Song- Too Loud!

Just came back from a first outing to Song. Really had high hopes that it could become one of our staples.
First of all, how they can have a DJ in a restaurant that already has acoustic problems is beyond me. Luckily, a table opened up outside and we switched- completely saved the experience.
Portions were huge and prices were inexpensive. But one huge culinary turnoff for me was the fact that you could not order any of the currys without fish sauce- all of the sauces are premade. That about knocks out vegetarians from many things on the menu- not to mention me since I am gluten intolerant and they were unable to tell me if the fish sauce was GF.
But I would absolutely go back for the squid in garlic sauce and my fish eating companion was very happy with her Masaman curry ( though I couldn't taste it). Rice was pretty lame- way overcooked and not flavorful.
Do this place- but on your own terms.
