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

We went during the "blizzard" of 2016... We have tried LC Chens, Sweet Basil among other sushi restaurants in Stamford and this one is the closest to what we have come to expect from Canada. We had the Pad Thai, Yaki udon, pho soup, edamame, fried pork dumplings and an assortment of sashimi, sushi and rolls. Everything was fresh and... More

It's a nice size place- with cool decor. I ordered the shrimp shumai which is the absolute best I've ever had anywhere! Their ginger dressing is fantastic and the sushi is so mouthwatering and fresh - practically melts in your mouth. Can't wait to go back.

As a regular customer at Wild Rice for quite a few years, it has spoiled me - I never seem to like sushi as much anywhere else we go. The food is consistently so fresh, and has a wide selection on the menu for non-sushi eaters as well. my favorite roll is the Caribbean roll with plantain bananas, peanuts &... More

Great downtown Fairfield vibe with seasonal seating outside. Love the food and love that they accommodate my daughter's food allergies. Thank you!

Went on a Friday night so it was very busy and crowded. They stuck my family and I at a terrible table next to the kitchen and up very close to another table. The waiter was the worst, paid no attention and could care less. Place was loud as heck. If you like tight places, loud dining and VERY average... More

Beautifully presented fresh sushi, great selection of vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese fusion food. Consistently good food, service, value. Large portions, we each ordered appetizers and mains and this was too much food for 4 people.

I went with a friend and had a great time. We started with spicy sushi rolls and drinks, they where delicious. I couldn't remember the name of the entrees, but they had shrimps as main item. The service was nice and I liked the design of the place. It's a place that I will visit again.

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.
