    I think it might be better to say they have the same design philosophy. The two I've visited were actually very different in lots of particulars, but the style is almost identical.
    Having said that I haven't rushed to visit more partly because they do feel very samey, partly because of the price,and partly because the ambiance is so unbearably cheesy.
