Sushi rice is sticky to help it adhere to the rolls’ exteriors and catch restive chopsticks running off to join a jar of No. 2 pencils. Keep your food from jumping ship with today’s Groupon to Sushi Box in Waltham. Choose between the following options:

The multiculturally talented chefs at Sushi Box slice and stir-fry recipes culled from across Asia. Guests can gorge on Korean comestibles such as spicy pork bulgogi, a plate of thinly sliced pork marinated in spicy sauce ($15.95), or send their tongues on a chartered cruise to Thailand, where salted fresh vegetables practice synchronize swimming in a lake of curry sauce ($9.95). Alternately, sate culinary wanderlust with Japanese fare such as the sushi pizza roll, a cylindrical mix of crab salad and yellow tail baked in mayo sauce and sprinkled with scallions and tobiko ($11.95). For larger groups, the sushi party boat serves up two dozen pieces of nigri sushi, 18 bites of sashimi, and spicy tuna, california, and spider rolls ($89.95), enough eats to sustain the whole family or a travelling gang of trapeze artists.
Sushi Box's menus draw from the culinary traditions of Japan, Thailand, and Korea, filling white-swathed tables with pan-regional dishes. Chefs glaze entrees of beef ribs, stir-fried kimchi, and thinly sliced pork with incendiary sauces, earning praise from the Boston Phoenix in 2009 for their ability to "showcase the joys of Korean cuisine." They also simmer vegetables in thai curry sauces and fill their specialty maki with premium sushi ingredients, including sweet-potato tempura and nori harvested by mermaids.
