My restaurant has been using Lavu Inc. for a couple of months now and we were greatly overcharged. We've been told we would receive a refund weeks ago and nothing...This is almost $1,000. we're out because of the overcharge and we still can't get anyone to find out why we're still waiting. Even though they say we are owed this payment. Be careful before you get into a contract with them. It's almost impossible to get them on the phone and when you do you still get the blow off.

Trying to get through to customer support to see status of outage as we are trying to close out customer tabs. Been on hold with no success.

We’ve been using Lavu for five years now. We generally have problems on a regular basis. Servers might’ve been attacked Friday for all I know. Doesn’t change the fact they go down all the time. I’ve had fifteen years experience before lavu. All POS systems have issues. Lavu seems to be more unreliable in general.

My place used Lavu for about a year--we now have aloha. We had 3 iPads set up and several iPods. The iPods were rarely used due to unreliability. Nice interface, fairly intuitive layout and use. Few button presses to place orders. But, prone to crashing which would require a reboot of the iPad. Not a killer during slow shifts, but during busy brunches was the cause of many a hair pulled out.

We've been using POS LAVU at work. It was average at best 2 years ago when we opened. But it has had some good improvements. Inventory keeping is hopeless, there is no easy way to create a decrementing button for say a cocktail of the day. So it throws out your stock levels in the inventory. Support in Australia is still lacking too. There are very little self help videos online.
