alas, a couple of bad meals at Sripraphai

I am not sure what is going on, but the much beloved Sripraphai has let me down several times in a row recently. My last meal was nothing but mediocre. My wife and I had a wide range of things. The sauce on the fried watercress salad was enemic. It tasted like some of the flavors were either missing or out of balance, not the beautiful complex bouquet that I have come to expect. The same could be said about the green curry, chicken with cashew, and pork with string bean curry (the dry one, which was a little better but still lack-lustre). It just seemed like rushed, underconsidered, Thai...more like (gulp) americanized 'fast' food. I certainly hope that the place is not going downhill. It is one of my favorites. Anyone else have a similar experience there recently?
