I’ve been wanting to try this place for a while now and finally did. I’m sorry I waited so long. The food was outstanding. I only tried the lamb kebabs and chicken kebabs but both were very good and I would have them again. We started with the sampler appetizer and it was plenty of food everything on it was very good. While the hummus was good I like mine a bit chunky this one was really smooth. Overall excellent food.

We had an amazing dining experience at Rumi's. Upon entrance, we were impressed by the ambience, very elegantly decorated. The service was awesome. And to top it off, the food was excellent. One of the finest. Highly recommended!

Wonderful Persian dinner - first time I have eaten rice with barberry berries. Chicken kabobs really tasty. Kibbeh (cooked) appetizer also excellent. Thank you, Rumi!

Oh my, this is my family's favorite Persian restaurant outside of Iran. The food is just tremendous and we can't think how it could possibly be better. The service is very friendly and sincere --- but on this particular visit there were several missteps, hence the 4 stars. We were on the early side for dinner (30 minutes early for our 6:00 reservation but they were happy to seat us) and the noise level was great...but as the dinner progressed it became (a bit) distractingly loud.

As usual the food was hot and delicious. We always enjoy the food there. The prices are slightly higher but it is still good value for what you get

Had a family dinner here - service was very good, food was good, walls could use a coat of paint. I would definitely eat here again. Enjoyed the live music played by a gentleman on an electronic keyboard. I gave the food a "good" rating as I like the rice with dried fruit to have dried fruit that is a little plumper with more moisture in the rice. However the variety of meats we had were very good.

This was my second visit to Rumi's. The first time was for dinner with friends. I had the lamb kabab. FABULOUS!!! This visit was a business lunch. We arrived at 11:00 AM, right at opening. I ordered the chicken kabab, the lamb not being available at lunch. It was very tasty but somewhat dry, having obviously been cooked the day before, a necessary evil. That's why the lower food rating. The accompaniments were as good as the first time. Excellent.

This was our first time at Rumi's on a Friday night . There were four in our party and we were all very pleased with everything. The restaurant is small, quaint and very tastefully decorated. The food was excellent, fresh, tender and perfectly cooked. .We started with the Maust'khiar and hummus appetizers followed by a Rumi's family style salad that had feta cheese, black olives, walnuts and dates with a lime juice dressing. We all had Kabobs for the main course - lamb and beef. Everything was delicious!!
The owner waited on us and was very helpful and suggested a great dessert that we all shared.
We were pleasantly surprised that there was live music and the prices were very reasonable for the large portions. Not crowded, though it should be. We will definitely go back again.

Not what you would quite expect for storefront restaurant. Upon entering your greeted warmly in the atmosphere is simple and inviting. The dishes are complex and mouthwatering. The staff is attentive and give you plenty of time to enjoy your meal no one is in a hurry to rush you out of this place. As with Persian culture food and lively conversation go hand-in-hand so bring some friends enjoy your meal and embrace something different.

Great authentic Persian food. I had the lamb skewers and they were very tender and cooked to perfection at my requested medium cooked preference. I bought two friends of Middle eastern descent and they liked the food very much as well. The house Cabernet was very nice and was priced for value. I will definitely repeat when I'm in the area.

I am a frequent visitor to Rumi's Kitchen. It has always delivered the best persian/lebanese style cuisine in the Atlanta area, and since they changed locations the decor matches the food

Nice little neighborhood restaurant, surprisingly busy for 8:30 on a Saturday night. Food was good and portions plentiful. Could have used a bit more seasoning as it seemed on the bland side for my taste. Service was adequate, neither poor nor stellar. I would eat here again if in the area.

A wonderful array of selections at this restaurant. I had a tasty salad, and my husband had a chicken dish that was perfectly spiced and the most tender chicken I think I've ever had. We had the appetizer selection, and I think the dolmas were my favorite. It's well worth a try if you haven't eaten here before.
