I... LOVE this place! The concept is not original but the food is delicious! Everything is gluten-free and you get many choices to customize your box. You can't really go wrong with any of the options because they all taste great together. As someone who has been trying to eat healthy after the holidays but doesn't want the food to *taste* too healthy, this is the perfect place. First you choose a base (choice of jasmine rice, brown rice, asian salad, rice noodles) and then a meat (pork, chicken, beef, shrimp, tofu). I went with the asian salad for the extra veggies and the beef. You automatically get wok sauteed veggies (or you can opt for steamed) and other veggie toppings such as picked carrots, bean sprouts, etc. My box was literally an explosion of yummy veggies. And of course you get to choose your sauce. I went with the tamarind, but I'm sure the other sauces are delicious too. Tl;dr tasty healthy box of veggies and meat.

Not for coeliac people unfortunately :( I am gluten highly intolerant and dairy intolerant, I took a box with veggies and shrimps (and no sauce). It was fresh & yummy, but I can tell that it wasn't gluten free because it made me sick and I got both the stomac and skin reactions and that was the only new thing I had in my day.

Asian Box makes really delicious and fast Asian fusion food. I've been here so many times because they're so consistent with their food. This restaurant is somewhat like advanced Chipotle for Asian foods. There are certainly a lot more choices to choose. Here's what I recommend: Base: Chilled Rice Noodles because the brown rice and jasmine rice are a bit plain in comparison. However, this is the least important choice since the rest of the ingredients easily drown out the base. Meat: Go with your favorite. Beef, shrimp, and chicken are my favorites. Topps: You MUST get the crispy shallots. They are amazing. I like them just as much as I love the legendary grilled onions from Liba Falafel. I also recommend the chopped peanuts, bean sprouts, and scallion oil. Skip the caramel eggs. Sauce: I recommend mixing Peanut Sauce and Miss Jones' Sriracha. It's the perfect blend, and it's not too spicy. Tamarind Vinaigrette + Peanut Sauce and No-Oil Fish Sauce + Peanut Sauce are also great combos. In fact, you just can't go wrong mixing Peanut Sauce with anything. The Palo Alto location for Asian Box has been open much longer than the Mountain View location. I've found that service is slightly better in their MV location, and building there looks better too.

Delicious asian quick food without being too unhealthy. Don't miss their crispy shallot, fresh herbs toppings and peanut sauce. They are absolute yummy. Make sure to get hot-box-it on the side as it is really hot. Although food is little on expensive side and seating is not that great, it was overall a great experience.

Satisfying asian inspired chipotle style rice and/or noodle bowls served up pretty fast. I like the options of sauces and proteins (which include shrimp), but wish there were a few more veggie options.

If you love the culinary excellence of The Slanted Door in San Francisco and the ease of Chipotle dining, then Asian Box is your new go-to restaurant. The concept is simple- select a base (rice, salad, or noodles), choose your protein (tofu, chicken, pork, beef, shrimp), add desired veggies and toppings, and finish it off with a sauce (hint: always go with the peanut sauce). I love Asian Box because I know the ingredients are fresh and sourced locally. The gourmet-fast food is healthy and paleo and gluten-free friendly! Bay Area locations currently exist in Palo Alto, Mountain View, and SF.

Good people/service. Fresh food. They never mind customizing EXACTLY as you want it. Just a pleasant experience all around, everytime. If you don't have a lot of time to eat but want well prepared, fresh food this is your new joint.
