On Sunday (25 December), the state health department ordered the restaurant to close for 14 days and issued six compounds to the eatery for food safety and hygiene violations under the Food Hygiene Regulations 2009.

The next day (26 December), The Star reported that the restaurant’s license had been revoked by the local authorities effective immediately.

Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) president Mohd Fauzi Mohd Yatim said action will be taken if the restaurant continues to operate.

He added that any application for a new license will only be considered if all conditions, especially the cleanliness level, are complied with.

Based on inspection records, Fauzi said the restaurant received a Grade B rating for its cleanliness in June 2021 and in January this year.

Consumers are advised to choose premises with the BeSS (clean, safe and healthy) logo when buying food or eating out.
