We had no idea, when we made a reservation at Sushi Box, what a great sushi dining experience was ahead of us. Sushi Box is located on Sapir St, just around the corner from Maskit 27. There is one public pay parking lot at the end of the street and a large public parking lot on Maskit Street.
Sushi Box is a clean and comfortable restaurant. There is bar seating on the entrance level, tables upstairs and outdoor tables at the entrance.
We sat upstairs, perched over the action of the restaurant. The decor is minimalist, with Asian themes. Without going too far, the decor has just enough Asian elements so that you know where you are. The banister, we noticed, has Asian symbols and the art work and menu have Asian designs.
About The Sushi Box Menu
The Sushi Box menu is mostly vegetarian with fish. There are very few meat dishes. So few that I wonder why they do not just go completely parve. Fish is the king of this menu, with many fish-based sushi options and fish-based rice dishes. There are many vegetarian options.
We started our meal with two sushi platters prepared by the Japanese sushi chef. The sushi pieces were big and beautiful, and were served with enough wasabi so that we did not have to ask for more. The sushi came with two sauces, teriyaki and spicy mayonnaise, and soy sauce is on the table. The Vegie Special, inside outs, were just perfect and even though I am not a fan of raw fish, the Special Nigri, rice topped with salmon, was excellent.
In addition to a large variety of sushi, the menu also offers rice dishes. We chose the Salmon Chirashi, an excellent dish of rice, avocado, scallions, topped with cooked chunks of salmon. This is not a dish that you will find in most sushi restaurants, and I recommend it highly.

A little goes a long way:
These three dishes - two sushi platters and one rice dish, were a full meal for myself and my companion.
