I decided to try the FatCat with my friend after making several trips to Jln Riang for the stretch of cafes and restaurants there. The service as definitely subpar – We were the first customers for the evening and upon walking in, no one greeted us. This wasn’t really a problem for us as we found a table ourselves and a waitor got us a menu shortly. However, the service took a turn for the worse. Upon deciding our orders, we tried to get the waiter’s attention to no avail. There was a group of staffs (not sure if they were the chefs or waiters) who were seated at a table and were more interested in their conversation. They saw us trying to get basically anyone’s attention but continued in their own conversions. It was only after awhile that one of them shouted to the person at the bar counter to take our orders.
A tall Indian guy (with tattoos) waiter swaggered over to take our order. As chicken tikka masala was one of their recommended dish, I decided to order it. We asked for ice water but he told us in an insolent manner that they do not serve ice water and just left at that. Granted that this bistro does not charge for the 10% service fee, his attitude was simply unacceptable to be in a service line.
Bad service aside, after consuming the food, I felt very uneasy throughout the night and woke up several times. The next morning, I threw up and had severe diarrhea. I called my friend to check if she did encounter the same fate (she shared a portion of my Chicken Tikka Masala) and apparently, she suffered from slight diarrhea as well. It’s been 2 days since and I’m still getting the nausea & bloated feeling. My doc had mentioned that it because of some viral/bacterial infection from the food the previous night.
I’ve never encountered an eatery that failed on 2 key fronts – service and clean food. FatCat is the first.
Please avoid this restaurant for your health sake.
