Great Thai

We enjoyed seafood dishes that were spiced just right. The shrimp dish had delicious large shrimp. The restaurant was comfortable with a relaxed quiet atmosphere. Service was good, friendly staff.

Nice, quiet, Chinese restaurant. Easy to get to, easy to park either car or golf cart. We really enjoyed the food. It is quiet and relaxing. We like to be able to converse while dining, and that is easily accomplished here. The service was also excellent.

We had never been to The Villages and didn't know what to expect, so when we saw this little restaurant (with a long line), we knew it had to be good. And, it was! The lunch special was one of the better that I've had; It included soup, a little appetizer, and an entree for $8.50. It was fast, fresh,... More

Nothing against the all American burger, but Thai Ruby gives such a nice alternative. The won ton soup was raised a level up by the delicious rice noodles and tasty won tons. Sweet and sour chicken was so much better without being saturated in fried breading. The chicken and noodles, our other entree was a more than adequate portion size,... More

We had a great experience. It was well worth the 25 minute wait for our table. Service was excellent and the Pad Thai was outstanding. Also enjoyed the crab Rangoon.

This restaurant takes reservations which is a plus during the busy winter season, when the snowbirds arrive. The decor is very peaceful with wonderful service. You can eat quickly if in a hurry or linger on and enjoy the food and the company of the people you are with. The menu has many options for all types of appetites. One... More

I have been to Thai Ruby several times since moving here over a year ago. It has never disappointed. This is quite a feat. The staff is amazing--pleasant, efficient, and informative about the ingredients and spice levels of the menu offerings. My personal favorite is the Pad Thai listed under the Noodles section. The sweet tangy sauce is among the... More

These guys are at the top of their game. Not trying to be sushi or any other Asian cuisine dujour- just real Thai - just the way I like it...Thai spicy! Connoisseurs up and down the East Coast agree, this is as authentic as it gets in America. They handled our 14 top like troopers and every time I've been... More
