Disappointed in Some Recent "Chowhound Favorites" [moved from Boston board]

I've been very disappointed recently in visiting restaurants that had a number of people on chowhound saying the restaurant was a real favorite. (Without naming names, it was a new Indian/Pakistani restaurant in Allston (just awful quality ingredients...), Thai in Cambridgeport, and an Inn in Jackson, New Hampshire (horrible service and pretentious, just plain bad food).)

So a question is whether anyone has suspected owners or friends of owners of restaurants of drumming up support for an undeserving restaurant. I know many people have complained about this issue with Zagat's and based on my recent experiences, I can't think of another explanation for the raves on this board of food that seems clearly sub-par.
