“A good bakery, tasty food but poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2010

Fortunately Bateel has a wonderful bakery with cakes, breads, pastries but a weak service. I cannot adress what exactly is wrong about Bateel but here is the thing, they cannot use the opportunity of having such a wonderful bakery. The food is really good but the poor atmosphere and the service(again) is taking the rate down. They keep the bakery and the cafe totally seperated even they are at the same place. Once we were served old dated breads which is the most dissappointing issue. We visited there twice and may visit again hoping there would be some improvements. However, it worths a try.

“bad management”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2010

i used to like this place and i went few days back i wanted something light so i ordered a meal from the kids menu, they refused to serve me because i was not a kid then the waiter went and asked the manager and came back saying that i can only have the meal without the drink and desert that comes with it at the same price that is listed in the menu. i asked for the manager and he said there is nothing he can do cuz his higher boss will not allow it. how stupid is that and their stupid concept of making me pay the meal without the desert and drink then saying that i cant have it. i refused to eat and they just did not do anything! expected them to tell my friends not to pay or to give us something on the house but they just dont know how to deal with cutomers. im never going there again!

“Awful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2010

bad food and no variety
bad service – when a buffet day, you’ll actually accumulate tons of plates on your table and no one would come to take it away … very slow and unhelpful service

I would only give credits for the good cakes if you are going to order that and eat it at home ..
