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.

You need to know where it is on Roswell Rd or you may pass it. We were seated right away with my reservation. The service were excellent, friendly, and helpful. They were very busy and yet they still did not rush you. They brought you bread, cheese and herbs to start with and let you look at the menu. The waiter suggested the lamb kabab and I absolutely loved it. The drinks and dessert were just as amazing. I would highly recommend the place for a great night out.

Great atmosphere. Portion size is worth the price. We had plenty of food leftover. I had the salmon which melted in my mouth and my husband got the chicken barg - just wow! Highly recommend!

They told me the patio was not available because of weather and asked if we would mind sitting near a window with "condensation". There was water dripping on us from the ceiling. They moved us to the patio which was full of people. Guess it was available after all. Very disappointed!

The lamb wasn’t good, my date wouldn’t even touch it. The drink pours were really stingy, like barely up to par if they were even measured. I was super unimpressed by the whole experience. The valet were the only ones there that actually did a good job. I used to love this restaurant.

I have been a fan of this restaurant for a long time, unfortunately this time the lamb shank which was one of their best items had no flavor at all, i couldn't even eat. People were very polite and professional as always.

The food was delicious and the service impeccable. The only downside was that valet parking was mandatory. During COVID we didn't want anyone in the car.

Rumi's is one of our family favorites for any occasion. The chicken barg and barg kebabs are always a crowd favorite. The servers and hostesses are thoughtful, friendly, and very helpful!

Although the food was outstanding; I could not bear the noise level. We went at 6:00 pm on Saturday and the music was cranked up too high. There were large groups of people with children adding to the noise level. I would recommend take out food and eat the yummy food in the quiet if your own home.

Food was overpriced. Two salads with salmon and chicken added were over $70. Not a good value when similar salads at other resultants would be under $20 each.

Very pleased with our server , he was great at everything he did. Very profesional , polite and fast The food was as always delicious even though my partner had a little issue with my clients meal but neither my client nor myself found any issue with the meal anyway. I apologize for any inconvenience he might have caused during this meal. I will say everything was beyond my expectations and the manager with his staff did such an amazing job.

Rumi’s never disappoints. It was quite noisy but it was also a Saturday night with several large parties - all the merrier. Service was great and the food was awesome.

I always enjoy eating at Rumi's. Great Old Fashions. Great appetizers including the shrimp, wings, humus and pita bread. I have never had an entre that I did not love. Service is excellent. They have valet parking and during peak times there is often a wait to get your car. I don't think self parking on site is an option. There is a parking deck nearby across the street. I take Uber to Rumi's which is very convenient.

Only issue was the noise level in the main room. Music and noise volume uncomfortably high.

It was a lovely experience: the service was great, the appetizers and dessert were amazing. The entree was ok, but I'm vegetarian, so I'm used to the vegetarian option being less than spectacular at meat-centric restaurants. Very expensive, but still good. Would go back.

Great place for a celebration! Our favorite was the lamb hummus, which they did not have on the menu, disappointing. The beef kabob was the best! Lamb shank was not so good. Chicken kabobs were average. Desserts were limited.

The quality of ingredients and outstanding service at Rumi's make it a place that I would like to go to multiple times. The waiting staff was incredibly friendly and constantly made sure our needs were met. The food did not take long to arrive and the hummus we enjoyed in the meantime was amazing. The spices and flavor offered in their food combined with the perfect cooking time served up a recipe for a tasty meal.
