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.

We have tried sushi all over Cape Town and we keep coming back here. Generous fish to rice ratios, great combo offerings and some specialist sauces make this some of the very best sushi in the city. Aside that the service is sharp and the...More

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

We enjoyed a lovely evening at Sushi Box. The service is very good, atmosphere lovely and sushi is divine! It was busy for a Tuesday evening, but there were 1 or 2 tables open.

We live around the corner from Sushi Box Newlands! We have become so spoilt by the exceptional sushi offered there, in particular the prawn poppers and the crispy tempura rolls! It has become our special treat every weekend!! Great service by friendly staff to boot!!

Lots of sauces, mayo what hides the real taste of fish. This place i guess is fine for the junk food lovers in more sophisticated way - sushi. I personally love sushi for the natural quality fish or sea food ingredients. Not my place but...More

Very good sushi, one of the best we have had. Nicely presented and varied. A little expensive but worth it because of the quality. Highly recommended.

This has become a treat. Slightly expensive but worth it. Salmon Tacos and fusion box ftw! Never been a fan of sushi until I ate here
