We have issued a notice to them for the improvement in cleanliness. The team will visit the same restaurants again after 15 days and check the hygiene conditions.”
The team collected samples of prepared dishes, including curd, cheese, allo matar, pulses, channa masala, ice-cream and khoya, from these places.

We have issued instructions to the restaurant and hotel owners to keep the kitchen clean, cook fresh vegetables and follow the guidelines of the Health Department,” health officials said. — TNS
