“Awful place with high prices”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

We tried three dishes, regular burger has exstremly dry meat, the onion sup has burnt onion and cheescake tastes like something far from cheescake. It is the worst place we ever been in Jakarta and we pay for these experiece 400 000 rp, 40$. Highly unrecommended.

“9PM Deadline”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Before 9pm it's ok for food and drink. After 9pm, it sucks...nothing but hookers. I feel sorry for the band that has to play in this ****hole ever every night. They must have been tricked into signing a contract. B.A.T.S. stands for Bar at the Shangri-la. Should be Brothel at the shangri-la.

P.S. You may as well burn your clothes after a night in this place, you'll never get the smell of cigarette smoke out.

“horrible place”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

just another horrible place in Jakarta with working girls, not a place with class


the security are like dogs.. they would chase you when you don't feed them with extra money, you would not feel that secure visiting this place. seen another expats were feeding them with some rupiah and running after these guys to get some extra rupiahs and this is happen when they work in such country with minimum weight, after this kind of mentality shaped in third world country, i learned another lesson today, everything is valued by money not sincerity from heart.
