Love this place! It's gluten free and all sauces handmade. Great variety to choose from. We always eat there a couple of times when we go to Palo Alto. It's small but lots of outside dining and carry out. I hope this idea catches on everywhere!

Foods were average but it's healthier than other fast food restaurants. It's better than Panda express. Portions not big. My daughter liked the beef with rice. My hubby liked the spring rolls. Staffs were nice and friendly.

This restaurant is all gluten free... great choices, freshly prepared and all safe for those avoiding gluten or with Celiac. There aren't many Asian food restaurants that are safe for me, and this is one I will for sure return to!

I ordered rice noodle with Asian dust and expected to have something with real Chinese taste! What I got was a cold plain noodle with some barbecued chicken, no special sauce or seasoning at all, absolutely plain! Even no soy sauce or glazed taste like what you get in Panda Express or other American Chinese chains. And price, so expensive... More

Had the beef box with jasmine rice,peanuts,shallots,spouts and their "hot box it" sauce. The beef tasted dry like it was just sitting in a steam table for a few hours, the hot sauce is literally thai bird chilis pureed with no salt,no spices just plain chili. I found the sauce inedible and I enjoy very spicy foods. The box was... More

This is one of our favorite places to order from at work! It is super easy to do a group order from them and the food is phenomenal! It is always fresh and flavorful! They make the best bento boxes we have had!

I have not had Asian food this good in the United States. The ingredients seem very fresh and the spice levels are right on point. I totally recommend this restaurant, especially for at home delivery. I ate Asian Box with full gusto just by ordering it on Postmates and having it delivered straight to my door. Then I plopped down... More

Stopped in for an early dinner after shopping. Great assortment of basic "protein" to choose from and you can mix and match slaw and noodles and brown rice as your bowl base. Had tofu with noodles and slaw and all toppings (too many to list, but provides lots of flavor) and added shiracha sauce, which is optional. Others had the... More

Asian Box is a great spot for a quick, healthy, tasty, and inexpensive meal. You can make personal selections or ask for a preset Box. I had the Hotbox and it was a spicey, tasty, healthy lunch. The place has an upbeat vibe, too, with staff welcooming you to Box as soon as you walk in.
