Green Leaf - what's the deal?

I've been reading a lot of raves about Green Leaf and finally went there the other week. We grabbed the last two-top right by the door which was excruciatingly cold whenever someone opened the door. They took pity on us and moved us to another table at the back as soon as another party left (that was very nice of them).

We had a crepe, and two different kinds of bun (one platter, one bowl, tried lots of the different meats). The food was, as far as I could tell, standard low to mid-range Vietnamese food, no where near the quality of Tamarind Tree and other Vietnamese restaurants I've been to outside of seattle. The service was good, the food was good, the restaurant was cramped, the menu was limited...so fairly average to below average overall, IMO.

So what's the deal? I keep reading people who love this place and think it superior to TT - I don't get it.

Help, anyone?
