Rui's is tucked away down Lugonia right past the DMV in Redlands, across from the Circa 2020 apartments. From the outside it looks a little dead, as we pulled in we weren't sure if we wanted to stay and eat, but THANK THE LAWD WE DID!!! Great atmosphere, wonderful service, AMAZING FOOD! Atmosphere: The location definitely is tucked away, however there is parking available and the decor is what you would come to expect at a small young restaurant. They had Christmas decorations up and I thought it  was a nice touch to see them care about keeping up with the holiday spirit.  The music was pretty good there were some times I just wanted to jump up and start fist pumping, which to add to the service the servers noticed and quickly changed music to be more fitting for eating, yet still young and modern.  They have a couple TVs unfortunately the Christmas decorations blocked some of the viewing. Service: Service was top notch, the young lady was very quick and efficient and never showed one table more love than the other.  She was very informative and always checked to make sure we were happy! She took time to break down the food, what was in it, and how the prepare it. For those pasty friends out there...YES SHE SPOKE PERFECT ENGLISH! FOOD!!! Egg Drop Soup...This was not typical egg drop soup. It came out piping hot as it should, and first you notice it's a little more yellow than usual.  It smells sweet. You take your first bite and there is CORN inside! It was such a good surprise!! Spicy Wontons...These were the perfect level of spicy! The bean sprouts were cooked perfectly and had the just right amount of CRUNCH! The oil/sauce it was in was so good I tried dipping every other dish in it. Simply amazing! Garlic Green Beans...Now green beans are always tough to get right, soft enough so they aren't too hard, crunchy enough so it doesn't taste like mush...these green beans were perfect. Not overpowered by garlic and seasoned very well. Didn't feel like too much oil was used. Steamed Pork Dumplings...FRESH JUICY PLUMP DUMPLINGS!!! To be put simply you can eat an order to yourself no problem...these little dumplings had you thinking that you'd never go anywhere else to try them.  So fresh, so good!!! DRY FRIED PORK RIBS! Now being from the Bay Area (Oakland) you are always skeptical about trying new ribs, cause to put it simply, Oakland has some of the best...BUT Redlands has taken over the number one spot. Now you only get 4 Ribs with the order, however they are MEATY JUICY AND HIGH QUALITY. The server told us that they don't make much money on the ribs but they really want to have good quality for the guests to enjoy! Rui's you're doing a great job!!! We are gonna become regulars!
SOUP DUMPLINGS MADE ME SO SAD!! Not what I was expecting, but everything else was great for a really good price (got the dinner special).
Stopped by for a quick lunch this Saturday. The place was small and busy but we were still seated quickly. My son and I ordered the pot stickers, pork dumplings, and the braised pork belly with egg. All three items were delicious! I highly recommend Rui's Shanghai Bistro for anyone that wants authentic Chinese cuisine. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because parking was limited.
