In the mass of overpriced, underwhelming chain restaurants that Times Square has become, Ruby Foo's stands a little bit above the rest of the crowd. It's not some huge monstrosity, the service staff is attentive and it still seems like an intimate dining experience. The...More

3 of us shared apps and sushi -- chicken lettuce wraps, pork dumplings, ribs & "sushi to share" platter. Good serving sizes, tasty flavors, good service. Great for lunch before a show.

This is a place that my wife and I frequent while in NYC. I, too, go there solo while on busines for a quick lunch. Whether it is Japanese or Chinese fare, the service is consistent, and the food tastes excelent. The duck is great

We went to Ruby Foos before seeing Jersey Boys. Since the show started at 7pm, we went for an early dinner at 5:15. The timing was perfect as we had the attention of our waiter as the place was fairly empty. The food here is...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of

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!
