  1. I've always been happy with the selection and quality of the fish at Wasabi in Orange. I don't know if its the best in Ct. but I find it to be very good with friendly staff.

    1. There's decent sushi, but none that approaches the quality of what you'd find in NYC.

      I've had good sushi at Kotobuki in Stamford. They're more of a "purist" sushi joint: you won't find 3 pages of fusion rolls there, but fish quality is usually pretty good, and their sushi rice is also decent.

      Kazu and Wasabi Chi in South Norwalk have been pretty good also. I've also heard good things about Bond on the Post Rd in Norwalk, but I haven't been. They bill themselves as an Asian Bistro; take from that what you will.

      In Fairfield itself, Fin is the standard bearer, but I consider them a notch below Kotobuki.

      Asian Bistro
      95 Storrs Rd Ste 7, Willimantic, CT 06226

      Wasabi Chi

        I LOVE Bond on the Post Rd. in Norwalk, but appear to be the only person to admit that publicly on this board. ;)

          Kotobuki is quite good, but generally don't think the salmon is good - something about the way they cut it makes it tough. We have a great repoire with a certain server who knows us well and always tells us what is good that night. Plien is right that is a bit more standard - don't go expecting tons of exciting combinations, just good fish.

          I have only been to Fin in Ffld once, but I thought the quality was very good. But, like I said, only been there once.

        2. I always go to Kira Sushi in Greenwich - it's consistently good so I can put off going into Manhattan for sushi if I just want some tuna or yellowtail. The downside is they won't have the unusual offerings or the wide variety of dishes you get in the city.

          1. I haven't found a place in CT as good as my faves in NYC, but I think Tengda in Greenwich is good.

            1. Kira is my favorite that I've tried.
              Fin and Tengda second.
              I was extremely unimpressed with Kazu - I thought the rolls were extremely unbalanced (ratio of rice to interior was all wrong). Fish seemed fine though.
