Welcome to Rumi's Kitchen - Sandy Springs! The premier Sandy Springs location for Persian Cuisine. Owner and Head Chef Ali Mesghali’s unique and flavorful touch has been wowing patrons for over 20 years. His previous restaurant, Persepolis, was a Sandy Springs favorite.

Rumi’s Kitchen - Sandy Springs draws influence from the culinary mother of the Middle East, Persia, which spanned from the banks of the Nile River in the west to the mountains of Northern India in the east, and from the shores of the Caspian Sea in the north to the deserts of Arabia in the south of the Persian Gulf.

Chicken kabob with bone and safaran rice was so good. Rumi's yugort was very delicious. Vegi okra stew was delicious.

The best service , the best food and the best management in an energetic and lively atmosphere with the hottest looking servers in the ATL. The noise level is the only downside at this mainstay.

I will go to Rumi's for lunch, but not dinner anymore. They now overbook and the noise is intolerable. You can't have any kind of conversation at dinner in this restaurant.

Rumi’s Kitchen is always busy because the food there is exceptional! Even when they’re busy, the staff is pretty on top of things and you’ll get great service all the time. I highly recommend. The eggplant appetizer and humus are fantastic...highly recommend. I’ve had the salmon entree, lamb kabob, ground beef kabobs, etc and I can’t decide which I like better or best. Can’t go wrong here!

I never write reviews. I was mildly irritated that we had an 8:00 reservation and were still not seated at 8:20. Three times I was told the table was being cleaned. That being said, once we were seated I was thrilled. The service was outstanding. I’m on a plant based diet and once I told our server, Ricki, he did everything he could to accommodate. He had several tables but still serviced ours to the max. He went above and beyond for regular service. I drink a ton of water per day, so an empty water glass is my thing.. my glass was never empty. Something so small, yet so important. I’ll visit here again and again. I heard from a friend that they had equally excellent service from a different server, a woman. Obviously, that’s their mantra. We were a party of four and all agreed, the food was fantastic. THE best hummus I’ve had in a restaurant. Go, you won’t regret it!

The noise level in the main dining area is uncomfortable. You can't hear someone who is sitting right next to you. Our waiter was very, very busy. He mixed up our leftovers and I had to drive over to my friends house the next day to swap. The food is always EXCEPTIONAL ! That is why we go back. We also eat at the Rumi's at Avalon. They have a great outside patio.

Our anniversary dinner:
We enjoyed the food and The service was very good but the NOISE LEVEL was way over the top. Table next to us were yelling at each other to be heard...it was awful.
Love the food but I want to be able to comfortably converse and this experience was anything but that...very stressful.

Rumi's is our favorite restaurant and always is a hit whether you go as a couple or with a larger group. The food and service are top notch -- make a reservation for sure! My wife prefers the lamb dishes, and I usually go with the beef. Either way, you'll end up with a great choice. By the way, the portions are huge so be ready to take your leftovers home to eat the next day.

Rumi's provides an outstanding dining experience. The service is excellent (both table side and at the bar), the food is flavorful and delicious and the drinks are awesome. It is a bit loud but that is to be expected - it's busy in there because it's so good! Will absolutely be back and will bring people too!

The food was quite good and the restaurant quite beautiful. Our server forgot we'd ordered our entrees, brought wine long after the appetizers, could not answer questions about the food or wine and just seemed to be a nice guy but totally unprepared for the job. I'm willing to give it another try, but would explicitly ask for an experienced wait person.
