Mandalay overrated?

I think it is, does anyone agree? If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's the Burmese (Myanmar-ish?) restaurant in College Park. Admittedly, it may be the best restaurant in College Park, but that's not saying much. It seems to have gotten a lot of great reviews, but I feel like a lot of the food is pretty bland. It sort of reminds me of what might happen if you tried to make an "ethnic" cuisine but only limited youself to the selection and quality of ingredients you could get at the local Safeway. My wife likes it quite a bit, so I'll probably keep going back. Mind you, the prices are pretty good, so I shouldn't complain too much. I'm just curious as to what others think.
