Among the violations listed were fish served raw without having undergone parasite destruction, food thawing in standing water, cutting boards on the floor, food stored on the floor and staff handling ready-to-eat food without gloves.

A Villa Azur spokesperson has played down the concerns, saying, “The kitchen is very clean. We follow all the rules and regulation. We did have an inspection, but the inspector found no major violation.”
