Hostess seemed inexperienced and was not professionally managing people. We had a reservation and had to wait for 25 minutes to get a table. We saw several walk ins getting seated before us. Also, hostess kept forgetting who I was after checking in. I frequent both locations often but this time the experience was totally unacceptable and do not hold the restaurant in high regard.

Our waitress Nicky was outstanding. She suggested doing a "family style" dinner since we had a party of 6. It was perfect.
They even brought a heater closer to our table as the night cooled down!

I love Rumi's Kitchen! The food is just incredible. During my last visit, the table ordered the hummus, grilled shrimp, falafel, and wings to start. After snacking on those starters, we shared the lamb kabob and the Chilean Sea Bass entrees. This was plenty of food for four people! My advice is to order conservatively and then order more. It's a lot of food! I continuously say that Rumi's is in my Top 5 restaurants of all time. Definitely recommend.

I've never had Persian food and I'm sad it took this long to try it. I was not disappointed. Shrimp kabobs and basmati rice with orange and pistachios were heaven. Hummus was there best I've ever tried. I will return!!

I came back to Rumi kitchen after one year .. our main server was great but the drinks took a while to come and we ordered scotch and when my dad ordered a refill it was finished . The server that brought the food to the table , found the dishes too heavy and dropped water on us and had just spilled water on the table next to us . The food didn’t taste as good as it used too .
I think they are still getting their act together after covid .
