Friendly atmosphere, exceptional service, and the variety of flavors from the Far East are off the Charts. The decor is very inviting. There is always something better every time I go. They really listen and understand how to make spicy food.

I've returned here about 3 times. Very consistently good food, interesting choices, well presented, with good service. Not cheap, but worth the cost. Everyone enjoyed the food and the warm open ambiance. I continue to recommend Rangoon Ruby.
