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.

We had a wonderful dining experience on the patio. Kara was our server. She was very knowledgeable about the menu. Which helped a lot because we have a ton of allergies! She was pleasant and accommodating. Thanks for making our birthday celebrations wonderful!

After being out of the country for 8 days it’s was so nice to be spoiled at Rumi’s. Ro our server was exceptional. She was bubbly and informative and just delightful. She never let a unused plate stay on the table. The food was amazing. My 7 year old fell in love with the chicken kabob and rice. Everything was perfect.

Rumi's has very good food and drinks. The ambience is great if you're looking for a bar-like atmosphere; Rumi's does not have a fine-dining atmosphere. The music was not too loud, but, again, was what I would expect if I wanted to have dinner in a bar. The servers and diners were dressed for a bar (mostly jeans and polo shirts and sneakers).

Fantastic lunch started with falafel as an appetizer then moved on to Persian stew (favorite anytime food !) just wish they had Persian stew at all locations or sub in a fish stews instead of two beef stews. Server Sabrina was perfect! Friendly helpful attentive & so sweet!

As always, the food at Rumi’s Kitchen was outstanding. The staff is lovely and despite a delay with some drinks we ordered, the service was quite good. The only downside is that it is VERY loud in the restaurant. It’s nearly impossible to hear the servers or even each other and there were only 4 of us dining. I may choose a less busy night, if possible, but otherwise I would highly recommend!

I've been to Rumi's many times in the past, this time was somewhat disappointing. I arrived before the other person in my party and the hostess informed me I had to wait until the other guest arrived. There were barely any other tables seated in the restaurant and I stood at the hostess stand while the 3 hostesses talked about their hair. There was nowhere to sit so I stood next to the door, above me a pipe was dripping water on my head, not a great way to start. Luckily the other party arrived within a few minutes and we were seated. The food and service were ok, not as good as the many times I have been there in the past.

Rumi's is one of my favorite restaurants. My only beef last night is that we were seated in a back corner and the only thing I had to look at was a white curtain. Of course, the food is fabulous.

Very good food, but very, very noisy. Excellent service. We were seated promptly for our reservation and given extras for our special occasion. The portions are huge. Excellent wine list. The restaurant was very busy for a Saturday night, and the tables were pushed close together. It was extremely noisy, however, to the point of being uncomfortable. I would go back, but only outside of peak dining hours.

Our party was 8 for a birthday, we arrived as 4 and were told we couldn’t be seated without the majority of the party. When we gained 2 more we became a majority of 8 but still they refused to seat us. I advised them the other 2 were on the way and asked what became of the majority rule we were initially advised of. I was told( to my horror) well if the 2 don’t show then we’ve missed the opportunity to make money on 2 more folks! What are you kidding me did you actually say that?? The restaurant is always packed and you are worried about money from 2 people!!! I was and am so put off by this comment I may never return and this was by far not my first visit.

You are putting the almighty dollar of 2 folks over customer service, shame on you!!

Again this was a birthday party and the sister was on the way. She was never not going to show up! Plus the table they had for us was a big round one, we’re they going to 2 strangers with us if my other 2 guests were a no show? I mean come on!

I may have put enough resistance to this most absurd comment that they finally decided to seat the 6 of us. Perhaps 10 minutes afterwards our other 2 showed up.

The takeaway, for a large party make sure everyone arrives together or be ready to hang at the bar or stand packed outside and know that your money is more important than customer service.

Food quality was great! Service was very good. Quantity was not the best for the price you pay. I would only come back if invited but would not voluntarily want to go back on my own, if I’m paying the prices I paid I rather go to a Brazilian Steakhouse or something along those lines.

But overall great place.

Celebrated my 24th wedding anniversary. Suzanne was our waitress and she was amazing! She took time to show us great service and even prayed with us for God to continue to bless our marriage. That made us feel so special. And as always the food was exceptional!!
