    Fresh, flavorful fast food. Great customer service. We've never had a problem eating at Asian Box. We appreciate that they have a zero-waste business model and that signs are posted warning that no outside food is allowed due to cross-contamination concerns.

    This place is so good! I swear I come here once a week! Everything is gluten free and they don't allow food to enter the premise, so it stays gluten free! Very Celiac friendly!

    Food is fresh and tasty. I usually avoid Asian food because I have Celiac, but the restaurant is great. It is set up for VERY casual dining, more appropriately take out. Loved the food.

    Amazing food, decent prices, and everything is gluten free!!! They even have signs up that don't allow outside food to be brought in to keep it gluten free. This restaurant makes us feel safe and normal. I have only tried the garden box, it was amazing but I'm going to build my own next time. If your celiac you must give this place your business!!

    Dedicated gluten free outfit with 5 star service, intelligent and knowledgeable staff and excellent tasting food. This place has essentially taken over the gap left by Chipotle's Shophouse starting to serve gluten in the meals and dropping the QC with training their staff.

    The Asian Box is amazing! Fast casual with 5 star service. We ordered a specialty drink and he gave us two so we could try both flavors. They walked around with samples so we could try a different meal. They had cucumber mint water available The food was delicious. 100% gluten free!!!! It was exactly what my soul needed on a very sad day.

    Everything here is incredibly delicious!!! From shrimp spring rolls to pork to chicken curry, the Asian Box has some of the most delicious and affordable gluten free food you'll find. Your friends will not even know! They even have cold brew iced coffee made with coconut milk. The staff told me they don't use any dairy either so no risk of cross contamination here. I ate 5 or 6 meals here during my stay and did not get sick at all.

    the joy of finding places like this is one of huge perks of travel for celiacs. it's a lunch counter type place on the lower level of a mall, but with music playing and not unpleasant surroundings. reasonable prices, extensive options and combinations, tasty real food, they say everything is 100% gf and cashier guy was able to quickly look up items that contain dairy (apparently just coffee). I envy celiacs who live nearby. check it out

    Beyond my gluten allergy I have a slew of other intolerances and they were amazingly accommodating. Got the shrimp steamed, no seasoning, bean sprouts, steamed veggies, crispy shallots and rice noodles. Was fantastic and fresh. Will definitely come back. Place is truly 100% gluten free.

    My favorite place to eat! Love everything on the menu, especially the lemongrass pork and the peanut sauce. Super cheap, hearty portions, amazing service (seriously, some fabulous people work here) and ALL gluten free! The staff can't even bring gluten for their lunches. A great answer for celiacs who feel a bit socially isolated...take all your friends to Asian Box!

    !st time ordering here. Have eaten at their location in Mtn. View many times. Not sure of authenticity, but the food is very good. Portion size is good. Not fancy but not cafeteria food, either. Some differences in offerings to additions to box meal here in Palo Alto. Spicer Peanut Sauce, and good. Not Thai Peanut Sauce recipe, but still good. Love that I can order freely and eat worry-free. Worth the price. Love the caramel egg. Steak, chicken and Tofu all tasty and good protein choices. Dairy free for majority of options too, which I am grateful for.

    Fantastic food and it was such a treat not have to worry about cross-contamination. My 14 year old Daughter has celiac and can be a picky eater. She loved the rice and chicken with lime sauce. The chicken is "5 spice", but was not spicy. I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 only because they didn't actually give me exactly what I ordered (white rice instead of brown rice), but what they gave me was still delicious.

    I finally made it to the basement of Macy's to try Asian Box. It was just before noon on a weekday and there was no line, but as I was eating the line formed out the door, so keep in mind this place is popular! You order at the left counter and pick up your box at the right counter. The vegan options for your box are extra veggies in lieu of protein or tofu. The toppings are vegan except for egg and so are the sauces. I removed a star because I did not get exactly what I ordered. I felt like all I got were noodles, tofu, sauce, and a few very small pieces of limp steamed veggies and I asked for many other toppings. So, beware if you go at the lunch rush the quality might suffer a bit.

    This place is hidden in the Macy's (it's on the bottom floor "C"). It's not the cheapest food but it was so delicious I ate every last bite (and I even splurged on extra meat). The food is made to order so it can take around 5 minutes depending on the meat you pick. Everything was well seasoned and very fresh. Best part is that it's ALL gluten free so completely safe for anyone with celiac!

    Great for grab-n-go Asian style food. The entire facility is gluten-free. They make their own sauces in house, and the noodles and wrappers, I believe, are made with rice. And when you're done, everything, down to the box the food came in, is either recyclable or compostable. They don't even offer a trashcan. They offer 4-6 meat choices, a few noodle and rice options, sauces, toppings, lots of veggies. You can build your own box or you can choose of their pre-built combinations. I love this place for its convenience and fast/healthy food.
