Burma Ruby Ratings and Reviews
Good food but horrible hostess when we checked in. Sat us at a table that kept moving because it was uneven. We asked to be seated to a different tabke but were told by her that they have stooped seating at all the empty tables. So many empty tables and she said they had stopped seating on those tables. The whole time we were stuck at the table that kept moving back and forth. Made the whole experience bad for us. Horrible horrible server names Shayan made our experience bad.
This place is one of your favorite go-to places for special occasions. We love the food & ambiance. The service is good, though they took a while this time to bring water to our table or get the order for appetizers. But once the order was placed, the service was pretty fast.
We've been here multiple times and never disappointed. I had Burmese Pork Curry and my wife had Chicken Kebob. Both were excellent. We shared a Burmese-Indian rice side dish which is great alone but even better with the curry gravy. We had a 6:30 reservation on a Monday and the restaurant was 25% full. By 7 pm, it was packed. Burma Ruby seems to be a guaranteed excellent meal, service included ;)
Had a lovely dinner as usual at Burma Ruby on Tuesday evening. It was a warm day, so requested a table outside. Have a few recommendations for the restaurant based on our latest visit:
1) Is there anything you can do to regulate the "wobbly" tables outside? They are already very small, so it was difficult to make sure our cocktails didn't topple off the table every time we tried to cut some food on our plates and subsequently had the entire table wobble back and forth. Perhaps you could check to see that each table is "stable" each time you seat a new group?
2) Each of us were only given 2 forks wrapped in each napkin and no knife as our silverware. We asked for knives and this wasn't a problem...just wish the silverware would have been set up as it normally is without us having to follow up with our server.
Thanks for the great food and appreciate your consideration of the above feedback.
I picked this restaurant to try Burmese cuisine for the first time. It tastes more like Chines food than Indian food.
I requested an outdoor table upon arrival, and was granted immediately. I can look at the fancy Apple Store next door while waiting for my food.
My complaint is that there are two restaurants a few blocks from each other serving the exactly same menu. The other one is called "Rangoon Ruby" and I almost went to the wrong location.
Fourth or fifth visit. Excellent experience. I had Burmese Pork Curry (chose hot, but not extra hot). It was super. I had Indian Burmese rice as a side dish and finished the rice, an unusual outcome on my part. I would go back tomorrow. The online reviews basically recommended all dishes so choosing is a challenge. Can't lose though.
Food and Service is generally very good. I always get the Mango Chicken which is really tasty. I am somehow disappointed by their not so generous wine servings. From my experience, a glass of wine at Burma Ruby has less wine than at most other restaurants I usually go to. This is especially frustrating if you pay $15 for one glass.
