Gandhi India’s Cuisine at 4080 Paradise Road was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Thursday, Feb. 16.

Gross and unsanitary conditions called for the immediate shutdown of the restaurant. KTNV reports that the restaurant has a “multi-generational cockroach infestation.…Inspectors called the infestation ‘excessively active’ and found the roaches housed inside an excessively greasy burner where food was actively cooking. Roaches were also in the prep area, near the sink and on the hot line.”

Other violations KTNV reports include using expired, 11-day old tomato sauce; meat sitting in a “damp and dirty cardboard box”; sauces, meats and more uncovered and subject to contamination; freezer-burned chicken in a torn Ziploc bag; dirty containers of utensils and a dirty food processor stored as clean; and a “brown slime in the ice machine and food with no date labels.”

The television station says that Gandhi's owner, a manager and another representative met with the health department in December 2016, and received a warning that another C grade or closing in the next year would “set the revocation process in motion.”

Gandhi India’s Cuisine came within one point of being shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2015. The restaurant also earned C grades on Nov. 29, 2016; Feb. 16. 2016; and May 15, 2015.

For now, the restaurant remains close. A hearing with SNHD is scheduled on March 9.
