Not too much else to say. Just dropped $20 for lunch. Lotsa brown sauce. No free refills on soda. Not much else needs to be said.

China Ruby has been around forever and provides the old school Chinese food experience of my youth. It's not fine dining, but it doesn't pretend to be. Great for a quick reasonably priced take out meal.

Gourmet--it is not. But if you are looking for pu-pu platter type offerings, or gigantic plates of retro Chinese, this is the place for you. Be prepared for LOTS of brown food. In this context, it is tasty. But it is not light or particularly fresh tasting. But sometimes, you just need those Chinese ribs or shrimp with very dark... More

For those of us in the Metro-West area this is a pretty good standard fare Chinese restaurant. All the standards are served here and you will recognize the menu as soon as you open it. All of the food we tried was good - no complaints from anyone of us. Served hot, fast and ample portions. Priced like a family... More

This is not a gourmet reataurant...but the good is fresh, hot, and yummy. NOT greasy. Service was great. I love Chinese food like I remember growing up...a plate with fried rice, teriyaki chicken, and crab ragoon. My daughter and I got different assortments and both were great. Each plate was under $9. I will go back.

We go here frequently because the food is good and the drinks are also. They frequently have specials on food and drink which make it very cost effective. Service is good and the restaurant is clean inside. The staff is very accommodating to any special dietary requests. Easy to get to with lots of parking as it is located in... More
