Has anyone been to Wild Rice in Norwalk?

I noticed that it was no longer the Panda restaurant and was wondering if it's any good.

  1. I have been there at least 2 dozen times and I love it...

    The owner Henry is very nice and outgoing - chat with him for a few minutes and he will remember you and make sure you are happy each and every time you return...

    I'm not sure about the main dishes they serve as I only eat sushi - but the fish is always fresh and high quality - the lunch bento boxes are also very good.

    1. I've been to the branch in Fairfield twice and the food was great both times. Try the vietnamese chicken salad and the sushi.

        what kind of place is this? Pan Asian? or vietnamese? If the latter, this is awesome... If the former, what other vietnamese options do they have?

            It's pan asian. I don't recall any other vietnamese options offhand...

        1. Jfood went for lunch a few months ago. Very friendly, good food. It's definitely a keeper. Not as good as Chings of Sushi 25 in NC but very respectable.

          1. I've been several times to the sister restaurant in Fairfield and it is great. I'll be posting my review of it on my food blog this coming Sunday (Jan 13). Good food, good prices, fresh sushi----we went with our young kids who love it too....def. check it out!

            1. I've been to the Fairfield location and it's very good. I enjoyed the sushi combos.

                I LOVED the Wasabi dumplings at Wild Rice; the texture was BIZARRE but I thought it was a very clever dish! I was not wowed by the spicy mango sauce in my chicken entree. Now that I think about it, it was actually pretty gross. Oh well. I'd try it again for sure, and thank you for the Norwalk tip; I didn't know it was there!
