I've waited for so long! Delicious sushi, sashimi and rolls. Their fish is very fresh. I've never tried the hot food. I love the salad dressing and buy a container to bring home. After trying and eating bad, tasteless sushi in Stamford, I'm happy that Open Rice came along!

Local, small, take out or delivery for me. Wouldn't think of eating here if I was venturing out, but good enough for that Sunday Night NY Chinese food hankering...Scallion Pancakes are soggy, but basic staples are are all ok, good enough. Ventured on the Japanese side of the menu. Lunch Bento's are a decent deal. Chicken and Shrimp are decent. What is good about Open Rice is you have the Japanese and Chinese options so its a one stop with a large menu for those who don't want one or the other. Delivery is fast, at least for me as I am close. I always get the '30-45 minutes' but they usually are much faster than that. Depending on who answers the phone you may need a little patience if you are placing an order that has any bit of customization to it, particularly sushi rolls so make sure you have them repeat your order back .

Open rice is a small restaurant with small flavors. The staff is nice but I would suggest going to pearl east where the food is much better and the restaurant is much bigger

Unfortunately, that's the best thing I can say about this meal.
I had hibachi steak and shrimp. Asked fore steak medium rare. It was brown throughout and dry. The shrimp was fishy, not fresh. Fried rice had no seasoning. The vegetables with the steak and shrimp was primarily onions. I counted 2 tiny springs of brocolli and about 3 chunks of zucchini.
Shrimp Rangoon was undercooked.

They fixed up the place nicely since it became OpenRice - perhaps a bit too nice considering the less than appealing food. Very disappointing. $30 for one main dish, app, and a Coke.

Also -eats just say I had some mike stomach disturbances a few hours after eating here. Never again.
Can somebody PLEASE open a delicious Asian restaurant in Stamford?

First timer at Open Rice. Ordered takeout, avocado salad and chow fun noodles with chicken.
Pros: Big portions at a very reasonable prices. There was a huge amount of chicken in the chow fun, and a lot of avocado in the salad. Very clean place with pleasant personnel and quick service.
Cons: Mediocre flavors. The salad was just lettuce and avocado, no tomato, cucumber, etc., so rather disappointing, and the dressing was just okay. Lots of places in town do this salad better. The chow fun was very bland, under seasoned and under sauced, and the noodles were overcooked. Really stupid name.
Bottom line, I may try Open Rice again, with different choices, but so far they're pretty unimpressive, and with other options nearby, I can't say it'll be any time soon.
