Sam Woo-- is it a chain?

I just had dinner at Sam Woo BBQ in Chinatown and was utterly disappointed. The walnut shrimp was ok- nothing special, but the roast duck was terrible- not enough meat and too much fat (not to mention the lack of flavor in the meat). Is this the same restaurant as the Sam Woo BBQ in Monterey Park/Alhambra? I had the best roast duck at that location and was expecting the same here, but to no avail.

Personally, I think the food at Hop Woo, a block down on the same street, is better than Sam Woo in Chinatown. But of course, nothing beats Monterey Park when it comes to Chinese food.
