This Ruby Foo's location may offer the same menu, but the atmosphere does not compare to uptown location. At peak times, the restaurant is overcrowded and tables are uncomfortably...

Great Food and Great Atmosphere 3/18/2012

This place is one of my favorites because I can get in and out fairly fast. It’s within walking distance of Broadway and if I tell them I’m running late, they get my food out to me right away. Their Asian cuisine has a unique twist and their chocolate cake is sinful. The prices are reasonable and the décor is absolutely stunning. more

Great! Worth every dollar 12/29/2009

I'm 18 years old and me and my friends always come here after spending the day shopping. The usual 5 of us share 2 or 3 dishes, they're huge! So the price is really great and we love the place itself. TS is a great place for tourists too, you can walk their from many places you may visit in NYC. Pros: Value, Great Service Cons: Not the best chinese more

Too cramped 9/11/2009

The food and decor are VERY NICE.. But do you want to sit on top of the people next to you while eating? The tables and chairs are WAY TOO CLOSE.. This is not a cafeteria right? Its very loud,, awful place really. Pros: good food Cons: too crowded more

Know before you go 3/18/2009

OK, this is not as bad as some make it out. The food is fine. It's not great, but it is pleasing, not spit-it-out disgusting. Yes, there is better Chinese food to be had in many places. But, Ruby Foo's is a neat restaurant to patronize. We've found the waitstaff to be attentive, even if they are rushing around handling all those customers. We much prefer the uptown location to the TS location, as it doesn't seem to have quite the breakneck, frenetic feel to it, and you don't sit inches from other diners. Still, there are lots of really terrible places to eat in and near TS, and you can still have a good pre-theater meal and a good time at Ruby's. Pros: Nice place, decent food, Times Square Cons: that crowded, busy, rushed feeling more

Worst place ever 9/4/2008

I went to the TS location for lunch on 9/4/08. Let me start by saying that I tend to avoid writing reviews. Imagine how horrible my experience was that I actually felt compelled to take the time to write this? \r \r We shared a bunch of food: Chicken pad thai, chicken lettuce wrap, and some rolls. \r 1) Food quality: The noodles and wrap were so salty that we had to ask for extra rice / noodles. The rolls were forgettable. It makes you wonder what kind of palate the chef has, if any???\r 2) Service: Server was completely aloof, no follow up, couldn't even get the right food to the right table, and just to impress us that much more, didn't even pack up the right food; \r 3) Price: So undeserving.\r \r I've not had this problem at the uptown location. However, this is the 2nd time at the TS location, and both times were terrible. Oh right - at least the first time, the waitress brought me what i ordered. I guess I should be grateful for at least that....\r I gave the first time some latitude. Thought perhaps an off day in the kitchen. Now I know that this place has just sunk to sub-standard levels. Save your hard earned funds and go elsewhere. And if you're a tourist, please - don't believe the tour books and all that hype. We don't want u to be jaded by this. Pros: Nothing Cons: Everything more

INCREDIBLE FOOD, AMAZING VARIETY!!!! 8/9/2008

This is an amazing restaurant...don't look at all the bad things the others are writing. The food is very fresh and tasty...much better than Chinatown!!! but make sure you make reservations. I go to eat here every weekend. Pros: delicious food, a lot of variety, amazing atmosphere more

No good anymore! 6/4/2008

Not what they use to be! This was great years ago.But now the quality is sub par and the taste lacks that of oriental. more

Worst Chinese food--but the most expensive in town 1/20/2008

This is by far the worst Chinese food or Dim Sum I have ever had and yet the most expensive I have ever paid. Service was okay, but food was not good at all. Mostly are very Americanize Chinese dishes. When the menu is English only, you know you need to go else where for real Chinese food. I won't recommend anyone to this restaurant. My husband didn't like the food either. There you have it--neither a Chinese nor an American like the food--think twice. Pros: good location--Time Square Cons: Bad food, pricy. more

real epicureans wouldn't come here. 8/19/2007

Surely for tourists and people who don't know authentic Chinese food. An expert can tell just from the menu. If you are in a hurry and must step inside, no problem. But if you are looking for something better than fast food served in a seeminly elegant room, go somewhere else. more

Great Place to Take Out-Of-Towners 8/14/2007

The staff is awesome - sometimes you even get an aspiring actress who inadvertently provides your table with a great couple hours of entertainment\r \r The ambiance is chic and eclectic\r \r The food is great - and there is so much to choose from; no one will go displeased\r \r It can be pricey - with drinks and apps - but it's worth it. Pros: Food, Staff, Ambiance Cons: Can be pricey more

The biggest tourist trap to arrive in NYC since THE HARD ROCK CAFE 4/15/2007

This place is so ridiculous. I cannot believe that anyone other than a dumb hokey tourist would eat in this lame theme park -type joint. The prices are obscene and the food is really quite lousy. One is better off taking a trip down to Chinatown. Its not any dirtier than Times Square or anywhere else in Manhattan.\r Our notorious rodent population is not discriminating on what part of the city they like to dine !\r Save your hard earned cash and venture out to the other boroughs for good NY Chinese fare if you can find it.\r This place is a big rip-off and it's really fast-food Chinese in a dark atmosphere with faux-Chinese decor. If you like to be fooled and ripped off this is the place for you ! Cons: MANY more

Fusion of flavors 3/11/2007

The restaurant was great. The food was a modernized asian and the aura was fabulous. The service was at a good pace. You can watch the chefs doing creative food art that can't be found in other places. The dessert bento is a must have. The food is best if you order a lot of dishes and share. The flavors are great and the appetizers were fabulous. You should plan to make reservations. It is a fun restaurant, even if there are a lot of tourists. Also the bathrooms are clean. Pros: Ambience, great flavors Cons: Can get expensive more

Disgusting ""dim sum"" 1/25/2007

This food is geared towards tourists, who do not know what Asian foods truly tastes like. Of course I am not a tourist & being that I've eaten at many Chinatown restaurants before, this place was a poor excuse for Asian dining. The dim sum was overpriced & bland. I have never had such disgusting dumplings before. The entrees were edible. I would never eat here again! Pros: The place is nice, that's about it Cons: Food was not good at all more

Busy - but great service! 12/19/2006

I went to Ruby Foos last week and had a lovely expeience. The hostess Lea (mentioned in the previous comment ) was very kind to me. I didn't have reservations on a very busy Saturday night and we still managed to only wait a half hour! (What more can you ask for from a restaurant in the heart of Times Square before theatre?!?) My friend and I enjoyed our delicious meal (try the filet stir fry) and loved our very funny waiter, Gorie! Next time I will know to make reservations! Pros: Great service all around, cute bartenders & excellent food Cons: Very loud music more

Great food, great place, Horrible hostess 12/4/2006

I came here the other night with relatives visiting from London. While the food was great and the service was excellent, not to mention the atmosphere. The hostess at the front, Lee/Lea was very rude. Upon arrival when she had asked me and my guests if we wanted to hang our coats in coat check, I turned to my family to see what they wanted to do only to turn right back around and have her repeat the same question to me but very slowly as if i was too dumb to understand her the first time. Maybe she was having a bad day but it did not give me a great first impression of the restaraunt staff. Luckily, the rest of the staff made up for her behavior. more

MAKE RESERVATIONS 11/21/2006

This place is amazing!! The decor and ambience is incredible. RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST!! The food was great. A bit pricey, but worth every penny! Pros: Food, Decor Cons: Prices more

Jumped the Shark 11/20/2006

This is one of those place just just became too popular. At one point it was a lot of fun and food was decent. Last time I went I didn't really enjoy the food all that much and the waiting was terrible. more
