The food here is truly delicious, the blue cheese burger is the best burger I have ever had, so juicy!! You can't book and it gets busy with people often queueing. Don't be put off, it's very much worth the wait!!

Yes there was a line when we arrived and we waited 25 minutes before being seated but it was well worth it! The Indonesian curry and the chicken with vegetables were excellent! Also the watermelon salad we had as a starter! We highly recommend it...More

Ordered the jalapeño poppers, pumpkin curry and beef rendang. Everything was really tasty, my only criticism is that the beef rendang had very little sauce and only 2 pieces of meat. Was good value and good food, recommend checking it out.

The food here is so tasty. Really well presented and there's not too many covers. They do have a sign to warn you though, don't expect food to be cooked quickly. We waited for 40 minutes for food to come and the restaurant was half...More

This is a lovely little restaurant tucked away from the main busy street. We ordered the meatballs and a burger which were both great but waited nearly an hour for it which wouldn't have been an issue if we wasn't so hungry. This didn't detract...More

First of all, I ordered a dish with vegetables, but it had coriander all over the plate. Coriander is a very strong herb so they should warn on the menu that the food you are about to order has this herb. The icing on the...More

Firstly I am so sorry about the stone you found, i have asked my staff to be extra diligent when washing it. With regards to the coriander, our curries have as much of a blend of 10 different herbs,no menu can list all of the...More

Tried this restaurant off trip advisor for lunch, was looking forward to try the beef rendang but unfortunately it wasn't on the lunch menu ( maybe a dinner thing only) So instead we ordered a watermelon salad which was amazing! Definitely recommend! We then ordered...More

Ruby's Cafe is owned and operated by Indonesian Chef Ruby. Her mission is to provide fresh homecooked with passion from experience from working overseas inspires her delicious curries using imported ingredients unique to her cafe and her time in top Italian restaurants in Bali comes through in her perfect pasta dishes. Every plate is cooked from scratch, spring rolls,croquettes, curries, only the Rendang is cooked before as it takes 2 hours, no portions pulled from the freezer and buzzed in Micro. Ruby's is a simple open air cafe dedicated to providing tasty FRESH food with love. Sorry even though many reviews advise booking we do not take reservations works better on a rolling basis, last oders 3.30 lunch and 9.30 dinner.
