I went to Katz on December 25th, 2009 to have a get together with some friends, have some nice time and nice lunch. Unfortunately, all my hopes were lost since the moment the receptionist saw me. He was a very affected guy, was wearing a thick necklace and had his hair combed up.
It was very crowded there due to Christmas, of course. I was waiting in line and someone told me I had to write my name on the list. So, I walked towards the place where the list was placed and started checking it, holding a pen that was near the list. Suddenly this guy came and told me - in front of everybody else: "don't touch my things". I was startled by what he said and embarrassed in front of all the other people. But that was not all: he slowly started to push me away from the list using his body, so that I could not see it and so that I was left in the corner. I then asked him if he could write down my name and I started to spell it... impatiently, he wrote it wrongly and while I tried to correct it, he just ignored me. I said "thank you", but he did not even reply back. Humiliated, I went back to the line. Some time later - from certain distance, and again, in front of everyone, he asked: "what's your name, in hell?!".
The only reason why I stayed in the place was because I was waiting for other people in order to have a pleasant Christmas lunch. We had planned this lunch weeks before and despite what happened to me, I did not want to spoil their day by trying to go somewhere else.
Few days later I emailed the manager reporting the incident, but never got a reply.
Apart from this, the food was simply awful.
