We loved this restaurant. This was are first time here, we've been wanting to come here for a long
time. So we decide to try it on Valentine's Day. The ambience was nice as well as the service. we ended up choosing the special menu for that day. The food was delicious. We will definitely be returning to this place. There is so much more on the menu that we have to try.
Thanks for making our dining experience a good one.
We shall return.

This is our 8th visit to Rangoon Ruby's in the past 6 months. Obviously, we think this restaurant is awesome! The food is fantastic. So far, no matter which dish we try, it is excellent. The service is also outstanding.

Tea Leaf Salad is always super and I always get it every time I go there even if I'm by myself. The Samosa Soup was another big hit with my friends who are vegetarians. It's a very hearty soup and great on a cold, wet day.

We had the mango chicken, one of the beef dishes, pork and pumpkin stew, garlic noodles and coconut rice. The rice was great and noodles were yummy (though definitely garlicky). The mango chicken was sweet but not overwhelmingly. The pork and pumpkin stew was good but not the best of the versions I've had at Burmese. Beef was really good. I also LOVE the palatas here from the appetizer menu- I order it to go for lunch!

This was a repeat and we always enjoy. As this was New Years Eve it was a bit busy. We wanted soup to come first but it arrived with the other. Items. Food was not hot. We will come again as we know they can do better. When we complained about the food not being hot, the complimentary us with two ice cream desserts.

I am sorry to say, Rangoon Ruby has lost its way. We used to be frequent diners, but this may be the last time we will visit. The Tea leaf salad has lost its punch. It used to have so much flavor and now it is ho-hum. The pulata sauce has become incredibly runny and the chicken was filled with bones and cartilage. The sesame beef was chewy and frankly inedible. Must be using very poor quality meats for their food.
Such a shame as we have loved it for several years.

Excellent as always! We enjoy coming to the San Carlos Rangoon Ruby. The food and service are always excellent. We have introduced this restaurant to many friends.
We love the samosa salad, the basil chillie swai ( fish), the eggplant and many other dishes. A chilled beer goes well with the food.

An excellent choice for a standout lunch or dinner. Really tasty and creative Burmese food served very quickly and spiced to your comfort level. In our case, we had one diner who wanted mild spiciness and another that preferred a spicier dish. Each dish was prepared to the appropriate level. Service was so fast that the drinks we had just ordered arrived before we could finish ordering the main meal! (Benefits of electronic ordering...) Very happy with this find - good food in a creative, upscale environment, served rapidly and at a reasonable price. What more can you ask for? We will be back with friends.

The food was delicious! We ordered the samosas, Pad Thai, and string beans. They have a Burmese Iced Tea, which is similar (not identical) to a Thai Iced Tea and less sweet. Relatively quick meal, which is good when you're having lunch during business hours.

Their tea-leaf salad is a must, as is their eggplant (in almost any form, but the curry is excellent). The management at this establishment is particularly good - they often do glass pours of wine not on the winelist, and will give you a sample! If you have non-drinkers, the whole coconut can't be beat. The noise level inside is high, but, in good weather, you can sit on the sidewalk. The capability for opening the windows on all sides makes it pleasant in almost all weather.

For a Tuesday evening, this place was jumping - and, consequently, noisy. Be prepared for that. The service was outstanding: our waiter knew his business, with good advice, keeping us informed, holding dishes until we were ready, and giving us tastings of wines by the glass. ! The food is reliably good in this chain. The tea-leaf salad is a classic, dressed at your table, just right for 3-4 people. The calamari appetizer is a sure winner. Mango dishes are made with green mango, so be prepared for al-dente. We also liked the egg plant.

This is a popular place but you can still grab a last minute seat much of the time. Food is fresh, tasty, and surprising. Service is top notch! And if you happen to be in a rush the kitchen can be really fast to get your food on the table as needed.

The food seems well prepared (I say "seems" only because I don't know much about Burmese food), and is tasty and nicely presented. There's a lot to choose from, including many vegetarian options. My only complaint is that the servers are a little overly attentive, making suggestions without being asked, possibly trying to upsell a bit. I do like the place, though, and will return.

A far cry from the Burmese food I've had in Myanmar over the last 3 years. So I dinged it for that. Even for pseudoburmese food it was so so.... I suspect they were playing to the clientele, so understand, but was disappointed nonetheless.
