I have take out from here every so often. The other night I went in to pick up my food and whe. I asked what I owe they told me the price. I thought it sounded off a d thought maybe they gave me the...wrong order. The guy behind the counter shoved the bag at me and basically yelled “this is the price!” I said “hey I’m the customer here you can’t talk to people like that” and he put his hand up ✋ and walked away.. I was stunned. He was beyond rude and had care about my experience. There are a lot of options for Asian food in Fairfield and I won’t be returning here! It was crazy!More

We had eaten here in the past - probably it has been a few years- and liked the food. This time we had two appetizers and two entrees. The appetizers were good- vegetable spring rolls and the bbq spare ribs. For my entree I ordered...the terriyaki chicken with steamed vegetables. The chicken was rubbery - not at all good. The vegetables were fresh and tasted good. My husband ordered the chow fun- his chicken was rubbery too- the noodles and vegetables in his dish were good. We received ok service. I doubt we will eat here again as we were disappointed in the quality of the chicken.More

The sushi is well made but if you want traditional Japanese Sushi this is not your place. Chinese food is good/typical.

The sushi did not taste fresh at all. Was not happy with our dinner and will not go back. If you want sushi go somewhere that just has sushi...like Fin. Not this place. Thankfully we didn't get sick.

I have ordered from and eaten at Wild Rice numerous times since their opening in Fairfield. Throughout time, TWO times, I brought back my "to go" order as it was unsatisfactory. Just recently I brought back my order to Wild Rice because the salmon in...the roll was BROWN instead of orange with a strong FISHY smell, clearly NOT fresh. As it was a Sunday, my thought was that the fish used was the tail end of their inventory....When I returned the order -so they could see and smell all the unsatisfactory rolls, I was told that this was the 2nd time I complained and returned an order and I obviously cannot be "pleased"??!! I was then told NOT TO COME BACK AGAIN!! So all you out there- be advised if you complain about lack of quality to Wild Rice, even evidence it, they very well might tell you never to come back! What type of customer service and quality control is this???More

Sushi is an occasional treat for me. Although I have my own special sushi place... Wild Rice delivered on flavor, presentation, and freshness. This place is one treat I look forward to. If you daring enough, try the sea urchin. Creamy, like butter that has...been broken up with a fork but with the flavor of the sea... yum!More

I took my God Daughter, who attends Sacred Heart, to Wild Rice for lunch today. I ordered Sushi, she Miso Soup, Ginger Salad and Scallion pancakes. My lunch dish was delicious, the sushi very fresh and delicious. Her food was also delicious with one caveat....Please instruct your staff who prepares the salad to cut the greens smaller and more thoroughly. She literally found an 8 inch length of lettuce that had been stabbed at multiple times. I will definitely return when back in Fairfield.More

When I can't decide between my favorite dish of Chicken Chow Fun or some Sushi, I visit Wild Rice so I can get the best of both worlds. They have some hidden parking in back if your ok with the tight entry way between buildings....Finding parking on the street can get tough. Great atmosphere and outside seating when the weather is nice. They have a nice selection of specialty rolls. A tad pricey, but definitely tasty. Do yourself a favor and try the Caribbean Roll.More

A friend and I have been trying out the restaurants in Fairfield Center with great luck. We wanted to try Wild Rice next. Both of us were disappointed with our meals. I had Teriyaki with salmon. The fish was dry (overcooked) and the veggies looked...like someone ran out to the grocery store before I ordered - a few broccoli florets, baby carrots (!) and green beans. My friend ordered the Pad Thai with chicken, but not spicy. It was bland and dry. Neither of us finished our meals, and definitely didn't take a doggie bag. Based on the previous reviews, maybe we should try at lunch instead.More

Wild Rice is the go restaurant for Asian dining in Fairfield. The food is reasonably priced, well portioned, and fresh tasting with a flair for presentation. Despite it being a busy place on weekend nights, our group of four never feels rushed and always enjoys...great service. For appetizers, we're big fans of the Wasabi Shu Mai and the Pork Fried Dumplings. For entrees, we like too many to list, though I'm partial to the General Tso's Chicken; never a questionable piece of chicken and always more than enough sauce. I also think the Veggie Lovers Roll is a great choice for a light meal sans meat. I recommend dining in even though it can be difficult to secure a table at certain times (call ahead!). Ordering take out from Wild Rice simply doesn't hold the same appeal - I just find less attention to detail and smaller portions than the in person experience. Don't forget, Wild Rice is downtown. Though parking can be a challenge, it shouldn't be a deterrent.More

Simple lunch menu, fast service and friendly. I went for a quick linch but stayed there for an hour, even after finishing the light meal. The staff didn't make us feel uncomfortable for staying to talk for so long. Nice!
