The establishment was found to be in violation of Law No. 2 of 2008 regarding food in the emirate of Abu Dhabi and its associated legislation, with its practices posing “a significant risk to public health”, ADAFSA said.

The “repetition of high-risk violations” that have a direct impact on food safety and insects found in the food preparation area led to the closure, the Authority added.
