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!

“Good food but spicy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

My wife and my self book had a meal here in ruby foo's on our trip to New York,

The restaurant was nice but the music was a bit loud for us,

The food was fast from ordering to getting,
The food tasted nice but was a bit spicy ( as it says on the menu,) but it was just a little spicy for my likening,

I would return to ruby foo's in my next trip to New York.
I would recommend it to any one,
I would also recommend booking before going as they are always busy.

“Dinner after theatre.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

We had been to the theatre, and decided to Ruby Foo's for a quick bite before bed. I had not been her in years and always thought of this place only for tourist. I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed with the sushi and was not disappointed. The service was quick and friendly, but it was late. I would come back again.

“Good food, excellent location, slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

Enthousiastic about the location and menu choice. However had to wait almost 1 hour before my starter arrived. Waitress was very friendly but forgot my drink order not once, twice but three times . .
Food was very good, I would come back but avoid " rush hours "

“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

I ate here in October. It was lunchtime and I was on my own. The service and food were excellent - waiter was attentive without being over-bearing - also very knowledgeable about the menu including the wines. I highly recommend Ruby Foos and look forward to eating here when I am next visiting NYC.

“The Peking duck was pathetic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Went here for a birthday dinner... The Peking duck was a pathetic portion...lots of rice buns (?), but little meat, which was rather dry. Embarrassing for $ 24 and a complete ripoff, but then you are in Times Square. The coconut shrimp appetizer was good, but portion size was again tiny. I have no plans on returning, and I really wouldn't have gone here if I hadn't been invited. Definitely a tourist trap.
