Los Angeles-area restaurants 71 Above and Takami Sushi are using TableSafe’s RAIL payment platform to offer EMV-secured pay-at-the-table convenience to their customers.  

The RAIL gives dining guests full control over the payment process at the table, allowing them to choose when and how they pay for their meal. In addition to providing guests with peace of mind knowing their credit card never leaves their hands. Restaurants benefit from greater staff efficiency, quicker table turns, and the safeguards afforded by EMV payment compliance. 

“When it comes to the payment process, restaurants have been stalled in the dinosaur era for some time,” said Emil Eyvazoff, owner of 71Above and Takami Sushi restaurants. “… Our patrons will appreciate the enhanced security and faster payment process, and we can mitigate the fraudulent chargebacks that have cost us in the past.”

All consumer data is instantly encrypted and never stored on the restaurant POS system, eliminating the threat of data theft. TableSafe’s RAIL is housed inside a patented billfold that replicates the traditional folio previously used. The platform provides an intuitive interface and allows the guest to auto-calculate the tip, split the bill multiple ways (including pay-by-item) and receive email receipts. Once the payment process is complete, the RAIL allows the guest to provide real-time feedback on their dining experience enabling the restaurant to gain feedback on their food and service.
