Ruby's is now SABAI.
Ruby Asian Dining was closed down a couple months ago and has now re-opened as Sabai. I went there tonight (1/26/11) and spoke with the lady running the front of the house. She said Sabai had the same owners as Ruby, but new management (don't know if that includes chef, but I would assume).
They have the same phone number, 206-324-1111, and same location at 200 Lake Washington Blvd in Leschi. She said they were still working on the website. We got take out Green Curry, Masaman Curry and their Sabai Fried Rice. All three were excellent and spicy. The curries were especially good, creamy and rich.
We were bummed to see Ruby closed, as that was our go-to Thai take-out place, but we are very happy to hear that it's just a change - and the food is great.
Also, It used to be Ruby ASIAN Dining, and now it seems it's more Thai specific instead of pan-Asian. The sign for the restaurant says "Sabai - Thai inspired cuisine."
Excellent new menu, great cocktails!.
Located right on Leschi, near the Daniel's Broiler (a little hard to find), Ruby Asian dining has a great menu, new asian-fusion cocktails and a great location. excellent experience overall
True, you can hit this place on a good night and have a decent Thai meal. Although, more often than not this place is pretty well below par. I live a block away and have eaten here (Phad See Ew) about 10 or 15 times. About 85% of the time its definitely passable, but not much else. Maybe other dishes are better? Other friends have eaten a variety of their dishes with the same lackluster response. Great location. Too bad it's no Kwanjai.
