Desperately seeking GOOD sushi

** NOTE**
I don't like to pan bad resturants, however we need some good sushi options in Fairfield County people!! 
Last night was a truly disappointing and expensive sushi dinner in Stamford.  South Norwalk has an acceptable sushi joint, Kazu.  I think it's better than Nagoya & Wasabi (which I heard is going out of business?)  I go to Kazu all the time because it's walkable and good - not fantastic.  After trying all of the sushi places from here to Westport nothing is GREAT, why is this?
We tried Kotobuki last night after finding Duo to be closed.  Kotobuki came highly recommended second to Duo from both friends and Chowhound so I thought it was worth a try...  I should have ran after being handed a grimy menu and noticing that the carpet and walls were not clean not to mention there was no soap in the ladies room!?!  The fish was not beautifully fresh and the rice was mushy.  And for the quality of the food and the amount that we paid, we should have stuck with Kazu and walked home.
One of my favorite places Maya's in New Haven isn't what it used to be.  Their menu is now filled with pretentious combinations of both sushi and drink.  Although the novel type of menu is inventive - just tell me what you have and don't make me read through 20 pages of menu.
I'm not giving up.  I know there has to be some hole in the wall sushi place within 25 minutes of Norwalk that will serve me beautiful & fresh sushi... Can anyone help a girl out?


  1. Have you tried Fin in Fairfield on the Post Road? The decor is a bit hole in the wall, but the staff is lovely and the sushi is always fresh and delicious. A bit of a drive for you, but for good sushi...
    I hear very mixed reviews about Wild Rice in Fairfield and have not tried it.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion I will def check it out!
