Chili Garden in Medford, the food tastes different

Does anyone know if there has been a change in kitchen personnel at Chili Garden? I usually go once every six weeks with friends, and this last time (ten days ago) the food was very different. For example, the wild vegetable with garlic appetizer, which is usually complexly flavored, was dressed with sesame oil only. We asked the waiter about it, and he said it was the same chef. He apologized about the appetizer saying that the chef forgot the rest of the ingredients. It could have been an off day, but then yesterday some friends ordered takeout, and they mentioned that they also felt disappointed.

  1. Had delivery from there about two weeks ago and noticed no difference.

    1. Lunch today was good (beef w/spicy green pepper, plenty spicy).

        Thanks pemma, Aromatherapy and almansa for your replies. I was starting to lose confidence in this place which has pleased me so much in the past.

      2. I recently had the wild veg w/ garlic and found it unchanged. Duck feet, too.
