DiMassey's Mediterranian Restaurant

Anybody been back to this place since it reopened. It was closed for about two years and suddenly it's open again. I was unimpresses the first time I went and the taciturn guy taking your money just grunted and gave me my change. Anything new and better?
I went in there twice and walked out both times. Once they ignored me and the other time there was (eerily) no staff present. I did read somewhere that the original DiMassi's were the new management and not the old management....
I tried it when it first opened, and thought the food was over-salted and mostly dried out from sitting on the buffet table for too long. I went back after the re-opening; the food was the same. The setting seemed a bit shabbier, though, e.g., the florescent lights at the end of one of the buffet tables had a seizure-inducing level of flickering, and the floor was greasy.
If I wanted a Mediterranean buffet, I'd drive down a bit further down183 to Mopac, and eat at Alborz.
Went to the Dimassi's off 183 a month ago and it was just OK. Still same drab atmosphere and mediocre food. The Dimassi's in Houston are way better.
