Sushi Box is not the place to bring the family to celebrate a graduation, but it's a great place for lunch with co-workers. We have a Taiwanese friend and we let her order; I can't say what it is, but it's always been 100% excellent.

I can vouch for the Korean food here-- jaap chae was a generous well flavored portion with lots of vegetables! Looking forward to trying bulgogi and bi bim bap on future visits! Miso soup was good and standard fare. Sweet potato sushi were really large and good. Veggie dumplings ok. Dumpling soup was good according to my daughter.

I went to this place since I had a groupon for this. I ordered Sashimi Special ($29.99). The food looked good but it was very fishy. I would not recommend ordering sushi or sashimi from this place; but rather order korean food from this restaurant if you don't want to travel to boston for korean dishes since they are actually...

This was our second time there and still just as good as the first time. We had forgotten about the dinner boxes so had 2 orders of sushi - The Rainbow Sushi was a great combination. Pork Katsu and bolgoki were great too. Had enough for lunch the next day which was perfect. Having a Groupon was an extra bonus.... More

I'm not sure how Sushi Box compares to the other Japanese venues in Waltham, but we found it to be about average compared to other sushi restaurants we've been to. Everything was fresh, prices very reasonable, service was good, but none of the sushi or maki wowed us in any way. I would consider returning to try some of the... More

When it comes to sushi I could be a pain due to health issues. I have had the love, rainbow and California rolls as well as miso soups and all is always fresh. Reasonable price ! The attendant is adorable and service is pretty fast! Thank you sushi box for always taking care of my colds with your miso soups... More

I'm a repeat customer of this place because of the good food. And when I saw there was a Groupon, I happily bought it. I made sure there was no restrictions and took my friends there for lunch. However, they refused to take the Groupon and said it can only be used for dinner (which is not on the Groupon... More

Had the dinner boxes - about $17 each - included salad, 2 pot stickers, onion rings (not sure why!!) and choice of sushi/sashimi and a main entrée. Food was excellent- very fresh. Rest of the menu looked interesting.

I discovered this place shortly after our company moved over to Waltham. I missed Boston food and tried this place out. By far better than any other authentic Asian cuisine I have had. I am not so much into the Americanized Chinese food. This is a great place for the real deal.

Food isn't bad and it is authentic for the most part. We usually go in for lunch and never have a problem getting a seat. Not a bad little place. Staff are very polite and they usually remember us each time we come in. :-)
