My friends from Florida came with me and we had a great meal. Service was excellent and the owner hang out with us a little telling us the story.
Anyway, go and experience.
Waited exceptionally long after we arrived even though there were several open tables and we had a reservation. Appetizer portions tiny, First round of cocktails were great, second round poorly made. Third round had a hair in it.
Everything was super wonderful! This is one of my favorite restaurants if not THE favorite. Food as usual was excellent, the service was great!
The food is great. However, it can get very noisy and make it difficult to conduct a business lunch.
Great food and service, just make sure the (real) bartenders are making the drinks!😆
The food here is always wonderful. The service is friendly and efficient.
The food and service we received was great! I got the lamb Kabobs, which were very good. My husband got the tenderloin kabobs, and he was very happy with his as well. I was nervous about the rice with lentils and raisins, but it was really delicious. If you want to try some new flavors I would recommend this place. There were several other items on the menu I would like to go back and try.
Good for family dinner
Food was excellent, everyone had a great time. Highly recommend the Sea Bass or Salmon.
This was our first time at Rumi's. Everything was delicious and flavorful, from the appetizer, bread with herbs and cheese, and the entrees.
We were conducting business but we’re also friends so, it was a good time! The service was great, very attentive to our needs. We enjoyed the shared snacks or side dishes to share. The cocktails were delicious! I also had the watermelon salad. Awesome! Just know that they only serve the watermelon salad after 5pm. Just an FYI.
We had brunch and the food is always excellent. Service was a bit rushed... could’ve liked to pace ourselves a bit!
We discovered this wonderful restaurant and it is our go to place! Great food and service!
The server had a bit of an attitude. Also my wife asked several times for a refill on her drink Nd it took too long to receive the refill. I don’t know if the sever was new? As we always experience exceptional service at Rumi’s. She might need some retraining.
Their menu prices have gone up and their portions have gotten smaller!!!!
Rumi’s always delivers! Simply outstanding.
Wonderful food, wonderful service, great experience!
Came to the restaurant for the labor day for a romantic date. I had already made a reservation online and the restaurant was able to seat us promptly. The food was decent and the service was great however towards the end of our meal a guy walked into the restaurant and pushed(?) one of the servers which caused him to drop the plates and shatter everywhere. Some of the pieces made its way all the way to our table and table next to ours and hit my girlfriend in the face. Management was too busy trying to go after the "insane" guy than apologize to us for a traumatic experience. Needless to say if they are letting what they claim insane people into their restaurant, I won't be going back.
The service was good and as usual the food is excellent.
Wonderful food and service
Very nice ambiance. Service was excellent, and everything we tasted was very good. The plate of mint, olives, etc., that came with the hummus was a nice touch. Both chicken entrees ( a Kabob and Barg) were tasty, and ample portions.
My only knock on the restaurant was the price. An app, 2 kabobs,and a couple wines will easily set you back $100+tip. However, you are at Avalon, so....
I will go back to try a couple apps I saw that looked delicious.
Fantastic food, menu options, etc. All items ordered were delicious. In a group, we shared dips for appetizers and each ordered a main dish. My lamb kabobs and grilled veggies were delicious, my husband loved his beef tenderloin kabob. Super large portions. Great by the glass wine selection. Would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't so loud and hard to hold a conversation. Will try again at lunchtime instead of a crazy busy Saturday night. Will definitely go back.
We had a fabulous time. The ambiance and were we sat was wonderful and our waitress was amazing. The only issue we had was our our entree. We ordered the Shish Kabob which is the filet mignon and my first reaction when I got my food was...where's the beef? There was barely 2 oz. of meat kabobs and there were about 5 very small thin pieces...not large kabobs which I saw on other platters. So I felt like I basically spent $30 for a bunch of rice and tomatoes. I probably won't order that particular item again but will be back to try others.
We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday at Rumi's Kitchen. Everything was great... from the food to the decor to the service. We had a wonderful time. My only wish is that they have some bigger tables for larger groups. We only had 6 in our party, but at the table we were kind of cramped for space. Especially when it came time to eat, we ordered a lot of food, and had to constantly shuffle around the dishes to make room. But that was a small price to pay, send we would gladly do it again. Great work!
Never disappoints. Always great
No good Vegetarian dishes except salad, Falafel was worst, Bezoria can give better falafels
Outstanding meal! Service was great as well. Best lamb chops and Chilean Sea Bass we have ever had! and the Smoked eggplant was incredible! Cannot wait to go back! (Great Martinis and the the bartenders were awesome).
The food was excellent and the pricing was reasonable. A little warm sitting outside but atmosphere is very nice.
Great Mediterranean cuisine in Alpharetta! Energetic atmosphere, great date night, but also great for family gatherings. Chic digs too! So glad they brought Rumi's north! Will return!
Work team meeting dinner . As usual amazing food, service and ambience. I keep coming back and that says it all!
Noisy, would not seat us in the smaller room.
Simply excellent. The food is unique. It’s a Persian restaurant, yet the ingredients are so fresh it’s like they’re grown and raised right there. There is no comparable dining experience anywhere else in the Atlanta area. One of my favorite restaurants.
Great food. The service was a little slow but it was incredibly busy, for a Monday nonetheless. The rice and kabobs were delicious &
Great food, great service, great atmosphere
Amazing food as always but over crowded and noisier than normal.
Just awesome. Recommend the Salmon and be adventurous with the menu. Everything is great and you can’t go wrong.
Our reservation was for 7. The area around the hostess stand was packed. We were seated after 7:15. The dining room was very crowded and extremely noisy. Our plates were taken away while we were still eating. The waiters hurried around us with little notice that there were actually people seated.
The food was delicious.
Food was excellent! We’ll definitely be back. The hostess seemed a little irritated - but whatever. Overall the food was great. We had a lot of leftovers.. nice big portions.
We had reservation and late to table by 15 minutes-not great but not too bad. Food and services were awesome. Restaurant was pretty warm though.
The noise level was really high and it was really warm as we sat close to the kitchen. Service was awesome and the food was really great.
