Four other fines were issued during the same inspection, each costing $880.
Two of them were for failing to maintain the premises to the required standard of cleanliness and failing to maintain premises, fixtures, fittings, and equipment in a good state of repair and working order.
The remaining fines were for failing to ensure that persons undertaking or supervising food handling operations had knowledge of food safety and failing to take all steps necessary to prevent food contamination.
Zilver has been contacted for comment.
