We chose to have takeout rather than wait for a table -- there was a long wait for a party of six on Saturday night. So, we ordered appetizers, soup, pad thai and panang curry. Well, it was a very overpriced, very mediocre portion -- very little meat, shrimp or vegetables in the pad thai and curry. The fresh spring... More

If you like Thai food, I would recommend this restaurant. The food was excellent, service was prompt and pleasant even on a busy New Years Eve. Good value.

I was pleasantly surprised by how good our dinner was. I ordered the Chicken Panang Curry and would definitely order it again. I find the dish is usually hit or miss when traveling and it's hard to make it like they do at my favorite Thai restaurant back home (Seattle). But tonight I found a restaurant that makes it just...

First time here. Comfortably decorated. Early dinner sparsely populated. Menu is long and was accompanied by a two sided specials list. Server was back at our table twice within a few minutes expecting orders despite our request for time to wade through the offerings. Sweet and sour shrimp and a shrimp curry dish, shu shi shrimp. Both dishes appeared within... More

We revisited this restaurant as my last visit I felt the chicken dishes were a bit bland. They added specials and also now offer different sauces, or flavors to the chicken dishes. I ordered a chicken lettuce wrap appetizer which was bursting with flavors. Definitely impressed with this dish. The wonton soup was flavorful as well as the duck served... More

We had doctor's appointments up in the Villages and decided to give Thai Ruby a try for lunch and were very pleased with the meal. The menu was nice and the food was delicious! I had the Padang Chicken and my mother had the Cashew Chicken and we both loved it! We also really liked the decor it was pretty... More

After the Christmas lightning it seemed to be a good idea to have dinner at Thai Ruby's. It was not very busy but we got a nice place and the waiter did bring the menu, after a minute he did ask if we had decided -and I told him we needed more time. After a minute again he came to... More

Thai Ruby is the only Thai restaurant in The Villages, conveniently located in Lake Sumter Landing. Unfortunately, the Thai food (at least recently) to my palate is not as tasty as authentic Thai cuisine, most likely because they are serving older customers who may not want unusual or spicy food. I ask for my meals to be spiced up but... More
