“Not too disappointing or exciting.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

The people working gave excellent and timely service when I was in ordering. However, after I got home with my food, I noticed that one dish was made with chicken instead of tofu. This was a problem, since I am a vegetarian. If you are a meat eater who just wants a quick bite of Chinese food, I would recommend this place.

“Was not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I ordered dinner from here, fried rice, beef and broccoli, honey garlic chicken and sweet and sour chicken. I was not impressed, it was more amercian style chinese than real chinese food. The honey garlic chicken was batter fried with a honey garlic sauce.
The prices are ok. I would recommend one of the east buffets in margate instead.

“YES YES YES best Chinese in Ft. Lauderdale”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We just came back. It is tiny so I would order take out or order and go pick up if you are too far away. You can ask for it to be spicy (which I would do on the ones not marked spicy) but the taste was spot on otherwise (we do like spicy). We had General Tso Shrimp-- Perfect, Hunam Shrimp (ask for spicy) Shrimp Chop Suey (ask for spicy) Shrimp w Lobster sce (ask for spicy) The servings are huge but they do have a small portion collumn so you can taste lots of things Only 1 drawback--no brown rice. We will order again and again. The menu is huge

“Food/Price in Ruby Chen's is Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

During our two days stay in Fort Lauderdale, we visited Ruby Chen's twice and thanks to the advice from Tripadvisor, we really like the food there and the price is very reasonable. Would go there again if chance is given in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Great food at a good price. Pity it isn't a full sized restaurant.
