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 made a reservation 5 days in advance and still had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. It was pretty annoying. I had to ask the hostess 4 times how much longer (@15 mins, 25 mins, 35 mins, & again at 45 mins.). The 3 hostesses were very polite but didn't seem to do anything to speed things along. Also, there is little room for folks waiting on their table. We were stuck in the entrance traffic as well a service/wait staff delivering food to their tables. Our meal and server (Rafael) were outstanding once we were seated.

Everything about Rumi's is 5 star (except for the noise level...difficult to hold a conversation). The service is wonderful and the food is outstanding. We have never had a bad meal here. We bring people all the time and they all LOVE it!!

Gustavo is a fantastic server. Everything about this place pushes my happy buttons. The food is fab, the service is outstanding. Kudos to the management here for training their staff properly. The Seabass is out of this world.

This is some of the best food in Atlanta. Run, don’t walk to Rumi’s Kitchen.

Rumi's is always packed and on this Monday night with 6 friends was no different. The energy, the food, the excellent servers all contribute to an experience worth repeating. The Middle Eastern food is fresh and healthy. The lamb sliders and the grilled shrimp are excellent choices to start with. The lamb chops and the filet kabobs are cooked perfectly. Go treat yourself to a new experience and discover why so many call this there favorite restaurant in Sandy Springs.

One of my favorite restaurants in the area. Rumi's kitchen servers authentic Persian cuisine. The hummus is amazing and the Naan is freshly made in the clay ovens that are out in the open. Don't miss them, you have to see how the Naan is made and bakes on the side of the open ovens. The portions are huge and the food is delicious. I had the Lamb salad, YUM!

The food and service were great, but we arrived early for our 7:30 reservation and were not seated until 8. There is not much space to wait for your table, so we seemed to be totally in the way of servers. We made a reservation because members of our party are elderly and needed to be seated as quickly as possible, but they seemed completely over-booked. I would give them 5 stars except the wait was so long.

We love the food. But the service ruined this experience for us. We were sat pretty quickly. Then we were forgotten. It took them awhile to realize a server never came to our table. When they finally got us a server, she was awful. She acted really snobby, detached and unfriendly. Very odd attitude for a server. We are & left quickly. We won’t be back.

My husband took me and our two sons for Mother's Day lunch. Food was outstanding as usual. We had an array of appetizers followed by lamb kabobs and sea bass kabobs that tasted so buttery tasting. Always great service!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the entire Atlanta Metro area.

From the moment the valet takes your keys until the time you are back in your car the service and employees are top-notch. We have dined here many times and have to encounter an employee who wasn't pleasant and helpful.
I recall on our first visit the server taking time to walk us through the foid and a bit of the culture, it was great.

With respect to the food, I try something different every time, each dish has been tasty and at the correct temperature. Each course is delivered timely, we have to feel rushed or passed over.

Rumis also has a decent wine selection and top shelf drinks.

I highly recommend this place; even at the risk of making it difficult to get a reservation.

Rumi's created an experience to live for. I had the Chicken Kabob with rice and raisins. Wow. If you like it spicy, ask for the red hot sauce. The food was savory, delicious and melted in my mouth. I will be coming here on a regular.

The space is very popular and a reservation is essential. We arrived a few minutes early but were seated close to our reservation time. The space is roomy and attractive but the main event is the piles of meats and different exotic rice dishes.
