“Fast, friendly and a great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

There's a reason why this restaurant wins a handful of the local media awards for their food. While pretty short on atmosphere, they still sling some of the best round eye Chinese food around. Don't expect other Chinese people to come here for authenticity because it isn't that sort of place; it's strictly Americanized Chinese food. Don't expect dim sum. Don't expect fancy silverware. Don't expect candlelit tables. But do expect some solid food for the price. This is a place that's been on my regular rotation of restaurants for years.

“A little gem in the Frendale desert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

The food here is always good, nice selection, lightning fast friendly service, and inexpensive. Maybe not the candlelight and tablecloth biz --it is extremely informal -- but for a nice tasty sit down meal or carryout it can't be beat --easily one of the best Chinese places around

“The best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012 via mobile

We have been going to China Ruby for 10 years we love the reasonable prices and the quality of the food. We have never had a bad meal or experience. We love Tina and her award winning cozy Resturant.

“The food was just plain bad!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2011

My wife and I tried it July 29, 2011 - not a good idea. The food was just plain bad! The chicken, in the Almond Chicken looked like, but tasted worse, than reheated MaDonald's Chicken Nuggets. My wife was unable to eat hers. The Orange Beef was passable, but the bamboo in it was so tough they could be recycling old flooring. The Egg Drop Soup had no taste at all and there were no Rice Noodles to go with it; however, there were packs of stale saltines, if you wanted crackers. The Staff seemed friendly and the service was quick.; a bit too quick, as we seemed to get everytthing at once.

“Great Restaurant !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2009

I just tried this place after being away for quite a while and found a much nicer, newly renovated restaurant. Along with the freindly service, great food and fantastic prices, this is a fantastic place to eat.
