Awwad added that restaurants would be legally accountable if they set prices higher than those approved by the Income and Sales Tax Department; the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Supply; and the union.

More than 250 restaurants in Amman have shut down since the start of the year due to a decline in sales and purchase power, according to Awwad, who warned of more imminent closures.
