Thailand: Ruby of Siam [closed]

Ruby of Siam
170 W Washington St
Chicago, IL

This post is going to be brief, since we actually ate there a while ago, so the pictures will have to mostly speak for themselves. While the food itself was good, solid Thai (though nothing spectacular) the location is really what sets it apart. Perfect before catching the Metra, a movie or a jaunt at the AIC. We were impressed by the elegant decor and comfortable booths –  a big step up from many more spartan takeout places in the area. The early dinner crowd was somewhat thin, but we hear they have a good lunch buffet – also possibly of note – RoS is BYOB. If you’re not feeling like Potbelly or bar food Ruby of Siam was, quick, efficient and tasty Thai in the loop. However, for Thai food in the loop area Star of Siam is still our reigning favorite.
