A downtown Columbia restaurant was back open for business after facing multiple violations.
Taj Mahal closed last week after a gas leak led to an inspection that revealed more than 40 different food and safety violations. Nineteen of those violations were critical.
On Tuesday, the Columbia/Boone County Department of Health told ABC 17 News that the critical violations had been fixed and the business’s permit was reinstated.
The restaurant also passed the Columbia Fire Department’s follow up inspection for fire code violations.
ABC 17 News discovered the restaurant had previously been shut down in April for multiple violations.
