About Rumi's Kitchen - Sandy Springs

Amazing Persian food and service on a Sunday lunch time. Rafael made great suggestions - perfectly cooked sea bass with dill rice and an airy ice cream & sorbet desert, makhloud. He expertly took us of us with a beautiful smile and nothing was too much trouble.
We’ll be back many times!

I was disappointed to find the crowded hostess stand and a message from the hostesses that they were behind 30-40 minutes on reservations. It was so crowded and I literally made my reservation 5 minutes before arriving. I would have rather not been allowed to make a reservation than to reserve, sit through the 20 minute valet ordeal and find out that I was going to have to wait another 30-40 minutes for my "reservation". The departing valet ordeal was outrageous. I was another 20-30 minutes just to get my car. The food and our waiter were great but they have a great deal of work to do on their reservation and parking logistics.

Food was good as always. The only complaint was we had a 7:30 reservation and got seated at 8:30. The restaurant said that OpenTable overbooked them. I have been to this restaurant several times and have never seen a wait like this and have never had to wait so long to get seated.

Why make a reservation when you still have to wait 40m for a table? And there's no room/area to sit & wait!
Valet took an unacceptable 35 minutes to pull car up after dinner. ...at least 20 other patrons waited as we did. Food is great....but wait & valet made it unworthy.

Want to wait 10 minutes to leave your car with the valet? Want more fun? How about 40 minutes waiting in the cold to get it back! You won't have to worry about a server bothering you either. They show up once to take your order and once to bring your check. That's it. Rumi's used to be a fun place to eat. Used to have great food, fabulous service, great atmosphere. Now it is a lot like going to a Chili's restaurant except without the cute little uniforms. Just not a great choice anymore.... :-(

I just love their Salmon! The flavor is amazing and the size portion is the best in town. I get it with the Shirin rice. It has orange peels and pistachios and other yummy things in it. So good that I get this every time and crave it when I eat salmon somewhere else.

There was a 25 minute delay in being seated for a 7:45 reservation. The food was outstanding but packed with guest and somewhat overwhelmed by walk- ins. I would recommend this place to anyone. Very fresh and delicious.

Normally my favorite restaurant in town, but disappointed this time. Service was slow, wine by glass was a very small glass for a steep price (but people at other tables had more), and we were seated by glass door that was cold and drafty. When we reserved out table, we said dinner was for a special birthday, but waiter said and did nothing to acknowledge the occasion. Food took forever to come out even though it was not that crowded when we arrived and waiter was inattentive. Valet situation was terrible. Lost our key. Couldn’t get car out of spot. Kept us and several others standing in cold for 10 minutes while they brought more cars in to an overcrowded lot while ignoring those of us trying to leave. So the bottom line is that although this used to be one of favorite restaurants in town, I am not so sure now. I’ll have to think hard about another dinner there, but may go back for lunch. Food is still great enough to make me want more, but the overall experience was sub par for the dinner prices being charged.

Everything we had was outstanding: two appetizers from the specials list (interestingly spiced broccolirabe and lightly smoked salmon in hummus), Chilean seabass cooked to perfection and astonishingly tender and tasty lamb kabob. The wine list has lots of interesting things on it - the Oregon pinot noir we had was perfect. The place is very busy and very loud: reservations would seem essential, and don't plan on quiet conversation. Others have complained about the valet parking at busy times, and it looked like a zoo when we were there (a Friday evening): fortunately, we had overshot the restaurant and parked ourselves in another restaurant's lot a bit further down Roswell. Apart from the noise (which many people may actually like) and the parking, though, this place is wonderful. I wish we lived closer so we could go back.

We had dinner this past Saturday night at Rumis and were sadly disappointed with the service we received from Haniel. We sat in the covered porch area and from the moment we were seated were largely ignored by our waiter. After waiting 15 minutes to place our dinner order the manager finally came over and took our order. We barely saw our waiter for the rest of the evening until it was time to give us the check. Needless to say we were very dissapointed. Although we dine out regularly and frequent Rumis kitchen, we will probably not be going there again any time soon.

I took a friend to Rumi's to celebrate her birthday. This was our first time eating there & we were very happy with the decision. The food was excellent, as was the service. They even gave us a gluten free dessert in celebration of my friend's birthday. However, it is a little pricey, therefor I would only eat there to celebrate special occasions.

We came for New Year’s Eve. Thanks to our reservation we immediately sat. There were quite a few patrons who had overindulge and were pretty loud. One customer came close to knocking over a shelf of wine 😵 The food was good but it waiter didn’t bring the correct rice we ordered. No big deal because they were packed and he didn’t charge us. Portion sizes are huge but I wish there were more vegetarian options.

The food is good and menu is interesting. The waiter was knowledgeable and recommended various dishes. However, on a crowded night, with cold weather, the restaurant atmosphere anywhere near the door was miserable. Each time the door opened, a blast of cold air came well into the dining room. And waiting patrons crowded into the area near the hostess stand and actually into the dining areas, as there is nowhere else provided for them to stand. The crowd there meant that the door was held open longer and longer for patrons to come and go through the logjam. It was not well managed and made the temperature in the room terribly cold. The wait staff appeared blind or indifferent to diners with their winter coats on. Where was the manager on such a busy night?

NYE ~ it was busy (which was expected). I’ve been to Rumi’s countless times and enjoy the Chilean Sea Bass however this night is wasn’t as good . This wasn’t one piece as it normally is but 2 separate pieces pushed together. I enjoyed my entree but not as much as I normally do.

Went here for my birthday before going to an entertainment venue. Really enjoyed it. Was looking for something different and "out of the box" for us and this was worth it. Drinks were a little pricey but good. Not a lot of beer selection. Pretty good portion sizes. Waitress brought out some dried sumac seasoning for my salmon and it was awesome!! We would be very willing to go back there or suggest it to friends and family.

Service was poor
Our waiter just kept on pushing us to order and clean up our table and get us out of there
We didn’t ask for the check, yet we got one without him even asking us if we are ready for the check by the way.
We weren’t done eating either, but he took our food was going to the throw it out— twice — and I had to stop him —- twice
Never brought out bread for us — we had to ask another waiter!
It was the worst service I’ve had — still tipped him 20% but he was the worst waiter I’ve had in a long time
