I've been going to Wild Ginger since it was Natural Village- pre-renovation. The first 6 months after renovation, this place was 5 STARS! The owner, Jessica, was there every hour the place was open and made sure I was completely happy with my experience and meal. I was given extra rice. I was given a 10% lifetime discount. As a vegan, it was my go-to restaurant in the area. I was there so often, that when I menu changed my special order made it on to the menu. One day, I went for lunch, the owner was not there. She stopped working every hour and opened up another restaurant in the area. The place was starting to slip. I was no longer receiving my 10% discount. The waitstaff was not as eager to please. I ended up chipping a tooth at this lunch. This caused me to take a year-long absence. When I return in mid 2010, there was still no Jessica; She was always at the other restaurant. The waitstaff slipped even further. They are not exceptionally polite, they don't seem very bright-- it could be the language barrier. They don't even know who I am. The food, however, is still very good. I just don't feel as comfortable or as taken care of. I am no longer in the gentle generous hands of the owner. The waitstaff is in a very big rush at all times. Partly due to the high volume of take-out orders, but the restaurant is always almost empty. This makes for a confusing experience.

UPDATE: I returned with a friend on 9/11/11. She was treating me to dinner; I was excited. It took a while for us to figure out what we wanted. All I knew was I didn't want anything spicy. After much deliberation I chose Buddha's Delight. The flavors sounded nice and there was no spicy symbol on the menu. It arrived. There were three shriveled pieces of tofu that appeared to be fried. Tofu was a main part of the dish and was not supposed to be deep fried- the menu said stir-fried. Smelled great, however. I started to notice vegetables that weren't in the description. There were peppers, which I don't eat. There was basil, which also wasn't in the description. And there were mushrooms. IT WAS SPICY! So spicy I could not enjoy it. This free meal that was supposed to be enjoyable became something I had to rush through because the spice was so strong. My friend said, "I've never seen you eat so fast." The waitress was a cold b*tch. I didn't complain because anytime I, or someone I've been with, has complained, they spin the fault and but the blame on you-- for not ordering correctly. One time, when my friend then showed the item on the menu to the waitress to prove that she was right, the waitress mumbled another excuse that made no sense.
