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.

Rumi's is one of our favorites in the Atlanta area. We sat outside due to the noise level but the heaters went so they had to move us inside. I'm not sure what they cane do about the noise but I prefer sitting outside at the Avalon Rumis because this one is so loud. Food is amazing. Service was good. It took over an hour for them to take our order though.

I’ve been to Rumi’s twice. The first time was great- food and service. This last visit on. Sunday afternoon was awful. The server disappeared for almost half an hour after delivering our appetizer hummus plate, without taking our food order. I specified that I have a dairy allergy but was still served food with dairy. I didn’t realize the mistake until after I ate. As a result, I got very sick. Ruined the remainder of my Sunday.

I won’t go back.

As always, EXCELLENT! Wings, Green Chili Chutney, Mirza Ghasemi, Everything we had, fantastic. We brought our 11 yr old goddaughter for her first "grown up" dinner and she loved it too. So wonderful. Thank you all for taking such good care of us!

Delicious food and very generous portion sizes. One main entree ("feast" plate) was enough for two. Disappointed with the number of people in the restaurant and the number of guests without masks during a pandemic. Probably won't return until after the pandemic is over.

The background music was too loud, had to almost yell to carry on a conversation. I would not call it energetic at all. The food was very good and plentiful and the service was good as well. The waitress said the salad was included with the dinner which it is not so be aware.

I love Rumis! I usually go to Avalon, this was my first time @ the sandy springs location. The service was AMAZING and very attentive. I order the wrong thing! (Which I never do!) I was not going to send it back, I realized right away and I was just going to take a bite and box it up..I don't like lamb shank, someone else at the table orderd it, I thought they said lamb kabob and I was like I'll get the same thing!!
The kitchen and the food runner noticed my face when the food came out, and the food runner must have heard me say to the table-"I ordered the wrong thing" because a few moments later the waitress came by and said they were preparing me the lamb kabob how do you want it cooked? :)!! I was shocked that they notice and immediately fixed the mistake I made! I love good service like this, I'm glad I got my lamb kabob and I will now be going to this location more often! Thank you Rumis!!

This was my second time to this restaurant and I can say my server, John (I believe that was his name) was amazing. My family had never came here before but they had a great time. His recommendations to his quick service to even the way he cleaned and reset the table was amazing. I truly enjoyed myself and will be returning with more people! I also really enjoyed our valet guys that were sooo nice and quick and service was perfect! Thank you to our server and valet staff who made it great from the moment of arrival to leaving the restaurant!

We have been huge fans of Rumi’s for years and couldn’t wait to share the experience with our daughter’s boyfriend. We were seated by the front door and almost felt like we weren’t “up to standards”. We were dressed casually as it was a Monday nite and all the other patrons were casual too. My daughter’s chicken barg was raw. Rumi’s did bring her a salad but her food arrived after we were all done with our entrees. We were not offered to have it removed from the bill and we didn’t feel comfortable asking as the waitress seemed distracted and almost annoyed with us for our requests. It was not crowded at all so I’m not sure what the problem was. We are so sad because Rumi’s has always been a family favorite.
