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.

One word... Outstanding! This was my first time visiting Rumi's Kitchen and it did NOT disappoint! My cousin and I went to celebrate her birthday and I'm so glad we did! It had an energetic vibe and a cool and quaint patio - which is where we were seated. Before being seated however, we saw runners carrying plates full of the most amazing-looking dishes with enormous portion-sizes and the aromas were delightful! We had a great waiter, Phoenix, who was really accommodating and provided great service. I was a little bummed with the limited selection of vegan options, but considering it's not a vegan restaurant that's okay. They have a small parking lot so expect to wait a bit to turn in on a Friday or Saturday night and bring some cash to tip their valet. All in all, we had a wonderful experience and I can't wait to go back with my Hubby!

As a person married to a Persian woman (a great cook, to boot), my standards for Persian food are a bit high. Rumi's Kitchen easily meets that bar.

Food is good as ever, but don’t plan to get anything cooked to order when restaurant is busy. Medium rare is not in their wheelhouse. Great place for power dinner—not for intimate conversation. Wines are overpriced by 50 percent but interesting.

Rumi is always excellent. One of my favorite places in Atlanta. The flavor profile of the food is the so creative and authentic. I’m a huge fan always bringing guests. Open more locations. A real first rate classy restaurant.

Unfortunately, Rumis Kitchen was once my favourite place to go, but in the last few years the quality of the food has definitely suffered. From the outset, there was poor organization and service. The valet were discombobulated. It took them 45 minutes to seat us for our 8:15 reservation. The Lamb was mediocre and dry at best with the tomato undercooked. The only good dish that hasnt changed is the badenjoon starter. The valet lost the keys for another guest and had a 10 party queue waiting in the rain for them to finally let the keys free for guests to get their cars themselves.

We had a lovely birthday celebration on the patio. Marcus was our server and he was very accommodating, attentive, and helpful with dietary restrictions, and knowledgeable about the menu. He knew exactly what dessert we could have too, and it was exquisite! We will definitely be back soon!

Dinner was fine. Car that was valeted at Rumi’s was taken to some off site lot and was BOOTED ! Had to wait for someone to tell me why my car had not been brought to us. Then had to wait while someone paid to have the boot removed. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. Will NEVER go there again.
I entrusted my car to them and they parked it somewhere where it was booted.

It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and our first time dining indoors since the pandemic (we hadn’t been to a restaurant at all for the past 20 months). We were a little skeptical even though we were all fully vaccinated so we asked for a distanced table and were very happy with the table allocated to us. The Restaurant was buzzing with activity and the ambiance was classy, elegant, stylish and friendly too. The food was excellent and the staff friendly, helpful and efficient. The beverage menu is extensive with a great selection of wines and cocktails too. The complimentary Starters were fresh and refreshing, the Main Courses were flavorful, cooked to perfection, ample portion sizes and we even had doggie bags to take home. The desserts were perfect, not too sweet and with a delicate Persian flavour. Overall, it was a great dining experience and an enjoyable evening out. I can highly recommend Rumi’s Kitchen to anyone for a special occasion or even just a nice, quiet evening out.
