Beautiful presentation, tasty fish, and friendly staff in a pleasant place

The sushi presentation is among the best I have seen. Lots of young people frequent this place, likely due to its proximity to Fairfield University.I requested brown rice with my salmon maki and was pleasantly surprised to be served what I know as red rice, which gave a nutty and hearty texture to... read more

Wild Rice is a regular spot for us. The food is always fresh and delicious. Occasionally we eat in, but every time, especially in the evening, it seems they are short-staffed, busy, and noisy so we prefer takeout. The waiters are polite enough, they just always seem overwhelmed. Favorites include sushi and shrimp pad thai. They now have an excellent... More

A must for a sushi fan passing through Fairfield. This is not an all-you-can eat restaurant and the prices are a bit on the high side but the food was delicious, fresh, and well worth it.

I like this place both for dine-in and takeout. As someone who has picky friends (aka those who won't try sushi), it is nice to see a variety of Asian cuisine to meet everyone's palates. I do wish they offered delivery, but it's an easy to find place with enough parking nearby that it's not a hassle. Their pad Thai... More

Excellent food, a bit more pricey than some Asian restaurants, but well worth it! Interesting decor with friendly, pleasant staff. Chicken with Coconut Red Curry Sauce was outstanding! Also delectable were the bbq spare ribs, salads and veggie rolls. Sushi dishes looked too beautiful to eat; judging from our table mates across the way, sushi was as wonderful to eat... More

We grabbed a bite to eat here before attending a concert at Stage One. The food was good and reasonably priced. The drunken noodle we had was very good. We also tried the tuna sushi pizza. It too was good. Overall a good place to eat at reasonable prices

Wild Rice is a trendy Asian fusion restaurant located in downtown Fairfield. The decor is unusual and attractive, the food is consistently good and the place is always packed. Prices are a bit higher than most other Asian food in the area but patrons don't seem to mind. I am not a sushi lover but they have a very popular... More

Downtown Fairfield, CT is a great place. On the Post Road there are many restaurants and shops. This place does not stand out in appearance, but inside, it does. Great sushi and veggie dishes, which is what we look for. We were there on a Saturday night which was busy but not overwhelming. The service was outstanding and the sound... More

We have eaten here twice and both times we liked the food, enjoyed the atmosphere and thought the service was good. We have had dim sum, wonton soup, vegetarian hot and sour soup, chicken lettuce cups and outstanding crispy scallops. All of the food we had was refreshing and at one point just what we needed while getting over illness.... More

I always thought the food was satisfactory until I ordered for takeout after Hurricaine Sandy and found glass in my food. We haven't returned since.
