“Not as good as it used to be!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2011

Have been going to the Ruby Palace for many years, however on our visit last night, we were all a little disappointed with our visit. We were welcomed in the usual friendly manner, and shown to our table. The drinks arrived almost immediately. House wine is excellent value for money. The disappointing part is that we had to wait a long time for the starters to arrive, and had been in the restaurant almost 2 hours before our main courses arrived. I appreciate that it was Christmas Eve, but it appeared to me they paid too much attention to the carryout side of the business and forgot about the diners. The food itself was good, but I have had better served to me in this restaurant. Staff very friendly as always. Will still go back here even though they have hiked their prices up...who hasn't though.

“Great Chinese Restaurant on Glasgow's South Side”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

The Ruby Palace is located on the south side of Glasgow. Parking - no meters around here - is usually to be found on the street close by. It's a relatively small place, run with passion and attention to detail by a welcoming family.

The menu is extensive and includes all the usual options, including selections for groups of two, four or more. There are pre-theatre special menus, too. You won't see the most exotic Chinese ingredients here - no ducks' feet or jellyfish - but what you will find is mainstream Chinese food - with nods here and there to Thai and Singaporean influences - that's impeccably cooked and beautifully presented, in notably generous portions.

The spare ribs are especially good and the salt and chilli ones exceptional. Prawn crackers appear on the table almost as soon as you've sat down and the service is superb throughout: as fast or as leisurely as you want it to be, and always cheerful. There's a good range of drinks, including Chinese beers and teas.

We've eaten here dozens of times and it's always been a real treat. I really can't recommend it too highly.
