Chef Ali Mesghali"s nearly lifelong love of cooking combined with his love for Sufism brought to life for the first time in Atlanta's culinary scene the concept of Rumi's Kitchen in 2005. At Rumi's Kitchen, Ali has been able to artfully bring together an atmosphere full of joyous energy with attentive and generous Persian hospitality along with the unforgettable unique aromas and flavors of the Persian cuisine which is truly reflective of his simple intention to bring joy and happiness to the overall dining experience of the guests. Every member of the team at Rumi's Kitchen strives in delivering the service that is demanded by such a unique intention and vision.

Food was great, and we had a great server! It was a bit loud in the restaurant, but overall, a really nice experience!

My first experience was really full of mixed emotions. I was dissatisfied from the beginning after having to wait an additional 45 minutes after my schedule reservation. The hostesses were not empathetic and offered very little information about the wait time. The saving grace was the delicious food and kindness of Alex and Mike. Two remarkable men, with great customer service techniques who were striving to do all they could to ensure we had a positive experience.

Rumis was rockin on Saturday night! We had 7:45 resv. But we weren’t seated till 8:20. That was the reason I didn’t give 5 stars. But food, service ambiance and price were excellent! Very nice cocktail selection . Love this place!

Pricy food, over crowded and seating is on top of each other, very loud and food was ok but not worth the money.

Rumi's food is always excellent. It is always busy and a good idea to make reservations, which I did three days in advance for a Saturday night 5:30 reservation. However when we got there we had to wait 15 minutes for a table despite the outside seating appearing to be wide open. The hostesses are frequently sullen and dismissive and this night was no different. However the wait staff is always top notch. We had to wait a very long time for our drinks and our waitress acknowledged this and gave us dessert on the house. FYI the dessert was the least appetizing part of the meal. Though this review may sound negative, we still always enjoy going to Rumi's for a good food and good service and great atmosphere especially with outdoor seating.
