Myanmar mixed report, need more recs.

Had a recent meal at Myanmar, and I can't decide if it is worthy of a return trip.

I did plenty of research before going, and the dishes were very hit or miss.

Ginger Salad- People on this board have RAVED about it. It was good, but not revelatory. It gets the most points for being different more than anything else.

Samosa Salad- Only ok, it was best when it was hot, but it cooled down very, very quickly and became somewhat unappealing.

Pumpkin Curry- The pumpkin part (perfectly steamed kabocha squash) was delicious, but the mild "curry" sauce was very forgettable.

Chili Chicken- Inedible. It had an unpleasant fishiness to it, either from shrimp paste or too much fish sauce or something.

Soooo....I'd like to think that there are better options to be had at this place. It is clearly family run and I would love to be a regular and support it, but if the meals are only ok, and not spectacular as I kinda expected them to be, then i won't keep spending money there.

Alot of tables seemed to be enjoying noodle dishes, maybe thats the way to go. What are some great dishes that i am missing out on. I love, love, love spicy food, thai food, and indian food (rabieng, bangkok 54, delhi club, bombay are some of my faves) so I'm looking for dishes that really pack a punch,
