Food was excellent, service was not rushed and the staff were polite and pleasant. The menu was very varied with plenty of choice as was the drinks list. There was plenty of space between the tables but masks seemed to be lacking. They appeared to be busy with take aways which might explain the gaps between courses but this was not an issue for me.

My lamb jalfrezi was really tasty. Unfortunately my boyfriend ordered a lamb massala but received a chicken massala instead but it was still tasty

Utterly brilliant New year's Eve dinner... We went in for an early meal and ended up staying til midnight..
A brilliant Michael Jackson Tribute singer entertained and the owner dragged us out of the corner to get a better view
The food and service were perfect as ever, but the unexpected treat made this the best New Year Eve for years.
Thanks

Previous visit had been amazing so we were looking forward to returning. Sadly the service on this occasion was appalling.
We arrived at 6.30pm and did not receive our food until gone 8pm. I think around 8.15pm. Not a word of apology.
No smiles or warm greeting when we arrived either.
I understand they were busy but a simple warning or explanation to us would have been appreciated. Such a shame about the service as the food was great.
Not easy to wait that long with a child and two OAPS in our group!

Bad service, ridiculous loud, hot, unprofessional, food low quality.. blamed on being too busy.. that is not an excuse!! Don’t take as many customers if you cannot manage.. definitely won’t be back and will tell friends not to visit.. so many better places on Stortford!!

Food was very good, although quite expensive compared to other places in Bishops Stortford. Flickering light above our table wasn’t ideal either. Overall very solid.

Wow I just ate the best curry I’ve had in ages! It was a beef curry with a cashew nut gravy and spice, not your run of the mill flavors and a wonderful new experience. We both loved the king prawn puri starter and the service was excellent. HIGHLY RECOMMEND RUBYS

Great staff and a pleasant ambience when we ate here on a Tuesday evening. The tasty food is well cooked and presented . The specials look all worth trying our lamb and chicken dishes with the chilli sambar were fantastic. An enjoyable step up the scale from a local curry restaurant. Well worth a visit, looking forward to going back again soon
Thanks

Music was like sitting in a club lounge, not sure it was the atmosphere we were after as a couple. We're placed down a side area with very echoey walls and loud groups. Had to ask three times to take our order.

My family had a great meal, the food is delicious and we did enjoy it except when we've finished our food a bald waiter came to our table and speak to us very rude and unfriendly. All the waiters are very friendly and polite except. It's a shame, our experience is all perfect except that bald waiter.
This our the first time we are in the restaurant, usually we only had take away. I think we will stick to take away.

Absolutely disgraceful treatment at Ruby’s (unfriendly) Indian Restaurant. Went for my husbands birthday, had a Red Letter Days voucher. Got seated and I nicely told the rude stand off ish waiter that I had a voucher and he said we don’t take it. I said okay I spoke twice to someone once was Thursday here who told me you did and to bring my voucher with etc. The waiter in the restaurant said to me no you didn’t. Basically he is calling me a liar! Charming right!!! I even said I’m show him my phone records. How dare someone call me a liar. Utterly unacceptable and embarrassing in front of others. So we left. The mad thing is had he of just left it as I’m so sorry for the misunderstanding we actually would of stayed and paid for a meal. He didn’t give a damn that he had lost a customer and upset us. We drove 45 minutes to get there, hardly a local for us. But nope, didn’t care. Business is business right. Awful, awful experience.

Fantastic menu, never had a bad meal choice here. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Only drawback is you have to be patient. The desert menu is typically freezer based but if you have a starter you’ll be too stuffed to manage one anyway!

When there last night the 4 of us for a nice meal.
Really disappointed service was really bad , short staffed without a doubt and it wasn’t even full. Had to ask 3 times for a drink then they forgot again. Couldn’t even get anyone to take our money let alone the bill.
Noise level was unbelievable couldn’t hear each other across the table , or even the person next to me we were shouting at each other. My wife came out with headache very stressful and a waste of money on a Friday eve with friends . We won’t be going back and I will let all my friends know how bad it was.
Iam not a person to moan but this was terrible.
