A complaint brought an inspector from the Mississippi Department of Health to Good Karma restaurant in Gulfport on Friday.

The restaurant at 346 East Pass Road was given a C rating for insects, rodents or animals present

This is the first critical violation for Good Karma since its first inspection in February 2015.

Also cited this week was Aristo’s restaurant at 3840 Promenade Parkway, D’Iberville.

The inspection showed the restaurant was not in compliance for food contact surface cleaned and sanitized. Corrected during the inspection were bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods and last inspection permit not posted as required.

This is the first C for Aristo’s since records were posted in 2009.

The Health Department inspectors give restaurants and other food venues an A rating when they pass the inspection and a B if most violations are corrected during the inspection. A grade of C is given for critical violations. Inspection reports must be posted where customers can see the current rating.
