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.

I was visiting from California and the food here was amazing, living in the area surrounded by lots of iraninans and Persian restaurants, this restaurant surpasses the restaurants in Los Angeles and San Jose area by far, food service and ambiance.
Ex:
I asked a waiter passing by to get our waitress for some onion and bread, he said no worries I can get that for you. I was impressed with the unity in among the service.

Great date night. Amazing service. A bit crowded where we sat. But overall, we’d come back. Sea bass and Shish Kabob were delish.

Rumi is my wife's favorite Persian restaurant. They have excellent selections of middle eastern food and you really would not be disappointed. Very high quality food and wonderful servers throughout the restaurant. There are many different kinds of Kabob: Seabass, Lamb, Beef and Salmon. Very good portion and cooked executed. Our favorite is the Lamb Rack, perfectly cooked, juicy and charred. You would not be disappointed.

Another great meal at Rumi’s . They continue to serve excellent fresh food that is delicious. Loved the lamb hummus appetizer. The chicken and filet kebob were fabulous. Can’t wait to return when in town. Glad to see one opening on Peachtree

We came for my bday dinner. Food was delicious as always. The service on the other hand was subpar. Not to my Rumi’s standards. Our waitress was not attentive at all. We felt extremely rushed. For example we were still eating our food and the waitress came and wanted to start boxing our plates up. As she took the plates (rushingly) she dropped my food on the floor. I’ve came to Rumi’s many times and always an excellent all around experience.

Food 🤤

Atmosphere 😀

Service 😢

Our waiter Artie was phenomenal; without being asked or prompted in any way he helped carve the lamb Kebob for a guest in our party who is recovering from shoulder surgery. Was the guest’s 2nd dinner at Rumi; he wanted to introduce his son to restaurant. Top notch experience.

One of the challenges of ethnic restaurants in the United States is often service ,design,mixology,and appropriate wine program.Rumi’s accomplishes all the above at the highest level.At lunch they were full in 15 minutes of doors opening.What we got was incredible food and service .Our ticket time was perfect with both courses timed in an Awsome way.I have been a great fan here and as a restaurant owner who has done all facets of this tough industry salute Rumi at the highest level.Well done all around.

Unfortunately we went there to celebrate
Birthday but even booking the table within 7 days in advance we had to wait beyond the expected time.
The hostes ( the asian lady) just laugh on my face when I complained about the extra time to wait.
She had lot of attitude and she believed was making a big favor for costumers answering our frustrations.
The manager came to talk to us and we all calmed down.
