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.

Sophia was out server and she was exceptional! She went a once and beyond to ensure that we had everything we needed from the appetizers, to the group photo and birthday dessert. Highly recommend having her take care of you at Rumis!

Where is the old Rumi’s appeal. The service, mediocre, tasty bites served as you sat and reviewed the menu??? Ambiance??? So disappointed! Should have just ordered it to go!

Enjoyed getting together with my friend for dinner. The only thing I would suggest is asking the party if they are celebrating or if they want dessert. We were celebrating a birthday and didn’t get to the dessert portion of the experience. Overall, the meal is delicious, as always.

Food was really good, I especially liked the yogurt dip with shallots. I didn’t think dessert was that great, but the service was amazing

The restaurant was very noisy but we were lucky to get seated in a less noisy section The appetizer they bring to the table was really good the wine was very good but our entrées came out too fast and the waiter seemed very rushed. I had the salmon which was delicious but the rice that came with it was dry and too big of a serving. We had the flan for desert which was delicious but was not warmed evenly. It was not as good as I remember

The ambiance was amazing and they have great customer service. Very attentive. The food was good as well. Definitely try the hummus as a appetizer. The lamb was so delicious and tender. I was disappointed in the shrimp appetizer (portion wise)

Great "special night out" spot, fantastic food matched by great service. Plan on taking home enough to have a second (great) meal - we loved Rumi's Kitchen.

I went on a date with my wife. We had never been but the food and service was outstanding. My favorite things were the eggplant appetizer, the shrimp appetizer and the sea bass entree (the sea bass was like butter melting in my mouth). Oh and the Persian tea! So tasty and invigorating! I instantly tasted cardamom in it. They also have such a beautiful wine selection. My wife has the Tempranillo which was perfect. Our server was Steven. He was perfect, he gave the best suggestions and service and matched our excitement about the delicious food! Noise level was very high so it took a little getting used to and we had to talk loud to hear ourselves. Other than that five star experience! We’ll be back!

Very nice food and ambience.
Lamb rack was a little burnt but overall unexpectedly delicious.
Planning twice a month visits to check out some other menu items.
Qualifies as a speciality Mediterranean restaurant.
Saving up for the $4000 bottle of red wine. :)
See you again soon.

We love Rumis but have been ordering takeout for over a year thanks to the pandemic. This was our first visit back to the restaurant and it was as excellent as always. The food is delicious and there is a lot of it. The service was prompt and very attentive . We requested a table that was not in the middle of the restaurant which can sometimes be quite loud and were seated in the small room at the front. It was perfect !

This was a surprise birthday dinner for my wife. I called ahead and asked if they could do a dessert with a candle after dinner. The host said they do a complementary dessert for special occasions. I asked her to please make a note that it was my wife's birthday and to bring the dessert after dinner. She said she would. The dessert never came. I was very disappointed.
