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!

“cold thai food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Typical tourist ripoff. Small cold portions, rushed service, unfriendly waiter. Do not waste your time or money

“Quality food, but not Times Square prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

I have been to Ruby Foo's many times over the years but haven't gone in awhile because there are so many great restaurants in NYC. So we decided to go back the other night and it did not disappoint. The quality tuna they get for their seared ahi appetizer is top notch. We ordered a sushi roll as an appetizer and it was so good and fresh, we ordered a second. Then we shared an entree. Prices are comparable to other restaurants in NY. The menu is set up for sharing plates so you can try a couple things. Next time I won't stay away so long.

The service was prompt and the food was delicious. Drinks were a little weak but tasty. We come here a lot and it's always good! Gorgeous decor.

“Great spot for dinner before a show!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We loved the atmosphere of this fun Asian fusion/dim sum restaurant. We had excellent service and cocktails, great food, and the kids got to take cookies and popcorn away to the theater in lieu of dessert.
