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.

Always a fun time at Rumi’s Kitchen! It was our guest’s first time eating at Rumi’s, and they thoroughly enjoyed it! Our waitress, Nicole, was outstanding—-very knowledgeable of the menu and helpful. Our only complaint is the high noise level. We will definitely be back, in spite of the noise!

Food is always great. Waited 40 minutes past reservation time to be seated. Put a damper on the whole evening

We very much enjoyed the very interesting flavors and spice combinations. The lamb was some of the best that we have ever had. Service was efficient and attentive. We regret that we were not able to sample more dishes. We will obviously need to return.

I love Rumis and have been a loyal customer since it opened. While the food was delicious Saturday I left disappointed in the service. As soon as the appetizer arrived I felt we were on the clock and rushed to finish, order dessert and pay. I understand we had an early reservation on a Saturday night and our table was needed but for an expensive meal I don’t want to feel pressured to leave. It won’t stop me from going back but probably not on a Saturday night for awhile.

It was our first time here, and not very familiar with the menu. Our waitress was really patient and helped us make excellent choices. The food was excellent. They had a roasted cauliflower side dish that was phenomenal (a special item). I'd go back just for that!

Rumi's always delivers. My wife and I visit the restaurant once a month and the food is great.
It can be noisy at times and reservations are recommended.
Favorite dishes include Labane, Carrots, Dolmeh and the kebbabs (although note that the portions of main dishes tend to be on the large size).
A good deal for price is a couple of appetizers each and forgo the main dishes (or split the main).

The food is delicious and the service was very good. However, the restaurant is TOO NOISY. There were 4 people at our table which is small. Could only hear the person sitting to my left. Hard to carry on a conversation with the people across the table from me. We will go back to Rumi's if people we are socializing with want to go there. We would not recommend going there.

Food is always amazing! And in plentiful supply. Love that they now offer to bring it out family style.

Service was slow this time - maybe someone called in sick.

I was so looking forward to going to this RESTURANT. After many people spoke about how good the Avalon location was and said sandy springs was even better. First I had a 7:15 reservation. I wasn’t seated till 7:50. Not acceptable. We had a dis interested server whom showed on his face he’d rather not be there. Upon ordering the shrimp appetizer which was grossly over cooked similar to eating jerky. We ordered the salmon and fillet no gin with vegetables. The vegetable were the best part and really all we could eat the rest was so over cooked it was not only hard to cut but impassible to eat. This is why most was boxed up to take home. Upon coming g home I promptly threw out the meals .
If you’re going to charge 150$ for an evening out, be sure to have a happy server and food that is edible. I am out to eat around the US about 90 times a year. This was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had !

Rumi's continues to deliver on high quality and delicious food, excellent service and in a lovely setting. Now, if they can just streamline the valet parking it would be the perfect experience.
