From when I started planning my birthday party to when it was held, I was constantly in touch with the manager, who was extremely helpful. On the night, the... More

We had a quick pre-theatre dinner. Five shared platters between two. Great range and imaginative food preparation. Next time we are giving ourselves more time to enjoy this place.

We went there three friends for our last dinner in Sydney. We shared six dishes and one desert and shared everything. The place recommends the table sharing dishes witch is fun. Six plates for the three of us was a good amount. This was our first time trying a kangaroo and we quite liked it. The lamb was spectacular but... More

Having read previous reviews on Tripadviser we were looking forward to a good dinner and we weren't disappointed. The waiter suggested for 6 people it would be better to order a banquet menu. We had the Seasonal menu which was excellent. The servings were plentiful and we were all 'slowing up' towards the end. The service was not rushed but... More

The staff was very careful and kind, pouring water everytime you needed. Portions are large so you can share them between two people. We ordered snacks (mixed olives and herbed garlic bread), a...

We have dined many times over the years at Rubyos and always loved the scrumptious food on offer. Tonight we revisited for the first time in a couple of years. It was every bit as good as I remember, and one of the best meals I've had in a long time! Our daughter had the vegan banquet and the rest... More
