Thamer Al Qasimi, spokesperson of ADFCA, said, “The restaurant management still failed to make the necessary adjustments to raise the hygiene standards, which could have a negative impact on public health and safety.”

“The restaurant will remain shut until the necessary adjustments are made,” he added.

Several shortcomings were detected at the restaurant including unclean floors, ceilings and equipment, lack of maintenance of lighting fixtures and unclean refrigerators.

In addition to this, the management also failed to provide expiry dates on food served and left food uncovered for long periods of time.

Violating pest-control conditions also led to spread of insects in the food preparation area, in addition to hiring untrained employees.
