Good Desserts, Decent Thai Food

I am a Thai fan. As a Thai restaurant, you can't go wrong with me unless I fall ill from eating your food. Food: I had the kang masaman (masaman curry) and tried the pineapple curry as well as the absurd shrimp appetizer and chicken satay appetizer a colleague ordered. Masaman is a... read more

Ruby of Siam is an old timer that has kept up with popular tastes. It has an ever broadening menu that recognizes health and taste preferences of its patrons. Servings are ample, staff is candid about favorites (and not-so-favorites), and chefs are happy to respect patron's taste preferences. Ruby is popular, especially for dinner, and it has a right to...

Had better food before. Dined after a long time in this restaurant. Tom Yum soup was sweet, Pad Thai was average. Restaurant owner should strive for cleaner restrooms.

We've never had a bad meal here (and we eat here every 2-3 weeks). Lots of variety, fine service, BYOB. (There's Produce World next door with beer and wine.) Always busy but never too crowded to be seated.

In Skokie for a concert, needed lunch, found Ruby very near bye. Spring roll unusual & great with very fresh ingredients & slices of very zippy pepper. Tilapia w/lime, tamarind & sticky rice well prepared , bright & fresh. Fish lightly breaded; nice and crisp. Attentive service. Nice experience!

We love to go for Thai food as a family because this restaurant always delivers. It is well-decorated, and the kids feel very comfortable there. The food is great and we never have to wait long to get it (important with kids). We especially love the lime chicken which is available as an appetizer or entree, and have never found... More

This is still our go-to Thai restaurant but the food is not as good as it used ot be. It seems like it's not consistent anymore. One time, the pad thai is greasy, the next time the satay is overcooked. We're hoping that they get back to their previous excellence.

This Thai restaurant was not crowded which was very nice for two hungry people. We ate there two nights in a row. The food was good -- not fantastic, but definitely good -- and the service was very pleasant. Prices were reasonable. We would definitely go back when we are in the area again.
