Booked Rumi at the last minute, very tasty food though not big portions, parking horrendous! Dining sessions are timed so if you want to catch up over a long meal don't come here. Overall, a nice experience.

This was my second visit to Rumi. As per the first time, the food and the service were absolutely fantastic, and the atmosphere was good. Definitely one of Melbourne's best eateries. I'll be back.

You have to try the fried cauliflower and the slow cooked lamb shoulder. The lamb will melt in your mouth and you will never want to leave!

From the moment I walked in Rumi, I was greeted with very friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Everything was amazing from the staff, décor of the restaurant and the food. We had the shared dishes which where incredible, I loved the Egyptian rice dish. As a vegetarian I was delighted with the wide range of vegetarian options. I will be... More

The service was amazing, the food was also amazing, the staff member who was serving us (10th August 2015) knew everything about the menu and was very helpful and made great suggestions about how much food to order. I had tried to book online and was not able to figure it out, then when we arrive we were told that... More

I was very disappointed by this restaurant. The interior decoration has some pretence of style and the waiters impress you by pouring water from a height of 50-60 cm from a glass carafe. But the atmosphere is not matched by the food. I had much better lebanese food in less pretentious places. First, too much salt. Kills the flavours. I... More

We thought this was going to be a pleasant Lebanese restaurant. We were wrong! This was an outstanding culinary experience for all of us!! The decor is modern, service was exemplary, but the food was superb. The best Lebanese dining experience I've had anywhere. Every dish was a surprise. The food was light and the taste outstanding. It was suggested... More

PEWFF ( a pleasant evening with friends and family) is what RUMI is all about. From the cheery greeting at the door, to the pleasant farewell at the end of the meal, we couldn't feel more welcome. The food is excellent, really aimed at sharing, but substantial enough for those who like to hog the whole plate. Wonderfully respectful treatment... More
