Been there on numerous occasions during my visit to the Chinese capital city. Fantastic choices of food and great ambiance. A must for the love birds looking for a relaxing food joint. Staff very courteous and understand English (select staff).

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. Our kids outgrew the... More

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). The staff... More

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
