Welcome to Rumi's Kitchen - Sandy Springs! The premier Sandy Springs location for Persian Cuisine. Owner and Head Chef Ali Mesghali’s unique and flavorful touch has been wowing patrons for over 20 years. His previous restaurant, Persepolis, was a Sandy Springs favorite.

Rumi’s Kitchen - Sandy Springs draws influence from the culinary mother of the Middle East, Persia, which spanned from the banks of the Nile River in the west to the mountains of Northern India in the east, and from the shores of the Caspian Sea in the north to the deserts of Arabia in the south of the Persian Gulf.

We eat at Rumi’s on a regular basis and usually LOVE it. The noise level was significant but we could deal with that.
The service was extremely slow and then the food was not hot when it finally came out to the table. Disappointing.

Our only downer was they had the air turned so far down, we were all freezing. They could save some money by being more realistic about how cold to keep their restaurant c

Rumi’s food is excellent but the acoustics are terrible - you can’t hold a conversation without yelling across the table - this is our 3rd and final visit to Rumi’s given the noise level - it’s way too loud wherever you sit in the restaurant - it distracts from the point of dining out

Food is great , but the service is just ok.
Our server seems tired and did not really take time to explain the menu. One of the meal we ordered was missing a roll of beef and if we didn’t say anything our server will not even know. We asked about it and she get it corrected but did not even apologized or anything.
One thing you will not like is the ambience of the place . It is terribly loud and noisy inside the restaurant that you cannot hear your conversation with the person you are dining with. The chairs are too low and not comfortable while your eating.

Rumi’s continues to provide the best Persian food experience in town. While Persian food is not known for its seafood, Rumi’s Chilean Sea Bass is among the best fish dishes one can have, including in Atlanta’s top seafood restaurants. Lentil rice with zafaran aroma is my other favorite dish that can be substituted for white rice that comes almost with all dishes. Cannot wait to go back to Rumi’s.

I love the food. I have to say though it is such a loud place. My party and I aren’t even that old:)
But I overlook it bc I love the food. I also did not like the fact that valet parking is now $2. That should be complementary at a place like this.

My first time at Rumi’s. There is a complimentary starter dish (excellent cheese, olives, walnuts, radishes) with flatbread so you should wait before ordering appetizers. The entrees were excellent. Lamb, salmon, rice, roasted tomato, the side order of roasted vegetables (zucchini, yellow squash, red peppers, mushroom, onion and pineapples). Loved the pineapples. Good amount of food. There is an up-charge for substitutions (rice for a different type of rice or vegetables). $2 charge for valet parking. The chocolate tart dessert was average. Our reservations were for 8:45 pm. This place was jumping. Very noisy but not so much that we could not carry on a conversation. The floor manager was very attentive to our needs. We ran into two people that we knew. It seems like Rumi’s gets a lot of repeat business. One person said that they eat there at least once a month.

Would have given 5 stars except we were seated in front of the emergency exit door. No curtain, just a view of the valet stand and every person coming & going. There should not be a table there. Otherwise food & service was great.

The place is good with awesome Persian food and the servers are super-friendly. I just felt that it with the kind of ambience the place has, it was a bit too noisy. People can enjoy the place more if it is quieter and has some nice soothing Sufi music.

We always enjoy Rumi's. The atmosphere is alive and fun. The food is always unbelievably great! This time we had the lamb ribs app, roast salmon and shish kebab (Steak) ALL FANTASTIC! It's always a tough decision, between the Shrimp, Rack of Lamb, Sea Bass and Steak and Salmon. Try the
Green Chile Chutney as a side item. It is so flavorful and SPICY, perfect accent to the entrees if you like it Hot!
Never a bad time here, lunch or dinner, special occasion, business or weeknight! Can't Miss!
