“Excellent Chinese / Asian Buffet”
Review of Ruby Buffet

I rarely rate a Chinese buffet 5 stars. This place deserves it. It is located in South Philadelphia and is in a strip mall with ample parking (which is unusual). The buffet contains all the common fare, but also includes roast duck, ginger and scallion crab, and other items that you don't find on most buffets. The food was much better than average Asian buffets and was refilled quickly. The place was quite crowded, as you would expect. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. For about $13 per person for dinner, you can't beat it. This was one of the best of its type I have ever been to.

I tend to shy away from buffets as it tends to be a smorgasboard of bad food, but I overeat anyway. This was quality food that was well cooked and seasoned. There were seafood items available that were of reasonable quality that were good. The restaurant was clean and the environment was nice and inviting. Nice alternative to a pricey restaurant.

This is an Asian buffet but they have pizza, French fries, corn on the cob, fried chicken, and more. The restaurant is a really busy place and it's that way every time we're here. There may be Asian buffets with more varieties of chicken and more varieties of shrimp, but this is a reliable place in South Philly near Washington Ave & Columbus Blvd. The servers are very quick to clear away empty dishes. They keep it going. The food tastes great! It's a clean place you'll be happy to visit, just like all those people in there the other evening.

We were visiting family in Philadelphia Thanksgiving weekend. For Thanksgiving dinner we wasted $$$$ by going to the Valley Green Inn, when we should have gone to "Ruby Buffet". Luckily we went to Ruby Buffet for dinner on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised. First off it was very clean, employees very friendly, food selection was great, quality of food was excellent. And then the price is incredibly reasonable. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. And they have a nice parking lot for FREE which drove me crazy in Philadelphia having to feed the parking kiosk $6 every 2 hours. Ruby Buffet is #1.
