It's hard to find a good Chinese place but this one could be checked off the list because I ordered 2 common meals beef and broccoli tasted horrible no sauce and the beef was disgusting . My son took about 2-3 bites of his chicken and we threw it all in the trash where it belongs . I'd rather eat... More

When I first moved to the area the Rice Box was amazing. The food was fresh and every order was delicious. A few months ago that all changed. Since then I've tried ordering from them a few more times, but after the last order I will never order from them again. The quality of the food has declined seriously. My... More

I always order online here. You just click there menu items you want and then check if you want to pick-up eat-in or have them bring it to you. No calling or no hassle with lines or parking. quick and easy. You can also pick the delivery time.

It took the girl more than 10 min to place my order over the phone. She didn't know how to put things in the computer and had to ask her manager how to do things. Then she still tried to order the wrong things for me. Before getting off the phone she told me that it would be about 40... More

I've been a "take out" customer of Rice Box for a couple of years, but tonight will be my last dinner patronizing this restaurant. While I was originally impressed with the quality of the dishes (i.e. crisp, fresh vegetables) and the efficient service, I've noticed a noticeable decline in not only the quality of the food, but the care and...

Excellent reviews on trip advisor led us to feed our hungry fam on our way home from vaca. We are very surprised about the excellent reviews. The quality of food at Rice Box was disappointing. The chicken with mixed vegetables was mushy and tasted weird. The service was "just ok". The pork dumplings were huge and unappetizing. The skewers of... More

We had gone to the Rice Box a year ago and wrote a great review. Last week our family and some friends were at a beach house and decided take out would be better than all going to a restaurant. We ordered from the Rice Box and it was another fabulous experience. The order for 10 came hot, well packaged... More

I have been here before and I just have to add this bit of information. I ordered from the Rice Box on Friday May 10, 2013. I picked up the order and drove home to enjoy the meal with my family. When I got it home we noticed that there was an item missing from the bag. I was getting... More
