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.

The level of noise makes it difficult for across the table conversation and would not suggest for a romantic or date dinner.

I used to go there all the time when I lived in Atlanta. I was really looking forward to going back. The service was bad at best and the food very mediocre. Our first waitress was so bad that we had to request another server. How disappointed I was!!

WONDERFUL foods. Exquisite presentations and very generous portions. Service was excellent and perfectly timed appetizers, salads and entrees. Must try Shirin rice! The lovely complimentary dishes and bread before our meal were so appreciated with our cocktails before lunch. Thank you, Rumi, Sandy Springs!

Server took 20 m to come to our table once we got seated, I had to ask another server to get the server to the table. She didn’t care and didn’t come back with the meals she spoke Spanish to us snd we don’t speak Spanish ????! The ceiling was licking and the water got on my clients head The table was very wet before we got seated. For sure I am not going back there again. Not worth the money

We love Rumi’s but the only downside each time we go is the noise level. It’s awful for trying to have any kind of conversation. The server offered us two dips to go with our Shish Kabobs once we had started eating. He did not telll us they were $9 each. He offered them in a way that made it seem like they were complimentary! Not happy about that type of service at all!!!!

The meal and service was great, however the valet was an absolute nightmare with a crazed valet employee shouting at customers, hope they correct the issue soon as the valet experience completely ruined an lovely evening!!!

Sea bass was the best I’ve ever had. Grilled shrimp appetizer was excellent and spicy. You only get two but they are huge. Like the size of 2-4 jumbo shrimps each. All the recommendations from Ro from drinks to dessert were perfect. We tried the Persian Sunset, Glimpse of Paradise, grilled shrimp, Sea Bass and Soltani kabob and we would strongly recommend all.

Dinner at Rumi’s was a wonderful surprise. I’ve never had Persian food. The food makes me want to come back again and again. The cuisine is a fine example savory dishes need not be spicy to be delicious. Every bite was mouthwatering. I had tender chicken bas, grilled vegetables, and the Persian ice cream sandwich. Save my seat.

We had the two eggplant appetizers, then each person had a “feast” consisting of meat and rice. The meat is always well cooked and seasoned and the rice has various options , my favorite is the sour cherry one. For such a large kitchen, their meals are very consistent in size, quality, and appearance. Also recommend the ice cream sandwich for dessert and their black tea.

Rumi's is always a great experience. There was one thing off with our visit last night. They had an issue with coordinating our meal. Appetizer and main course were brought out at the same time. The food was excellent as usual so we were happy with our overall experience. We'll be back!

Great food and ambiance. However out of synch timing for food. Appetizers came out very quickly at least 15 minutes before we received our first drink order. It made for an odd start and a frustrating dining experience. 6pm dinner.

Valet was only $2 and they accepted car, cash, and other app services! Service was a bit slow and disorganized. We had our appetizers before our waters came out and pretty sure our server forgot to put our drinks in. Aside from that the food was really good. Definitely a place I would go back to
