Tried a new Chinese restaurant recently in Portland (maine) at the advice of the Portland Phoenix called Stir Crazy. It is at 579 Congress St. near the Portland Museum of Art. While I will not belabor addressing all of the positive things that were said in the review, I will sum up our meal as plainly as I can: dissapointing. My fellow diner ordered one chicken dish – another showed up. My veggy mu-shi was serviceable but not any sort of fresh as had been raved about in the review. Stricktly 2nd rate strip mall food. The ambiance was over-lit flourescent, and the drop ceilings were scruffy. Too bad, as it is in a terric location. Portland deseves better Chinese food.
P.S. mainetoday also gave it a positive review. I respectfully disagree with them as well.
