't have any issues."

Madhula says he attended Henrico County's ServSafe class. "I did the course. After completing the course, I was able to see what things I need to be correcting here."

He says he retrained the staff how to make sure food stays the proper temperature, how to prevent pests, and how to keep the kitchen, equipment and dishes clean.

Madhula installed cameras throughout the kitchen so he can see what's going on when he's not at the restaurant and make sure everything is being done properly. He can call up each camera shot on his iPhone for a bird's eye view.

Madhula invites new customers to try the restaurant's authentic Indian cuisine. "We cook everything form scratch, any order. We take 15 minutes, we cook it from scratch," he said.

Moving to this week's Restaurant Report, Panda Garden at 948 West Grace Street in Richmond usually earns better inspection scores. But it had five critical problems on its last inspection. The report says pots, bowls, a colander, and lexan pans were soiled to sight and touch. The good news? The report says that and other violations were corrected while the inspector was still on site.
