Roach problem at popular Japanese Steakhouse

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) The Department of Health and Environmental Control inspectors found a roach problem at one well-known Japanese Steakhouse. According the DHEC report, inspectors found roaches, both dead and alive, at Yamato Japanese Steakhouse and mainly inside of the kitchen.  

This is considered a critical violation by DHEC and Yamato has been asked to clean as needed and to contact a pest control company.

The report also indicates stored food was found uncovered and inspectors noted the restaurant had dirty utensils, pots, pans, slicers, knives and cutting board.

Restaurant management says Yamato already has a pest control company coming in next Tuesday and their staff is working on correcting everything inspectors noted on the report. DHEC's follow-up inspection has been scheduled for next Friday.

DHEC inspectors visited another Japanese style restaurant in Myrtle Beach this week. Tokyo Japanese Hibachi had a routine inspection and the restaurant has been ordered to do some work in the kitchen.

The report shows inspectors have asked the restaurant's staff to clean the ice machine, storage shelves, coolers, floors, and walls. DHEC inspectors also cited them for incorrectly labeling food products or not labeling them at all.

Management for Tokyo Japanese Hibachi was not available for comment.  The restaurant also received an ‘A' rating and a score of 88. DHEC has scheduled a follow up inspection for next Tuesday to see if those violations have been fixed.
