Me and my partner as a party of 4 visited the Ruby last Saturday with friends, for their all you can eat buffet. We were seated by request in the corner on a spacious table for possibly a party of 6. We ordered drinks and started to look at the menu. There is a great deal of choice to choose... More

Been going here for over 20 years, always excellent food and fantastic service. I have been to many Chinese restaurants around the UK and nowhere else compares.

I came here with an open mind as a first time diner, I love Cantonese food so was looking forward to it. I'd heard good things so I wasn't worried even when the waiter was very sharp when trying to explain how the menu worked, as his English wasn't quite adequate enough to get his pout across. The food came... More

I really could not speak highly enough of this place. I've been before with family and always incredible but thought I'd give it a go with my partner. We thought it was a little much at 15.95 for the all you can eat deal but I ended up feeling like I should've paid more?! The food was cooked perfectly, prepared... More

I order from here quite a lot. Tonight I ordered the quarter duck but didn't receive the plum sauce with it which ruined it for me as the duck was fairly brittle and dry anyway. Also on the just eat app I usually request a can of Coke as there isn't an option for drinks on the app and I... More

I am not impressed that you have made a mistake here about Ruby Restaurant in Lichfield!!!!!!! we do not sell or deliver cans of coke that's why there is no option on just eat app! I am gathering you have ordered from Ruby takeaway in Burntwood who are not connected to Ruby in Lichfield More

Having been coming to this restaurant for many many years, the food is always superb. However on our last visit our bill arrived, didn't seem to add up right, so we called the waiter over to explain to us, why when we were there for the £12.95 buffet we were charged more and also an extra £6.00 for something else....

Like most Chinese restaurants have become. Food OK, nothing out of the ordinary and the same as every other Chinese restaurant all bought from the same supplier. Surprised we could get in on a Saturday night so we decided to stay even though it was all you can eat. We just dont really eat that much to make it worthwhile... More
