About Rumi's Kitchen - Sandy Springs

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.

Went here for lunch. Great service from attentive staff. Food was good, probably portion was on the large side for lunch but takeout boxes were availble.

Food was overpriced on Valentine's day. Most dishes were not available and at a $75 per head is very bad value for money. The enteee of fish was not edible but the first 2 courses were great . Dessert was surprsingly bad for a persian reataurant. Baklava way too sweet.

Food was subpar. I didnt care for the pre-fix menu so we scrambled to find a seat at the bar. We had to send one dish back and it just wasnt that great overall

Totally overrated... food was large in size but was VERY underwhelming in taste. Restaurant was large, pretty, & is always busy, so we were really surprised at how mediocre the service & food was. Meh.
Would not go back.

Very trendy....good food and great service! Noise level is a little loud because the place is so big and holds a much larger crowd than their old location.

Great food but very crowded and noisy unless lucky to get table in the front awning area. Parking can get to be a hassle but the valet crew handled it as well as anywhere else.

Hands down one of my top three favorite restaurants in Atlanta. The sea bass was perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth. Eggplant small plates are amazing, try them even if eggplant isn't your favourite.

We've been coming here ever since they opened, never disappoints. One of the most consistently great restaurants in Atlanta. While not the cheapest dinner in town, you won't get better value for extremely high quality, well prepared food and energetic staff.

We have always loved Rumi’s. Saturday night, the hostess got my reservation really really messed up. Not once, but three times. We waited over an hour to be seated. No one compted us for anything. It is so crowded, so overwhelming with noise that you can’t hear yourself think. It will be a long while before we go back.

Excellent food and service. Despite having a reservation, however, the popularity of this establishment can result having to wait for an additional 20-30 min to secure your reserved table. A couple additional disadvantages: it would not be the ideal spot for an intimate setting given the noise-level, and you may have to end up waiting to have your car brought around (again, given the popularity). The food itself is outstanding and overall, it is a definite "must try".

The food was so tasty and our server was extremely tentative without being annoying. Everything was wonderful except the restaurant was extremely crowded and extremely noisy. People were standing everywhere. Thankfully we were sat in he back and didn’t have to stare at people’s butts as they waited for their table as those closer to the door did.
