Good food at a reasonable price - give it a try.

Food isn't bad and it is authentic for the most part. We usually go in for lunch and never have a problem getting a seat. Not a bad little place. Staff are very polite and they usually remember us each time we come in. :-)

Best sushi and bento box meal in the area. I've been coming here for several years, despite their name (and/or management) changes and they've always delivered good quality food. They're not on the cheap side for a meal but it's been very tasty. If you like scallops, try the Volcano maki (it's cooked). They also have a great bento dinner... More

We've enjoyed quite a few meals at the Sushi Box - several lunches, a celebratory dinner with family, dinner with friends - and always enjoyed it. The food is very good; the service is excellent; the restaurant is very pleasant. It's nice to have a choice between Japanese, Korean and sushi because there's something here for everybody. The tempura is... More

I went here with 3 other colleagues and I was very unimpressed. We were the ONLY table at 6pm on a Monday night and the service was AWFUL. The waitress gave us a "I really don't care about you at all" attitude and never refilled my water in over an hour. We even had to ask her to come over... More

I have been eating at this location for many years now, under many different owners. It is called the Sushi Box out front at present. I usually get the shrimp and vegetable tempura, with maki and miso. The tempura tasted like older oil and slightly overcooked. Hard to evaluate the batter under these conditions. The miso was heavy and the... More

Visiting son at nearby school and found small sushi restaurant called Yasu Sushi on Gamin GPS. But sign says Sushi Box. Sushi very good and quantity and price reasonable to what I pay in Los Angeles for family-style sushi. We went on a Thursday night and the place was packed. Service adequate. We're going there next time I'm in Waltham... More

My wife and I were visiting in the Boston area lookijng for some sushi. This restaurant was listed as Yasu Sushi in the Garmin but seemed to have been renamed the Sushi Box according to the marquis. We had sushi and sashimi. The sushi was great. Rolls seemed larger than I'm accustomed to and very good. Sashimi was fresh and... More

Not the best, or the worst, but somewhere on the side of unremarkable. When I think of this place all I want to do is smile.
