Peninsula Minneapolis Mixed Bag

Paz and I have been to Peninsula 4 times in the past month, and I have a query:
The first time we fell in love: the noodle dishes were wonderful, the tofu satay was great, Paz liked his volcano pork or whatever it was called. Since then, we have been trying to branch out and having no luck. I always get the Mee Siam noodles because I love them so (although every time they bring them to me they say "pad thai" which is also on the menu, so I wonder if there is a difference), but beyond that, not so great. The mango shrimp was basically sweet and sour shrimp with pieces of mango, and not at all spicy as billed. The Buddhist Yam Pot was bland, the tofu with pork dish was dull. Am I ordering wrong? Are they only good at noodles?
By the way, for any interested and in the dark, it is on 26th and Nicollet in Minneapolis.
