  • Sushi in a Box is great place for first-time Japanese cuisine diners or folks who love the flavors, but are not too discerning. Serious Japanese food-enthusiasts are better off sticking to expat-run places for the real deal
  • The team behind Sushi in a Box knows what they are doing. Ejhaz & Co had been running a sushi delivery (hence, Sushi in a box) since 2013, and have a fair idea about what sells and what does not
  • The Japanese are not particularly well known for their sweet tooth. If you would rather have something traditionally decadent - try the pain au chocolat from the bakery downstairs - shipped everyday from the legendary Bakerstreet in Puducherry

Amit Speaks

3.7 /5

Sushi remains an intimidating exotica in Chennai, in spite of the provenance of excellent expat-run Japanese restaurants and access to fresh seafood. If you have been following Indian restaurant trends over the past decade, you will know the secret-sauce that has made sushi into the ‘new butter chicken’ up in Delhi and Mumbai. The secret is that there is sauce, and lots of it. Enough creamy wasabi mayonnaise to convert, even the most stubborn ‘raw-fish’ skeptic. Sushi in a Box smartly chooses to enter this fabulously promising genre of fun, accessible Japanese food in Chennai. There is the very instagrammable dining room with sunken seat bunks, surrounded by Manga and striking reds. The menu is much more than just sushi in a box - featuring everything from zaru soba to okonomiyaki, nearly half of which is vegetarian.

About Sushi In A Box, Teynampet, Chennai

Japanese food is still finding its feet in Chennai even though its home to a wide Japanese expat community and abundant fresh seafood. Indian palate is yet to fall in love with the raw flavour of the fare which takes a little time to acquire. Japanese cuisine may have become a raving success in Delhi or Mumbai but in Chennai majority of the diners are still sceptic about eating raw fish. But the crop of expat-run restaurants have started to turn around the thinking of local diners. There are plenty of Japanese restaurants in the city which serves authentic Japanese fare but there are few who have tried to tune down the Japanese-ness to suit the local palate. ‘Sushi In A Box’ at Teynampet is a quaint little place opened by someone who is already aware about the demands of the locals. They have modified the authentic flavour to satisfy the needs of the local diners.
