Our party of 22 dined at noon on Sunday 13 January, and the tables had been arranged for us, using two Lazy Susans to serve the buffet choices. The drinks were ordered first, then we enjoyed several courses, finishing with ice cream or fritters. Without exception the food was tasty, piping hot and well presented, incorporating prawns, chicken and beef in the different dishes. Extra food was supplied on request to diners.

When we finished just before 3pm everyone was impressed with the food and the overall ambiance of the Ruby; it is surprising that only two other TripAdvisor reviews have been posted since we were here exactly a year ago. If you are looking for a party booking, but with an individual touch, the Ruby is certainly worth considering. Its position in the TripAdvisor rankings for Birmingham does not reflect the quality of the cuisine or service; it is a hidden gem.

I have been visiting this restaurant with my family for many years, and it is simply fantastic value with their set price menu, where you order whatever food you like, and it is cooked fresh to order. The decor is traditional, the menu superb, the staff excellent and i have never had a bad dish at this place. Its a real hidden gem.

Nice, quiet, well decorated Cantonese Chinese Restaurant. The food was quite good, and the service was very good.

Our party of 17 from a professional association was booked in for lunch at mid-day, and we were welcomed on arrival, shown to our two circular tables, and the drinks order was promptly taken. The starters and main courses were served using a Lazy Susan, and comprised a wide range of very tasty Chinese dishes. This was only my second visit to a Chinese restaurant, and I found the food to be excellent; several others in the group were regular diners at various Chinese restaurants, and agreed that Ruby's was well up to the best of them. The sweets consisted of ice cream or fritters.

The Ruby has its own private car park at the rear and side of the restaurant, which is just of the Hagley Road. The decor is traditional Chinese, which adds to the atmosphere of the establishment.

If you are looking for a Chinese restaurant, the Ruby is well worth a look; you will enjoy both the food and the attentive service.
