UPDATE: Bellevue restaurant gets second closure by Public Health | Reopened

Anjappar Chettinad was allowed to reopen by King County Public Health on Thursday, April 17. Read the original story below:

Bellevue Indian restaurant Anjappar Chettinad was closed today for the second time in the past 18 days by King County Public Health for what it alleges are more of the same food safety violations that led to its first closure.

The restaurant, located at 14625 N.E. 24th St., was closed at 3 p.m. today, April 15 for keeping potentially hazardous food at unsafe temperatures, inadequate heating and cooling equipment, poor personal hygiene practices and failure to correct repeated violations, according to Public Health.

Anjappar Chettinad was closed March 28 for the same violations and allowed to open on March 31 after an inspector confirmed issues were resolved, but a follow-up inspection at 3 p.m. today led to the restaurant's closure when it was found owners were not complying with standards set by Public Health.
