pdx cha ba thai:(

turtlchow | Dec 27, 200510:55 PM

i am very sad. when i first moved to portland 1.5 yrs ago, i read about cha ba thai (on 57 and sandy in ne pdx) on chow hound. what a god send for a curry fanatic like me. The curries were thick and bursting with flavor, i couldn't be happier....the last two times i have gone (in the last few months) i have been consistently let down. with the exception of one special salmon curry, the curries that I had of late were insipid, lifeless, thin, spicy without substance. i am almost sad enough to cry. in the vast sea of average/mediocre thai food spots that is portland, cha ba was a shining star. what happened?? is there a different chef there now?? did i just come on busy nights and get unlucky?? and where can I get that divine curry revelation???
