    I can’t wait to try Ru San’s latest creation, the spore roll.

    That rusan’s in midtown is dirty and smelly, always. 52 doesn’t surprise me at all. The one on Windy Hill is always very hot inside, making me believe the fish can’t be very good. The only Rusan’s I will consider eating at is the one in Buckhead since it’s at least clean and cool inside.

    The last time I ate at the Ru San’s in Buckhead they had to delay seating people because the health inspector was there and he made them toss out a bunch of stuff on the AYCE sushi bar. Their sushi is just OK and it always has me in the bathroom no less than an hour after consumption.

    Youre score for ALOHA is nothing but lies and bad promotion for your website. I am adding a link to the actual score fore ALOHA. My best friend works there and is not fair that your website is spreading lies about legit and good restaurants.

      Hi Zan, that score was taken from Fulton County’s website. Try again.

    Zan, looks like the shot you have is of the follow up visit on 3/2, you need to read the details on the first one. They opted not to voluntarily close, but to have a follow up inspection. They still had an abominable score on the previous visit.

    Did you notice how in the photo that Zan posted, the previous (failing) scores have been photoshopped out ?

    Where the hell is Tech Diner? The address listed, 531 10th St., looks like the park or Grady HS.

    Some of these have 2011 as the date? Is that right…?

    I see Broadway Diner recently got a score of 100 on 3/6/12 see this website: http://midtown.patch.com/articles/broadway-diner-aces-health-inspection
    The date you have for them above is from 2/24/11. Over a year ago.

    Also the Metro Cafe says 2011.

    Aloha isn’t good and it is expensive for what you get. Considering it now also potentially comes with a side of potential foodborne illness, I’ll pass.

    hi mariah, clearly you don’t know how to read these reports. look for the words “inspection date.” all of these records are from february, 2012. the dates you’re looking at are old scores from 2011.

    I can clearly read, maybe you can’t type :P
    I didn’t actually look at the reports (I don’t eat at those places) I just read the headlines above the report. Next time I will not point mistakes out, I do love your website! :)
