    A Chinese chowhound from Newark, NJ tried it and liked it.

    Half-caf, triple shot, no-foam latte. What the heck does that mean? It’s not as complicated as it sounds once you know how to break it down. Most coffee drinks are some combination of espresso and ...read more

Worst lunch ever!

We just had our lunch in Ruby. It was the worst lunch we have ever had in Chinatown. When we looked at the menu, the prices seemed OK. So we ordered 4 dishes plus a few drinks. When the food came, we were all surprised at how small the portion was! We didn’t finish the food even though it was such small portion and we were hungry. The food was just not good at all! On top of that, when the check came, they charge us almost $100 for 4 small dishes and the drinks!!! They way overpriced the drinks (we should have asked the prices of the drinks because they were not the menu) and they added tips themselves to the bill. I would not mind paying that much for a good lunch, but the food was bad the the portion was small. We will NEVER go back there. DO NOT EAT THERE!

This place is fantastic. We came here twice,...

This place is fantastic. We came here twice, once for tea and bakery treats and once for a full-on dinner for six.

As one of the two vegetarians I can’t speak for the meat dishes, although everyone said they were good. We had ong choi (which is something like spinach with a bit more crunch and heft to it) and ma po tofu, both of which were great. The prices are low, especially for Hawaii – I think our entire meal for six, with appetizers, came in at under $70.

The proprietress was patient and genuinely kind with us – several people with us had never had authentic Chinese food before and were a little lost in the menu.

Strongly recommended! A break from the typical Hawaiian overpriced / touristy experience. If I lived in Honolulu, I’d eat here all the time.
