100% gluten free. However if you have a normal persons palate, the food is not very good. We just went and ordered 5 different boxes, none of us could eat much. Disappointed for sure.

The food is delicious and sized perfectly. It is 100% gluten-free and the food is fresh. You can make your own box with 5 choices of protein (including tofu), 4 bases, simple add-ins and new unique sauces. We will certainly be back more than once.

Love Asian Box! Fresh, delicious and 100% gluten free. I ask for extra/double wok tossed veggies, which helps offset all of the rice. I ask for sauces on the side so I can eat some now, some later. Highly recommend!

This place saved my life when moving to this area. I never have to specify my Celiac Disease here, as it is 100% gluten free. Moreover, it is reasonably price for the area, and I always have leftovers for the next day! My only VERY small complaint is the amount of meat they have in their dishes. It's so good, and I wish there was more!

As a newly diagnosed celiac, this place has been a life-saver for me. I've eaten here almost once a week for the last several months and have never gotten sick - in fact, after any gluten-related events that have occurred (like accidental CC from non-GF roommates), I come here to get "safe" food while trying to figure out what went wrong in my kitchen. Definitely recommend!

!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.

Food was good but not plentiful. For the price, there should be more veggies, which surprised me. I had the Fisherman's basket. Fish was seasoned well & moist. My daughter (celiac) had the children's cold rice noodles, pork, & veggies with a caramel sauce that is GF. In laws got pork & shrimp with Siracha. They liked but said it was super spicey. For three adults, 1 child, ice tea, lemonade & a flavored carbonated water, total was about $40. Was nice that I didn't have to worry about cc, though, since it is s gf dedicated facility:)

The food is awesome! Wish I could leave a better review. Was visiting from out of town. Noticed beer on tap and got excited about possibility of local gf beer. I asked the server to confirm it was gluten free. He asked the manager who said it was. After a few sips I decided to google to make sure. Lo and behold, this company does not make any gluten free beer. It was odd since there are signs that this is a dedicated facility when you walk in. I let the staff know and all 4 team members had no idea, and sort of shrugged saying it was just what they had been told. I’m celiac and this is probably the most gluten I’ve had in years so it was a huge bummer and detracted from the great food. I called the general manager the next day. He was very apologetic and said he would educate his staff and perhaps put up a sign. I wasn’t expecting this from a place that markets itself in this way.

A solid 4-star experience. I love that they are 100% gluten free as it makes it so easy to order with gluten allergies or celiac! The inside is clean and modern, though seating is a bit limited. I ordered the “workout” box and the chicken seasoning was really yummy. However the overall contents of the box were a bit off - the sauce on the chicken did not nearly cover the veggies or rice so half was totally bland and half had a little sauce on it. The amount of protein (chicken) was also very small and not as filling as other similar type of restaurants in other cuisines. The cold bean sprouts and veggies made the chicken and rice lukewarm which was not so good either. The value for the price is decent. I would be back if I needed gluten free food in a pinch, but wouldn’t recommend for a filling meal or if you prefer a well-balanced meal.

I love this place. I feel totally safe eating here. Last week I had a new menu item, the banh mi sandwich, and I’m obsessed! The bread was fantastic, the whole thing was just delicious. I wish they had Coke products like they used to. They’ve switched to Pepsi. But it’s worth it for that sandwich.

This is my favorite Asian Box location. The service is great, with friendly cashiers and cooks. Today I had a pleasant surprise when I noticed they added a banh mi sandwich to the menu! Of course, I decided to give it a try. It was literally one of those first bites where you have to close your eyes just to take it in. Deliciously seasoned pork, a delicous array of cucumber, carrots and cilantro and a decadent, creamy sauce. The bread is so good I can't believe it's gluten-free. And I tasted that juicy pork even up to the very last bite! I am just blown away. I am so happy Ms. Jones decided to move this from the test kitchen to the Asian Box menu and I really hope it stays! Good sandwiches like this are hard to come by, celiac or not.
