We have gotten take out and delivery and always have an excellent meal. Definitely one of our favorite go to spots. The Pad Thai is something we order often.

My girlfriend recommended it. Don't think she's been there in a while. Hands down the worst Chinese food I've ever had. We had pad Thai, lo mein, egg rolls.... etc. It all sucked. Not sure what the Chinese word for flavor is but they don't know it. If I didn't live 40 minutes away I would demand a refund. You're... More

I ordered take out for my wife and I. It was our first time being there. Place looked nice and the service was also good. We took our food back to our place. I thought most of the food wasn't fresh and tasted terrible. The only thing I somewhat liked was the lo mien. I think I threw out more... More

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

I had my credit card info. used at a Chinese herb store after doing an online order from here. My last review still sticks. But use cash only.

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...
