Love the lunch at Thai Ruby

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... read 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

I like Thai food & not disappointed. It's clean, bright, service good. I'm from Scotland & believe it or not we have some pretty authentic Thai restaurants which are great & although this place isn't as great it's pretty good & I'd go back. The staff are lovely the menu is good and all in all a good experience

On our last visit all of our orders came out wrong and the server was just ok. So Beware! Had to ask several times for napkins and for water.

Thai Ruby is a very attractive restaurant that is matched by its food. I have not been to Thailand, but I have eaten in Thai restaurants in the USA, and this is one of the best. I had the chicken and cashews and my wife had the tofu and vegetables. We both enjoyed our meal very much. It did not... More

Significantly toned down in spice and heat level to suit local retired population. Having lived for a year in Thailand and eating here three times we will not return.

In an area dominated by chain restaurants, and 2-3 of many of them, Thai Ruby stands out. The food is very good and the service is always top notch. The decor also transports you away from "the biubble". definitely a pleasant change from the usual fare in The Villages.

That's a beautifully decored place :) Good menu. Good service. Great food. That's a special place, set up so fancy, the outside fools you. The food and service are wonderful. If you can find parking try it.

You should enjoy yourself if you eat here. The staff was so friendly and the food was right on course with what you'd expect from a nice thai restaurant.
