A restaurant in Abu Dhabi, Desi Pak Punjab Restaurant, has been ordered to close due to multiple violations of food safety standards, authorities announced.

Insects were discovered in the restaurant's food preparation area, alongside generally poor hygiene practices. Additionally, inadequate ventilation was reported, according to a statement issued by the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA).

Desi Pak Punjab Restaurant has repeatedly violated regulations, prompting the closure. ADAFSA confirmed that the shutdown will remain in effect until all food safety issues are resolved and all requirements are fully met.

In 2023, the food regulatory authority conducted over 103,000 inspections across the emirate to ensure adherence to food safety guidelines. This included 63,690 inspections in Abu Dhabi City, 29,583 in Al Ain City and 9,998 in the Al Dhafra Region.

The recently launched Zadna Rating app, which provides the public with access to inspection reports for over 9,000 food establishments, has helped improve compliance rates by over 75 per cent. The public is encouraged to report any food safety concerns through the hotline 800555.
