Has success spoiled Quang?

I need to post about my bad experience at Quang last night. The food did not seem to have its usual freshness, and one dish was disgusting. Spring rolls were acceptable, not great, sweet potato fritters pretty much tasteless doughballs. My son's broken rice chicken dish was tasty, but my husband's shrimp version was just OK. The place was a madhouse and the service was terrible, which I guess is to be expected. But I ordered something that I just couldn't eat, which is rare for me. This dish, a beef and meatball curry, showed up at the table a good ten minutes after everyone else had been served. 1/4 inch of grease floated on the top of a tasteless bowl of bright red broth. I took one look and knew I wasn't eating it. The only flavor was star anise. I fished out some of the cartilage webbed meat (and I like sinew as much as the next guy) and tried to do my best. But I left it. We were running late by that time so I didn't complain, and the place was such a zoo that I had no idea how much more time I could waste getting my complaint heard.

Has anyone else been disappointed lately?
