SurpriseI wasnt sure what to expect exactly from a Persian restaurant, but WOW this was great.
The Chicken BARQ is outstanding and the rice varieties are great.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeFood is simple yet delicious. Great service & atmosphere.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMRumi's RevivedAfter moving to a new location, Rumi's really stepped up the overall experience with an elegant and inviting dining room, creative and intriguing menu and attentive and friendly staff. Great food and atmosphere. Will return again and again.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, amazing beefWe had beef soltani, which is a strip of tenderloin and a strip of ground beef. The tenderloin, which I expected to be dry and tough (that has been my experience with kebab meats), was so tender and juicy I could not believe it. Cut with the side of your fork. Seriously. And DELICIOUS! Serviced with lovely light fluffy fragrant rice.
Also had the Rumi's Orange Spice cocktail, which is a delicious combination of bourbon, orange, anise and clove. I wanted another but the table decided on wine. I'll definitely be ordering that again!
We were worried about service based on some yelp reviews, but it turns out our fears were groundless. Our server was a smart, attentive young woman who took great care of us. Going back soon!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMKnowledgeable WaitersWe relied on the suggestions made by our waiter and we enjoyed every bit of his suggestion.

So I will highly recommend Rumi's Kitchen and can't wait to try it on my next trip to Atlanta.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Persian food in AtlantaRumi's is a great Persian restaurant. The kabobs are wonderful, as is the rice that comes with the. They recently moved to a much larger place, it's not as charming, but it's not as crowded either. The only downside is that you have to valet park. I don't like strangers in my car.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food & fun cocktails!If you like Persian food, Rumi's is excellent! And if you haven't tried it, this is a great place to check it out. The decor is great, comfortable yet chic. The bar menu has some unusual & delicious concoctions (loved the Tehran Mule). If you want a big meal you will not be disappointed, but they kindly split the Soltani for us which was more than enough to fill us. Some of the best chicken Barg I've ever had! Would definitely recommend!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest persian restaurant in town!Had a great time.

Not as easy to find and turn into off of busy Roswell Road on a Saturday night. Waiter was attentive, but not didn't understand our ordering requests very well. The food is fabulous. We had out of town guests who stated that when they return to Atlanta in the future, they're coming to Rumi's again.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter Marcus was on topOur waiter Marcus was on top of everything from proper color napkins, food and drink suggestions/commentary, timing and follow up. The bar was great: no surprises and all delicious. The food, both appetizers and entrees, nice variety, very flavorful, and attentively made. Not inexpensive but portions are large enough to leave some for lunch the next day. Parking can be a bit of a hassle but that's the only weakness this place has. Very nice place, well done, delightful people watching, and very good experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find, huge portions.Great find, huge portions. Amazing food and service. Next time I may partake of some of the great looking appetizers and share dinner.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the very best restaurantsOne of the very best restaurants in the city. The new location is spacious and beautifully appointed. The food is consistently delicious. The Kabobs are always our favorite with the wood fire grill flavors! One of the few places that will gladly bring you their complimentary appetizer. I've noticed that now you should ask for it where at the other location, it was served to you automatically and first thing.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI would recommend this placeI would recommend this place for sure. Great service!!!! Wonderful staff, friendly atmosphere.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable Dinner at Rumi'sWe had a Saturday nigh reservation. We were seated within 15 min of our reservation (the rest of our party was a little late). Restaurant was busy, but comfortable. A little loud initially, but quieted down toward 10pm. Service was good, just the right amount of attentiveness. Food was very good and large portions. All of us took part of our meal home. I would definitely return to Rumi's Kitchen!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the new locationwe come to Atlanta once a year for 2-3 days , we make sure we eat at Rumi's every night!!

Great Persian food.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect first visit!The space is beautiful, open, and light-filled, a total surprise from the unassuming Roswell Road location. A seasonal cocktail from the drinks menu was so delicious that I skipped wine with dinner in favor of a second peach martini. The lamb sliders to start were scrumptious, but we soon learned a starter was unnecessary as the dinner portions were insanely generous. The chicken was so tender and tasty. My husband had the sea bass, also savory and memorable. This was our first visit and we will definitely return!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPersian Food & HospitalityBread & Chicken Breast entree were outstanding on this visit. So was the service. We were not rushed. The timing for serving the entree was perfect--gave us a chance to have some bread, cheese and olives. We were not rushed for the bill. Water was replenished continuously. Well done!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRumi's is a long time familyRumi's is a long time family favorite - the best of this cuisine in Atlanta!
