Five of us descended on this restaurant without booking which was a mistake - we should have book. It is very popular and we had to sit in the passageway near the door. It was a Tuesday evening and it was busy. The staff were run off their feet! However, the service was very good as was the menu which should be read carefully. Food ordered and soon consumed - it was very good. Cost was reasonable and the staff very obliging.

Been here a few times with my partner, we have the "All You Can Eat". Plenty to choose from and the portions are filling. Excellent tasting food that seems to get tastier with every visit. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Also offers an a la carte menu, so there's always plenty to choose from.

I recently dined at the Ruby with 11 other friends. We all chose the "All you can eat" menu for £14.99. In the small print it says supplement for prawn dishes. When we received the bill the supplement charge was £26!!! This was for 3 prawn dishes and prawn toast!!! The drinks are very expensive with no drinks list available. One and half pints, two bottles of Chinese beer, 2 glasses of wine and 4 cokes came to £36. Wont be dining there again, the food is really good but dont like being ripped off, take plenty of cash if you go.

I have been here a few times and the food has always been good and fixed price always good value. However, they seemed to have stepped up another level - the food seemed tastier, all different tastes , really freshly cooked and the service was very efficient and welcoming. The two friends we went with were equally impressed and we all left planning our next visit. A great night out!

We arrived for a 7.30 booking to find this restaurant really busy. The decor is basic but food proved to be good. Bit of a confusing start as we were given someone else's food before we had ordered. Poor choice of drinks but pretty typical for a restaurant like this Went for the a la carte menu as we really wanted to try the dim sum. Some dishes were unavailable as the waiter explained that most people preferred the all you can eat menu (you choose a certain number of dishes depending on the size of your party and then reorder when you have eaten them) We still had a reasonable selection then some main courses - everything was very tasty but did take a while to come; this wasn't a problem for us and the restaurant was very busy. May try the all you can eat next time.
