We've been here many times but not since Covid. In the past we have never had any issues with the food but with service. This visit was stellar. We wanted to sit outside but where they sat us was right in the sun and because no tables were available int he share they immediately seated us inside. All of the service, especially our waiter Danil (sp) was superb! The food came in the right order with the appropriate amount of time between courses and we never felt rushed in spite of a full house. The food was hot and tasted delicious.

Our first time at Rumi’s and we are looking forward to our next visit. Food was delicious - falafel, shrimp kabob, steak, baklava. We had time to enjoy our food and drinks. We were not rushed and our waitress answered our questions and made recommendations.

The service for food was great but the bar drinks service was really bad!! Took 40 minutes for the first round of drinks, then the bartender put ice in a highball glass fir cognac, really…. We all ordered shush kabobs and 2 orders, the filet was over cooked. If you were in a party of 6 or 7, you are crammed in 2 standard tables. They are short staffed and many are new employees.

The food took a long time to came, drinks tok even a longer time but the waiter that served us was outstanding. Very stingy with the nan bread and the free appetizers that they offer from the house. For a table of 4 we received one appetizer. Looking around for a table of 2 they received only one also.

The food had a lot of awesome flavor and the staff was quite attentive but not intrusive. It is a bit pricey so it might be best for a special occasion or a date night.

Rumi's never disappoints. We ordered the Lamb Sausage over Hummus appetizer, which was delicious and ample enough for 2-3 people. Our main course of Sea Bass was outstanding. Service was equally excellent and attentive. Our only complaint is THE NOISE. It is so noisy in The Avalon Rumi's, that my husband and I decided to leave. As we were walking out the hostess understood our dilemma and found us a table in a corner of a somewhat quieter room. Like I said, Rumi's never disappoints.

Our service was excellent the night we had dinner at Rumi's Kitchen. The food was very good, but pricey for what we received. Heaps of rice made the dishes look big, but the main attraction on each plate was average size. Rumi's is excessively noisey, making conversation difficult, and the tables are closely packed together. They desperately need better sound proofing.

This is my favorite restaurant and it did not disappoint during this visit. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. Just an FYI this location is MUCH louder than the original Roswell Rd location.

Loved the food, the service and the easy pace for a birthday lunch. The only detracting factor was the noise level. Will definitely be back, especially on a good weather day when we can be on the patio.

Brought my manager and a co-worker who had never dined here before. Their feedback was “our expectations were exceeded in every area.” Our waiter was spot on with suggestions and set up a great sampler for us to kick off the experience.

We had a party of 3 and we were seated at a 4 top in the bar area which I requested the dining room but apparently it was full. We waited approx 10 minutes before the server arrived and took our drink orders. After another 10 minutes we received our beverages.
After another 15 minutes my wife got up and spoke with the manager and he promptly came over and took our appetizer order.
We have eaten at Rumis many times and never had a bad experience. However, this time the food was mediocre and the service was horrible!

Went here to celebrate my friends birthday and didn’t disappoint. I have been to Rumi’s a trillion times and love their menu. Never have I ever felt disappointed on the taste and always end up taking home to go box coz of the generous quantity they give. Adas and Eggplant dish is my fav ! Loved their grilled meat too
Their spinach date salad is to die for!
