Tina the owner makes certain that the food served in her restaurant is the best tasting and of the highest quality. I really enjoy the vegetarian dishes that they make to order. Lots of fresh veggies and spiced just right.

When you're looking for predictable, American style Chinese food, then China Ruby is a great choice. I often opt for the Almond Boneless Chicken, which is fresh and delicious. I wouldn't say it will take your breath away, but the food is consistent and decent for the price. The major problem with China Ruby is the lack of parking. Ownership... More

Tina always greets me and even though the place is small, there is usually seating available. Take out also available. Food is consistently good and very reasonable. Worth the trip.

I used to go here all the time. The service was fast and the food was good. Very small restaurant, perhaps 7 or 8 tables. The last time I was here the service was horrible for that small of an establishment. We were basically ignored and had to get up several times to find our waitress. The food was just... More

Everything I've ever had here was outstanding! My personal favorite is the Szechuan Chicken. The lunch or dinner menu are both very reasonably priced. Try the dumpling soup too.

I've been eating here for 10 years now and I live in California! Every time I go visit Detroit my two boys and I make it a must to come have the delicious wonton soup. My kids love how simple the ingredients are. However you must order the pork pan fried dumplings, it's those yummy guys that keep us commuting... More

Go to this restaurant for delicious Asian cuisine! I always go for Cashew Tofu or Curry Tofu....Whatever you choose will be fresh and delicious and don't forget the fortune cookies! The owner and all the staff are very friendly and courteous!

You’re hungry, perhaps on a date, and don’t have loads of money to spend on a meal. My best recommendation is visiting China Ruby, a Chinese restaurant in downtown Ferndale. In a storefront that once housed an American-style diner, China Ruby is noted for its delicious and inexpensive Szechuan, Hunan and Cantonese cuisine. For starters, try the tangy hot-and-sour soup...

There's a reason why this restaurant wins a handful of the local media awards for their food. While pretty short on atmosphere, they still sling some of the best round eye Chinese food around. Don't expect other Chinese people to come here for authenticity because it isn't that sort of place; it's strictly Americanized Chinese food. Don't expect dim sum.... More

The food here is always good, nice selection, lightning fast friendly service, and inexpensive. Maybe not the candlelight and tablecloth biz --it is extremely informal -- but for a nice tasty sit down meal or carryout it can't be beat --easily one of the best Chinese places around
