Okay place

Not as good as some Thai restaurants that I have tried....food was quite mild, but apparently you can ask to have it hotter and spicier. The appetizer platter for two was a great way to sample several from the available choices.

We have been here a couple of times. We love Thai food and consider this restaurant one of the better Thai food restaurants that we have been to. The people are very nice and the service has been great both times. Prices are very reasonable. We really love Pad Thai. Their Seafood Pad Thai is to die for. Perfectly prepared... More

For whatever reason, the last time I went to this restaurant, a few years ago, it seemed rather pricey (although the food was good). This time, I thought the bill was very reasonable (and the food still good). I would say that the quality of the food is a step up from the usual Villages restaurant. Pleasant décor too. We... More

Friends took me to check out the Ruby in The Villages, Florida, they loved it and thought I would also. The place has an interesting facade and the interior is interesting yet a little dark and gloomy, but that is just me and I even like dark woods. Lots of folks go there, the place was full, good thing we... More

This is a warm lovely place to enjoy a delicious meal with family or friends. The atmospere is soothing and the food is light and flavorful. I always seem to order the pineapple fried rice as my entre because it is filled with my favorite seafood. You will enjoy your visit to this small oriental restaurant in the Villages.

We ate here with friends who had never had Thai food. We always love it but they were most pleasantly surprised. The food is absolutely delicious with the perfect atmosphere to go with it!

This was our first visit to Thai Ruby and we were impressed with the serene surroundings, the quality of the food, and the service. Definitely the best Thai restaurant we have eaten at since moving to Florida two and a half years ago.

A great thing about Thai Ruby is that you can hear the people at your table. There is a sort of calm that prevails there, eliminating the need to shout. We especially enjoy lunch- a plentiful serving of entree served with a clear soup and some delicate, crisp oriental pastries, I find the red curry always delightful. YOu will enjoy... More

The food here is very similar to what is served in Bangkok restaurants. However, if you don't specify otherwise, it will be served "Americanized", or not very spicy. Just ask them to make it authentic.

My wife and I ate dinner there and enjoyed the meal. We have eaten there several times and never been disappointed. I had the amazing beef. Lots of peanut flavoring which I like but my wife does not care for it. A bit sweet but and would be too much if a lot were consumed. My wife had a shrimp... More
