Description: Ruby Foo’s brings the bold flavors of Beijing, Bangkok and Tokyo to Times Square in a big-box setting that is as boisterous as it Broadway neighborhood. Described as “imaginative” by New York Magazine, the 300 seat space and approachable Pan-Asian cuisine is perfect for dinner pre or post show, lunch with clients, brunch with kids, private parties, and any other occasion imaginable. People watch at a Broadway-facing table over pad thai, sample some of the best rolls in the neighborhood at the 20-seat sushi bar, share assorted dim sum at a banquet and finish with a Dessert Bento Box. Tight on time? Take freshly-baked theater treats like Chocolate Chip Cookies and Caramel Popcorn to go. Or, get sushi and dim sum delivered to your door!

“Great pan-Asian experience”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is my third time dining at Ruby Foo's (1626 Broadway, New York, NY 10019) and have enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the service all three times. The sushi is outstanding and the staff is extremely friendly.

What can I say? I love the atmosphere of this restaurant. The décor is accented with dramatic lighting that includes lanterns, its high energy, the menu offers a collection of delicious dishes from every part of the Asian continent, and the music is great. The restaurant is located right in the middle of the theatre district and great for groups.

“Disappointing Evening”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Maybe we picked a bad night, but the place was not very busy, and the atmosphere seemed quite dull. I should have read the reviews and by mistake ordered the Peking Duck. Our server recommeded one of their special cocktails, and it wasn't on par with our other favorites. The server was quite pleasant, and the prices were not out of reach, but doubt we will be going again -- says my wife!

“Excellent Asian With Attentive Service”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We were visiting Times Square with two locals and they suggested Ruby Foo's. It was 2pm, so we were seated immediately. Reservations recommended at meal time. They have a complete menu from Dim Sum to regular Asian dishes. Everything we ordered was excellent and the service was very good also.

The decor was very comfortable.

“Great pre-Carolines!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We had a great experience at Ruby Foo's before attending Caroline's next door.
We had a wide range of different dishes and were happy with all of them...the spring rolls, the tempura, the sushi, everything was excellent. We will definitely return soon.
