Underwhelmed by Land Thai

Went to Land Thai last night after hearing raves about it from just about everyone/everywhere (Disclaimer: I had not done a search on here, tsk tsk). I was expecting the best Thai food I'd ever had. Far from it. Not that it was particularly poor; it was just ok. The chicken/coconut/chive soup was a little too sweet for my tastes, and the beef/peppers/onion/rice/mushroom dish had virtually no spiciness. Could have been a traditional American dish as much as Thai.

My dinner mate had sauteed salmon in brown rice. Again, it was not horrible; just did not have anything distinctively "Thai" about it. The mixed appetizer plate was good, though, with the dipping sauces evoking at least SOMETHING Thai-ish.

Was I insulted, disappointed and ripped off? Hardly. Will I go back? Probably not....
