Pho Little Saigon, the Vietnamese restaurant at 3775 Spring Mountain Road, was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a 46-demerit inspection on Friday, July 10.
Inspectors found spoiled food, food unprotected from potential contamination, staff not properly washing their hands, ineffective pest control measures and more during the routine inspection.
Last September, SNHD shut down the restaurant with 53 demerits. It reopened six days later.
Back in April 2014, Pho Little Saigon was shut down with 61 demerits.
This marks the seventh time SNHD has shut down the restaurant. The first shutdown — 55 demerits — came in 2009 with additional closures in 2011, with one shutdown after 62 demerits, and 2012.
The health district conducts announced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. 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.
