it was our first time at Rumi's restaurant and we were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table politely and professionally. The meals were delightful, tasty and fresh. My favourite dish was the lamb, delicately flavoured and tender. I enjoyed the eggplant dish too. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive despite it was busy. It was... More

Our meal was very tasty. We made the mistake of arriving before our booked time of 6.00 pm and were sent away. We were then seated at a table with one seat in the walkway and asked to be moved. The tables are snug and small and the chairs remind me of school chairs. The meal is very pleasant but... More

Our table for three faced the wall, in fact it faced a cupboard - very grim. The food is bland for Lebanese. The sigara borecki was ok, lamb dry, barramundi unspectacular as was the pilaf. Service was ordinary. There are much better middle eastern restaurants in Melbourne.

We traveled 2hours to get here and it was worth every minute. The menu was explained very well, thus encouraging us to order several dishes to share, all as delicious as the next.

This is a top quality restaurant. Beautifully appointed, attentive service and lovely food. Three of us shared five dishes (a perfect place for sharing a range of plates) and with a Lebanese craft beer each it came to around $35 a head. A great range of vegetarian options and the lamb on the bone dish was succulent.

We recently went in a group. We had the set menu which gave us lots of interesting dishes to try. I am a return diner and on a previous occasion we tried some of the Arak. The staff are helpful and give good advice. I love it!
