“Terrible service, and watered-down drinks”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Service is awful. Special call-out to Steffi, one of the worst waitresses I've ever come across. I had the misfortune of her serving me food and drinks afterwards. She is lazy, a terrible server and an awful attitude. Should work in a prison, not a bar.

Drinks are like water. Obviously the staff are making a buck on serving watered-down drinks and then selling other drinks with the remaining alcohol and taking the profit. Or the bar/hotel is just ripping people off. Either way the drinks are awful.

Band is good though.

“Working girls galore”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

It depends what you're after, and I am not after what this place is renowned for. If loud music and constant approaches by, ahem, 'young ladies' is your thing, then BATS is the place for it.

“Great steaks, great service, great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

BATS = Basement At The Shangri-La. Spent an evening here with colleagues. Bar-style layout and atmosphere with dining tables along the back. Excellent food and the steaks tasted fantastic. Coupled with great service and a great atmosphere BATS makes a good choice for a decent feed. Reservation recommended to secure a dining table.
