The food here is fantastic, and probably the best value in Melbourne considering its quality. Consistently great service every time. Love it!

We went to Rumi last week end as we could not be bothered cooking and were reminded of how great this place was. The food was excellent, service great and we came away feeling very contented.

Rumi is a terrific restaurant. Seriously good food. It's hard to pick out individual dishes as we had so many highlights on this night. Best I can say is see the photos. I can't wait to return here.

I know people are becoming wary of reviewers who rave on about places on Trip Advisor but I believe in giving credit where it is due, and this place was top notch, in every respect. The wait staff were friendly and attentive but never got in the way of a good catch up with friends. Their advice was informed and... More

A busy new years eve and the food was simply brilliant. Several courses that were simply but incredibly tasty. The 961 beer was also outstanding. Rumi just gets better every year.

The staff were brilliantly helpful and knowledgable about the food and wine and clearly concerned about our general comfort and experience. One friend who was vegetarian was absolutley delighted by the choice and qulity of what she chose. And carnivores are also well catered for. The dry rub beef (beef aziehva??) was the best I have ever had or could... More

We ate 2 of the specials- shusuk (not sure how to spell it!) spicy sausages served on hummus, there were delicious. Then we had another special chicken kibbe served with a green... More
