“Great food, imaginative menu and brilliant prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

The title says it all really...The imaginative menu was superbly produced, ok, it wasn't the quickest restaurant i've ever been to, but that's because it's all freshly cooked to order. To add to the brilliant food, it's also great value, especially the fixed menu, which (unlike most places) I actually thought was better than the A La Carte! I'd absolutely go again, to the extent that I'm intending to take my parents (and they know a lot about good food!)

“Excellent food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Having read the TA reviews on the Straits and not having been there since it was called Rubys we saw that it was getting better reviews than the much spoken about Dylan's. We booked for a party of six on a Saturday evening. Booked the only table left for 6pm and found the restaurant relatively quiet on arrival. Within about 30 minutes it quickly filled.
The decor and ambience was lovely. The staff were very welcoming. We were led to our table and we ordered drinks and were given just enough time to decide before ordering. Most of us opted for the fixed price menu with the optional supplement for the steaks. All three courses were excellent, very tasty, and ample portions without being over filling.
We accidentally spilt water into our bowl of garlic bread due to a slight step in the table and we informed the staff who promptly came with a fresh bowl full without any questions at all.
The ambiance was great with enough spaces between the tables to not have to overhear the conversations of others. The staff were mostly bilingual.
Will be returning here in the near future and in my opinion the restaurant is worthy of its rating on trip advisor.
