Kinh Do, the Vietnamese restaurant at 4300 Spring Mountain Road, came within two points of being shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Monday, March 20.

Inspectors found a lack of hand-washing stations, food unprotected from potential contamination, ineffective pest control measures, inaccurate thermometers, unposted grade cards and more.

Kinh Do last earned a C grade in 2011. Otherwise the restaurant earned A and B grades since SNHD first started inspecting in 2010. The restaurant’s last inspection last May brought an A grade.

The health district conducts unannounced 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.
