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.

One of my favorite Atlanta restaurants! It was good to see them busy as these are uncertain times. I just love the interior design and fresh authentic food.

Rumi's has and retains its special flavor and variety of food that is and always has been fresh and of high quality. I brought two customers in from out of town and they were not really aware of good Mediterranean food. They were very pleased and said that they were pleasantly surprised about the newness of food variety and excellent taste/flavor.

Rumi's is a great place to have a celebration -whether it's just for two, or for a big crowd. The food is amazing and the fresh pita bread is irresistible. Just brace yourself for the noise level. People-watching is always fun here as well.

We had a fabulous time as always. Rumi’s never disappoints. Delicious food, impeccable service, fantastic ambiance...
A few in our group were first timers and were completely wowed. We were all in agreement that Rumi’s is one of Atlanta’s top restaurants.

The food was amazing! We ordered lamb kebab and salmon for the table and it was devoured within minutes. Salmon was moist and tender, lamb was prepared with warm pink center and juicy. Can't wait to go back!

As always, the food NEVER disappoints. Simply put, it is incredible and very reasonably priced. The only downside, and this never changes, is the noise level. It is very loud in there...always! I would never go there for a date night to connect with a significant other. If you’re with a group and can talk to the person sitting right next to you, you’re fine. Talking across the table is almost impossible. The food is so good that it’s worth it and the hubs and I just don’t choose it for a date night.

I always love Rumi's and it's a good to for a great meal! It does get loud so if it is an event that requires clear communication do lunch instead of dinner or rent the private room.

Excellent service from Tiger and food was very good. Only issue was screaming children throwing and breaking plates on the floor right next to us. Noisy but energetic dining was good except for flying sheds of broken plates.

Sometimes the test of a restaurant is in the returning back .....to experience what you remember as being good. And I do not get disappointed ever, in what I have for food or in the service and atmosphere of the restaurant. I come away from Rumi's feeling that I've just experienced good healthful food, with great flavors. I love that is a go-to restaurant that does let me down.

We love this restaurant. The parking is a bit of a hassle, simply because I don't like valet parking, but everything else is excellent. The food and service are at the top of the game. We love the hummus platter, all of the kebobs, and especially the Persian tea.

I have heard fantastic things about Rumi’s and was looking forward to eating there immensely. The ambience was great and the bar was lovely. The waitstaff was formerly and helpful and warm.
I was a little disappointed in the food. I was excited to try the Persian vegetable stew - but it was heavy on tomatoes and okra and light on lentils. I guess I just didn’t like it that much. Found it a little boring.
I tasted my companions chicken koonideh and while better than my veg stew, it was also underwhelming.
Next time I will try the lamb - I love lamb but am attempting to eat less meat so opted for the vegetarian choice. To my detriment.

I’ve been here many times, random days of the week, for lunch and dinner. Regardless of day or time, Rumi’s is generally a very noisy and well attended place - so heed my advice and always make reservations! Additionally, Rumi’s can be drafty so I suggest you bring a wrap if you’re inclined to get cold. Otherwise, you can find no better Persian meal in the metro!

Our food was delicious. It did take about 20 minutes to get our bar drinks once ordered which set everything back as far as timing. We were trying to get to an 8 pm show and with the craziness on a friday night getting our car from the valet....we were quite late.

The server was in a hurry and didn’t let us enjoy our time together the four of us She came straight (the server) to my partner and gave him the bill. Omg. She is supposed to wait till one of us request the Bill to pay. 2: why in the world the guy tall one apparently new has to ask me And my friend as well that Brought her car IF WE HAD ALREADY PAID for the parking ????? I have never had that happened before there. OBVIOUSLY when we gave the parking ticket we also gave them the cash for the parking. So why did the bother valet guy asked if we paid or we didn’t ??? That very low in my opinion. We are business people we always pay and tip them. Hopefully this doesn’t happen.again
