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.

Food was amazing as always. Drinks were so refreshing. Service was slow at times but completely understand given how short staffed everyone is right now. We will be back!

Great end-to-end experience. The restaurant is well run from valet parking to kitchen to service, even when very busy. Food is delicious, rich menu, and main courses are generous, hence also reasonably priced. Our go to restaurant for enjoying quality food with great service in a higher than casual dining setting.

The food was great as usual. I ordered the lamb kabobs and they were juicy and delicious! Normally I don’t order lamb places because I’m disappointed but this was delicious!

The noise level at the restaurant was very high. Restaurant was getting crowded over time. Could’ve controlled it better given the pandemic. Food was outstanding and was the service.

I made a reservation over a week ago and we could not have had a worse seat. They are packing that place so tight it’s a sea of bodies. I was so close to my neighbor I couldn’t get up to go to the bathroom. I could hear my neighbors conversation better than who I was there with. The waitress couldn’t even get to the table to take our orders. She had to stand behind us. It was absolutely ridiculous it was like they were trying to make up for lost time from covid by packing it double full. I was so disappointed this is my favorite restaurant. It gave me so much anxiety we had to take our food to go!

Food is amazing as usual. Our waiter was awesome! Only downside is the dirty glasses we were served in. The decanter was dusty like it was never used. Wasn’t wiped down or anything. Felt a little rushed with multiple people asking if we needed anything else so we rushed through our meal

We were thrilled to be able to get a dinner reservation on a Monday night and the day before. Yet when we got there on Monday for dinner, we still had to eat 15 min. Mad crazy on a Monday! But the place did not disappoint. Food was excellent, service was friendly and prompt, for the most part, and they treated my elderly father very nicely. This is now my dad’s new favorite place, and when we are back in town we will certainly return. Just note it’s really really loud when the place is crowded.

The food is excellent at Rumi’s! They also have quite an extensive wine list. The Shishkabob was so tender and the wings are amazing. The Chilean sea bass was delicious! I will return here many times!!

Took our son and his GF for a celebration dinner. The food was so flavorful and delicious. I highly recommend the hummus and smoked eggplant as appetizer. Chicken was very tender and my hubby devoured his lamp chops. Our server was very friendly and restaurant has a nice vibe. Will definitely go back!

Restaurant was really crowded for the COVID-19 pandemic to be ALMOST SUSTAINED. Felt very uncomfortable with the crowd of people and we won’t get into the parking situation. Service was great our server was very attentive and the food was good quality.
