The restaurant #POS  is dead.  Here's why:
Yesterday’s Restaurant POS is Dead; Here’s Why… The digital revolution has been well underway for a few years, but it’s now evolving and affecting the restaurant industry in exciting ways few would have thought possible.  Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your line of work), the old clunker POS (Point of Sale) system of yesterday has finally acknowledged and begrudgingly approved...read more →

This is place is so poorly managed that I truly believe it is in fact dangerous. The staff drink, do shots in front of the public like they guests aren't even there, and curse like drunken sailors (while they may not be sailors, they are definitely drunk, careless, rude and indignant). The experience tonight was so horrific that I'm actually in shock and planning to write government officials, media and others. There was too much to even explain; but given that this was my 4th time there and all times the staff were drunk, doing shots, cursing, generally degrading the public and then attacked and ridiculed me for meekly asking who the owner was - and responding in a way where I actually felt unsafe - I wanted to write now to try to warn others. I eat at 300+ restaurants per year spanning 6 continents and this is the worst run restaurant I have seen in recent memory (probably ever actually). This place really needs oversight and inspection. The people running (or claiming to run) this place are beyond despicable. It's dangerous. Definitely not a family place. You will not want your kids to hear the language at the bar (or witness the behavior and comments of staff), but should you dare that anyway and have a complaint, don't expect a sympathetic response or concern (expect to be attacked and ridiculed). This was one of the most bizarre experiences I've ever had at a restaurant and I can only hope someone intervenes before something really bad happens out there.

My favorite hotel in the Middle East. The suites ROCK. Please, though, W of Doha, get the F&B team on the same page as the other FOH staff. I can't fathom nicer suites. Awesome property!
