Our family likes this place. We're not Persian, but we understand the people that own it are. Our typical order is a Pomegranate stew (I love it, but no one else seems to), the chicken kabob soltani with the saffron rice. Its a kid friendly place, with a small play area for the 2-5 year olds.

Rumi, along with 3-4 other restaurants are on the same street, side by side. They all offer middle-eastern, Persian/Turkish and somewhat Afghani foods. However, after having tried all of them, Rumi stood out the best! Rumi surpasses not only in food quality and good service, it has a great ambiance to it (even though it is not traditional).

It's located within Sanlitun district right next to the Gongtibeilu stop on line 10 of the subway - literally about 50metres away. From the other end of Sanlitun, If you head away from Yashow in the direction of the Adidas store, and walk for 10mins in a straight-line, then it's right by the highway on the left. The subway is...

Me (Chinese) and my Persian husband went here for dinner because we were curious of an Iranian restaurant in Beijing. The restaurant is beautiful and the atmosphere is nice. The food was good, but did not taste very authentic. Many typically Chinese herbs and spices were used. It wasn't bad though, just not really Persian like in Iran. Of course... More

This restaurant is definitely a good bargain for middle eastern food in Beijing. The service is perfect, the food is very tasty and the prices are acceptable. The menu can be more diversified though. Very recommended!

One of the best in Beijing for Persian cuisine. It is not far from Hilton and you will not regret eating there. Order the stews especially the chicken or shrimp

Had delicious food here at a reasonable price. The samosa is filled with a nice beef filling. Had a fattoush salad; cucumber and tomato cut into tiny bits, with thin bread pieces in a great vinegar dressing. The hummus with mushrooms was also very good. The bread is more like focaccia than pita, but was really good. We had Persian... More

Lovely atmosphere clean and charming one, choosing the street view tables will add value and taste to the various meals, toilets well decorated, with fancy hand wash sink. menu is fantastic and fully pictured and many desserts choice, brownies is served with cold chocolate sauce,,, odd. Cheese cake is creamy enough to destroy any diet plan. Worth to try all.

We've not been to Rumi for about half a year, and were pleasantly surprised yesterday. Service was prompt and friendly as always, and the food quality was consistently fresh & delicious. What we noticed and really appreciated were 2 key things: 1) The lamb was cooked to medium well, instead of well-done... a much welcomed change, as we could take... More
