The waitress doesn’t acknowledge your presence, doesn’t make eye contact, was very rude and uninviting. There is not enough waitresses to take and bring orders. We arrived at 18.30 and took our order 10 minutes later. 2/3 drinks ordered arrived at 19.00 and at 19.20...More

6pm Saturday- virtually empt, only 3 tables occupied. However the three serving staff seemed incapable - not like they had a lot on. Service was dire, food great as usual. If they don’t sort this out this place will suffer.

Sushi box offers a cute and intimate setting with few tables. It was a bit unfortunate that we had to personally approach a server to request them to take our order after a considerable wait. The signature rolls and sashimi were definitely worth the wait....More

The place is small but super inviting. Jonathan was our waiter and was so helpful and accommodating. Because Sushi Box has no liquor licensing, he recommended a good spot next door to get a bottle of wine; no corkage charged! He also kindly offered to...More
