We had a lovely lunch at Tai Ruby. Service was excellent. The wait staff was very familiar with the menu and was able to answer all our questions. We ordered from the lunch menu which started with a hot steamy soup and fried wonton. Delicious! We no sooner finished the soup and our entrees were delivered. Each dish was beautifully... More

Probably will not return. Not a lot of food for the price and was common American style Chinese food. I arrived at 2:55 and they would not honor their lunch special that is listed until 3:00. They finally did when they went in the back to ask permission. Only a handful of people there which usually says something about a... More

Looking for a great place for lunch, at a reasonable price, Thai Ruby is the place to visit. Soup, and an wonton to start off with, then your meal (several selections) and then a dessert to finish.The soup is excellent and I love the Cashew Chicken plate for lunch. Thats a package deal, one price for all. The decor of... More

We love Thai Ruby. It is our special lunch treat. The staff is friendly and the food is really good. Lunch includes soup, a wonton and sauce, the entree, and a sweet banana at the end. Definitely a keeper!

Had dinner here quite a few times. In a sea of chain restaurants and ordinary food. This place is a little gem. Service is good, staff helpful and food delish!!

This villages restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and good staff. Service is pleasant and choices are good. Problem for those knowledgable about Thai cooking is the spices which are seriously dumbed down. My wife and I have been twice and both times the food has been very bland with none of the complexity that characterizes good Thai cooking. There are... More

This may be the biggest secret in The Villages. It is a really good restaurant serving traditional Thai dishes as well as the more Americanized variety. It's located on Canal Street a couple blocks off the square in Lake Sumter Landing, but the hostess and many of the staff dress like they were back home in Thailand.
