Langley restaurant reopens after Fraser Health issues closure notice

Sushi restaurant passed follow up inspection Friday morning

Nori Sushi was served with a closure notice by Fraser Health on Thursday, but it has since been given permission to reopen.

The health authority was back at the restaurant in Brookswood (118-4061 200th St. in Langley) Friday morning after an initial inspection found it failed to “wash dishware property” and “detergent [was] not available onsite for use.”

The order issued under section 32 of the Public Health Act required the restaurant owner, Kyungha Kim, to connect the dishwasher to a supply of detergent before reopening.

In addition, “all dishware to be washed and disinfected,” and “all cookware to be washed and disinfected.”

The follow-up inspection Friday morning found that the dishwasher was fully functional with a detergent supply, and all dishware was washed and sanitized.

The Brookswood restaurant has mainly positive feedback from patrons online. It has earned a 4.5 star rating on Google after receiving 60 reviews.
