CLOSED. But I remember them well...tasty, good value, fresh, and oh, safe for us!
We just got here and found out they closed a few days ago. Bummer
Absolutely delicious and totally gluten free. If I lived in San Francisco I'd be eating here all the time.
super friendly, this place is a gem. food was amazing and everything is gf 👍👍👍👍
Safe and delicious!
Eat here almost every week. Order at counter place hidden in basement food court of Macy's. Delicious, flavorful variety.
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
Absolutely fabulous. I could eat here every day. All fresh ingredients cooked to order. Dedicated gluten free restaurant. Jalapeños are fresh and HOT. LOVED every single bite. Located in Macy's on the lowest C level. Next to Union Square.
This made me so happy. I had the rice noodles with coconut curry tofu but I can't wait to try the whole menu.
Totally GF. No disclaimers telling you to beware of you are celiac. Tastes great too
Can't say how important places like this are for my extremely gluten-intolerant husband and I. Safe, yummy, & satisfying!
Downstairs in Macy's, an easy build-your-own bowl of GF/DF goodness. It made lunch easy, stress free, and was delicious too!
Delicious shrimp salad with Asian greens. All gluten free! Celiac heaven.
1st time here! The food is so good, big portions, and safe! The spring rolls in the peanut sauce are amazing.
Gluten-free establishment, great selection, excellent food.
So great! Although when they say the Hot Box is spicy they're not joking. My boyfriend is the most tolerant person of spicy food I've ever met and he couldn't even finish it!
Really fresh ingredients! Food was amazing.
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.
Everything on menu is gluten free, fresh, local, all natural ingredients. It's a great place for a quick bite to eat.
Amazing. Everything is GF. Love it
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.
Very taste food! Super friendly staff! They even have compostable plastic forks! GF and eco conscience.
Incredible food! It's so nice not having to worry about what you can eat but can choose anything on the menu as a celiac! Very nice people and excellent ingredients, can't wait to go back.
Oh my gosh, I love this place! It's a hidden gem in the basement of Macy's. Everything is GF. It's like an Asian Chipotle. I ordered Box 1 and it was delicious!
Everything's GF here. The food is so good! Lots and lots of flavor. To get there, go into the Macy's and take the escalator down. There's a food court done there Nf that's where you'll find this gem. It's so good that you'll want to come back every day.
Great food. Fresh and healthy. Great to be able to order anything on the menu. A gem for anyone with celiacs. I will be a frequent customer.
Everything GF and tastes great!
Just as good as the other locations and now has a full bar open, as well.
Everything is gluten free and delicious. The bar even has hard cider in tap!!
Entire menu is gluten free! Really great food, perfect portion size, great service. Bottom floor of Macy's
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!
Very good food for a good price. It was so nice to have the option of ordering anything off the menu.
So, so good. It's always nice to be able to eat Asian food. I would these open up throughout the country.
Super good! Fresh and dairy free too! I didn't realize it was inside Macy's Nd almost gave up looking for it. So glad I didn't.
So good! Everything on the menu is gluten free, it was so nice to know I could order anything and not worry about cross-contamination. Wish this was a nationwide chain! Great fresh ingredients!
Great fresh food
Excellent! I've been here multiple times, no symptoms afterwards (yes, I actually get physically sick) and everything I've ordered has been really good. That said, they aren't quite 100% GF - they sell regular beer... ;-) Not likely to cross-contaminate, certainly!
This place is fantastic I can't believe it doesn't have more reviews!! 💯 Gluten free everything! We ordered the Vietnam Surf box and the shrimp spring rolls. They were both Fantastic and the sauces were tangy and delicious! I love Asian inspired food so I was very happy! The box portions were generous so I felt I got what I paid for! Will be returning!!
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.
All Gluten Free! The food is fresh and delicious! Build your own meal from a variety of protein and sauce choices. I enjoyed the rice, chicken and curry sauce box with pickled vegetables and bean sprouts. They are 100% gluten free and do not allow gluten in the restaurant 😍
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.
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.
Great, flavorful food. Everything is gluten free. Staff is very friendly and food came out quickly.
Easy and delicious.
I love this restaurant! It's so comforting and stress free knowing that I can walk in and order anything I want and I don't have to worry about what's in it, or if there is any cross contamination! Such a plus, and the food is amazing!
Super delicious. I got mine with Tamarind Vinaigrette and their "street dust." I felt very comfortable eating here since everything is gluten free. I saw a sign that they now serve pho as well. Quick service too!
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.
This small restaurant chain is doing a bang-up business serving simply made yet delicious and very fresh Asian rice and noodle dishes. The whole restaurant is gluten-free so no need to ask about cross contamination or the soy sauce!
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!!
Asian Box is delicious and is 100 percent gluten free! We went with friends and our whole party loved it! As an extremely sensitive celiac, this is a dream come true because I have not gotten sick! They have the perfect blend of ingredients! We will definitely be returning often! :) :) :)
pretty good for quick food while at Macy's. All gluten free.
Love this place!!
