The Ministry of Economy and Commerce has forced four popular restaurants that raised their prices without approval from the ministry to revoke their decision and go back to their previous prices, The Peninsula reported. The four eateries were booked during an inspection campaign that covered 198 restaurants and cafeterias. The surprise raids were intended to detect erring eateries and ensure full compliance with the law, said the ministry.
