China Star Super Buffet was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District on May 24, after an imminent health hazard was discovered during a routine inspection.
Their not so super report was headlined by SNHD finding "sewage or liquid waste was not disposed of in an approved manner," an instant cause for closure. 30 additional demerits were cited for violations as diverse as pest control, food protected from contamination and proper storage temperatures. The sushi side of the buffet was separately inspected and logged 20 demerits including further issues concerning waste, hand-washing and single use items being reused.
A previous March 2012 inspection of China Star Super Buffet had generated a C grade, before a re-inspection brought them up to A grade status.
The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
