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!

Reviewed July 31, 2014

It's 100x better than going to Applebee's or Olive Garden! The ambiance is great and the food is fine. It is a solid "good" dinner, nothing to blow your mind. I think it is the perfect "first night in NY" place to dine because you feel like you're having a dining occasion. The staff is terrific, very friendly and genuinely happy you're in NY.

“just ok”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Beautiful restaurant in a great location, but food was average. Service was very slow, portions were small for the price. Kids ate sushi and said it was ok.

“Wow! Great place!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

The food was wonderful - interesting takes on dishes that are familiar. Ruby Foo's takes everything up a notch.....or three! Not going to get the name a the right (Irish something) -- I have no words!

Ruby Foo's was the perfect shelter on a rainy NYC night. The decor is grand, the waitstaff fantastic, and the food was delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant.
