Its more upscale and the meals served are delicious!! you won't be disappointed We all ordered something and shared which was a lot of... More

We had been recommended this restaurant and viewing the menu online was intriguing.None of the usual-to a Brit- dishes with additional rice or noodles. Here one buys small or large plates to share and thankfully we took the advice of the waitress and did not over order. The small plates are tasty and different and the large plates are more... More

My husband and I went to Wild Rice Wednesday night and ordered the Cod and Braised Beef, and oh my god yum, especially the braised beef! I liked the portion sizes, we left full and had a bit left over for a yummy late night snack. The service was terrific - the waitress was informative and helpful, the food was... More

We have a special condo at Espana we rent or have guests in town rent (allura Direct.com ID # 1988) When our guests or business associates are settled in, we meet at Wild Rice for a drink and share plates. The service and food are perfect and we are never rushed, so catching up or going over business strategies is... More

Chinese with an European/American touch. Although some entrées seem Thaï, rather than Chinese, they are altogether simply delicious. Modern interior, and very correct pricing (approx. $9/entrée, taxes and service excluded) !

This is my favourite place to go before a movie at Tinseltown. It has innovative Chinese food in a relaxed atmosphere.

We've been meaning to go here for a long time as its a well established restaurant that gets decent reviews. The food was very good, as was the service and the prices not bad ($13-16 per plate and each had enough for four to have a taste). Our favourites were the curried lamb potstickers, sidestripe shrimp and pork siu mai... More

Bland, wispy, overpriced. Looked inviting but I've had better out of the frozen case at a grocery store. Had 2 dishes and left, never to return. The best thing was the bottle of Canadian wine, which they did not make.

The service at this place was great. We came as a big group, so they gave us the second floor seating. There were couches and tables which made the seating very comfortable. The food was great. We came during dineout, so we got a 3 course meal. Everything tasted fantastic. I would love to try some of the other things... More

Went for a pre- movie dinner, and was looking forward to trying this restaurant which had win awards two years earlier but I had never had a chance to try. Overall relative to the price I felt it was"OK". The service (on a Tuesday night) was a little on the beginner side, the dumplings were over cooked. The dessert was... More
