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.
Love the food
Great experience! Excellent service!!
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.
Always a great experience. Servers are nice and explain everything you need to know. Flavors are robust and enhanced. Delicious.
Was a nice night to enjoy a good meal with out of town guests
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.
Kabobs are excellent. Restaurant was full and noise level was loud.
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.
Always amazing service and food! Love the atmosphere and energy! One of my favorite places to go, whether on a date with my sexy husband, or meeting a group of girlfriends!
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.
Wonderful meal, and great service. We always enjoy our experience here.
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.
The very best!
While it was louder than I prefer, the food quality and service made the experience worthwhile.
Great at usual . Outstanding service by Katherine
Good food, fun atmosphere
Went with friend from Iran. Loved the flavors and cultural experience!
Wonderful food and service
We always enjoy our evening at Rumi’s! Our server Alex made wonderful recommendations for appetizers and wine. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the evening.
Dined outside. Nice outdoor area. Great service. Great food. Nice sized portions.
Wonderful!!! We never get tired of the Rhumi's experience. Food never disappoints! The ambiance is also lovely.
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.
It was really good experience and we really enjoyed it only it was so busy yesterday other then it was really good
The managers at Rumis were awful the night of our visit. They did not seat us for over an hour despite having made our reservation weeks before.
Our server was excellent- just stretched. Seemed like she had too many tables.
Always a treat! Live the food and service is always great!
Love the food at Rumi's and we had excellent service
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.
Our waitress, I believe she said Gabrielle, was awesome! The food was delicious as always, and the drinks were just what we wanted!
One of the best restaurants in the north Fulton area. Tremendous food and service.
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!
The food was unreal. Great and attentive service!
Bartenders and Server's are all very well trained and friendly. Just a flawless meal and service
Overall very nice! But request them to fix little noise level down.
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!
Had a great experience Dining with my husband for our anniversary! We had a knowledgeable server named Mario! He helped us choose the best items from the menu to match our preferences. He was awesome and was such a pleasure. I would dine here again in a heartbeat and plan on coming back soon with my family and friends.
Amazing food at a reasonable price.
