The Agriculture and Food Safety Authority took action against Al Thana Restaurant in Al Ain and Pak Restaurant in Al Dhafrah.

They were pulled up for offences related to food handling, hygiene levels, poor pest control and other irregularities.

The outlets will be allowed to reopen only after rectifying the issues.
