Rumi's Kitchen - Avalon
Based on what I had heard I was expecting a fantastic experience. Food was ok, service was fine. It was quite hot and we were sitting g inside. Pricey for what you get.
Our server was excellent, but not very personable. She made us feel rushed to get finished so she could turn over her table.
The hostesses werent that inviting but our server Mo was phenomenal and made our first visit a night to remember he throughly explained the best wine pairing for our entrees made suggestions for our appetizers and just made the experience so enjoyable.
Love love Rumi’s and we go there frequently for business meals. Lots of great food choices and the design makes for a fantastic atmosphere. Service has called bribes to falter - they seem to pack the restaurant full and then the waitstaff doesn’t make it by the table with any regularity. The last three visits we find ourselves having to lol for and glad down the waiter. Not sure how many more times we will be willing to endure that. I hope they get it fixed.
Food was outstanding
Server very attentive
Seating was VERY tight, that’s my only complaint
The best cuisine and ambience . Service was excellent and food and drinks the best I’ve had in a long time. Prices are very reasonable for what they offer. I am quite happy and will be back.
We loved Rumi's kitchen. The interior is really beautiful. Our waiter explained everything, as we told him this was the first time dining there. Try the yoghurt trio for an appetizer with bread. So yummy.
Much improved over previous experiences. Had a really great meal.
Except for the rude hostess the dinner was great. Always consistently good food.
Really enjoyed this place. There was a long wait on a Saturday evening so a reservation is a must. It is hard to get outdoor seating but sitting inside is nice. The beef entree and lamb entree were delicious and the portions are large. The service was great and it was refreshing to us since we have experienced a lot of crappy service outside the perimeter. It IS worth the price and my left-overs made me want to go back again.
This time at Rumi’s was pretty ho-hum, with the food just OK, somewhat bland without the sumac/spice they recommend applying liberally, and the meat a bit tough. The prices keep creeping up to where it’s starting to be too much for a family of four. Service and appetizers were excellent.
OMG this was so excellent start to finish. Cannot wait to go back
Our first experience at Rumi’s was fantastic. Our server was amazing and knew just what we’d like and how we wanted it served. Although it was crowded, they had plenty of staff and the sound level was reasonable. The food is outstanding and a party of flavors. So glad we chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration.
The food was outstanding (as always). The service was very good. We had a nice time and didn’t feel hurried through the meal/experience.
My favorite restaurant. I have been eating there for years at the Sandy Spings location and now Avalon. Love love love
Always a great experience with a great meal!!
Great we vice
Had family in from out of town, knew I could trust Rumi’s Kitchen to deliver top quality food and service. The Avalon location feels a little crowded, where it seems the tables are a little closer together than at the Sandy Springs location, but that’s probably just because of how busy this location is in general. Wonderful food and overall experience for my family. They loved it and want to come back next time. Our server, Iliana, was very professional and courteous. Thank you!
Lamb kabobs and grilled vegetables were delicious!
Food and service were outstanding!
However, my wife and I had to choose outdoor seating as noise level inside is not conducive to relaxed dinner conversation.
We would strongly recommend that fans and misters be installed outdoors to help beat the heat.
Nevertheless, it was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience.....thanks very much.
Food was great especially the Lamb Shank.
Moumin was the best waiter I have ever!
Food was great.
Very polite staff and excellent food. We were especially impressed with the variety in the menu and also the location & ambiance.
All's good except we have never been seated on time on all our visits.
Amazing as always
Good food and good service. The food was delicious and the room has nice atmosphere woth nice decoration.
My husband and I visited for the first time last Saturday evening. I was very impressed by the attentive and gracious service we received by Mitch our waiter and the manager. The spinach salad, lamb and shrimp kabobs, and rice with orange peel were delicious. We were treated to some scrumptious gluten-free cake by Mitch. All and all, it was a fabulous dining experience!❤️
I had a reservation on a very busy Saturday night and was seated immediately. The restaurant was very full and tables were close together but we were able to converse without shouting.
Waitress was very good in spite of the crowd. Food was very good for this ethnic menu. Shish Kabob (beef) was tender and well seasoned with onions and peppers and a healthy serving of rice. Fried eggplant appetizer was well seasoned but mushy, no sense of anything being fried. Dessert was not offered but might have been interesting/enticing given the ethnic nature of the restaurant.
We really enjoy the Persian cuisine at Rumi's. We highly recommend dining prior to 6pm. The restaurant seems to be over crowded as the night progresses.
Great experience. You will never leave disappointed!
If you’re lucky enough to have Christopher as your server, the experience will be even better! His recommendations were spot on and the food was amazing. Plus his engaging and enthusiastic personality made a fun and delicious dining experience even better. Great restaurant. Lived up to reputation and more.
This was a fantastic choice, food was different yet approachable. Server Alex was great @ the Avalon location.
The lamb shank is incredible!
With out a doubt the best Resturant in Avalon, every item is cooked perfectly and the staff and Mgmt (especially Crystal) are excellent
Roger is the best waiter we ever had. Very articulate and described all the menu items beautifully. We wanted to try everything... and everything we did try was phenomenal!! We will be back :) thank you!!
great food. overpriced though. kind--surprised us with complimentary champaigne for our anniversary
We had a terrific meal at Rumi's. The service we right on and so was the food. We have been there several times and will be returning!!
So noisey we could not hold a conversation at all. And two grilled shrimp for $14 a little overpriced. Second time there, because of noise, will be last.
