We have ordered delivery from Ruyi 5 times. The first time was ok and we were simply excited to find a place that delivers to our town. But each time it gets worse and worse. Tonight is the last night I will ever order from them. Problems? 1) they told me 40 min and it was 1 hour and 20... More

Well, we were a large group and took our time to place our order ... still we expected some attention from the wait stuff like bringing water or refilling glasses without having to ask several times. We were the only guests and I wonder how this places works when all tables are taken. Orders got mixed up. Lots of confusion.... More

Upon walking in you will notice the awful odor and decor. There is a stuffed cat at the hostess stand... Bad call! The ceiling and window treatments are extremely nasty. Water stains all over and ceiling tiles falling apart. The service and presentation is nice. Food is pretty average. Bottom line, this place needs an upgrade.

You will likely be seated immediately, but be prepared for exceptionally slow service. The restaurant seems chronically understaffed, particularly the grille. The "cooking at the table" is spectacular with charming, skilled chefs...but the food is pretty average. The seating at the grilles is not conducive to talking, and the focus of the meal is the art of the chef in... More

Had a dinner there - a company event. Worked out pretty well overall. We had a hibachi dinner. My salmon was good, fried rice and other stuff that came with it was okay. The appetizer, a few sashimi pieces, was very good. Miso soup was average. Reasonably good service, decent beer/wine selection. Okay decor. This place won't blow you away,... More

We went to Ruyi in Lexington MA on Sat Oct 24th for dinner with the family. We sat on the Hibachi grill side of the restaurant, and the four members of our family were seated with three other very nice people. STAFF: WONDERFUL! Our waitress was on her very first day with us, and she was very friendly, very attentive,... More

Ruyi restaurant serves perhaps some of the most tastiest dishes in all of Lexington. The menu is a good size, so there's plenty to choose from and in my experience has always been well worth trying something new each time I visit. Try it, you'll like it!

Right in historic Lexington center is a delicious Chinese restaurant called Ruyi. I love their soups and their crispy sweet and salty shrimp. Delicious! Very convenient for those touring Lexington.

The show and the cooking station are very entertaining. They also have sushi and a full entrée serving.

We have ordered food to be delivered multiple times, and the delivery time keeps getting longer - more than an hour and twenty minutes last time (and we live under 10 minutes away). Plus in 2 out of 3 orders they forget part of our order. Each time I say never again, and this time I really mean it.
