Health board pleased with Boston King

After its license to serve food was suspended for three days back in April following problematic town health inspections, Boston King Cafe on North Main Street has received a clean bill of health following three more inspections with no critical violations.

Sun Son, owner of the restaurant next to the Andover Public Safety Center, said that since the April hearing, efforts have significantly increased to keep the restaurant up to code, with Son training his employees on the town's expectations.

"Based on the inspection reports, it looks like a corner has been turned somewhere, and it's a good thing," said Tom Carbone, Health director. "Things look pretty good. Something has changed."

The restaurant will appear before the Andover Board of Health again in October after three additional months of inspections.

After the board voted to continue the item to the October meeting, Son apologized for the trouble, saying that he was "very sorry it took this long."

"It's the result that matters," said Candace Martin, Board of Health chairwoman. "This is very promising. I think this is the first time we've had three inspections with no critical violations.
