Lebanese stylish restaurant

I had the freekeh salad takeaway from here the other night. There's no waiting when you call for takeaway. The restaurant itself is stylish and the street sign has arabic symbols on it also. The salad was a huge serve, and very tasty. The pudding is something l hope to try if l dine in sometime.

Wow.wow wow. The food and service is amazing. The only fault is that it is a little dark, slightly hard to read the menu. Get your phone out, turn the torch button on,problem solved. Will be going again in July. Great great great.

Excellent. Can't say much more than that. We go there on a semi regular basis and have never been disappointed. In fact one night we dropped in and couldn't decide what to eat, the waitress decided and it was exactly what we needed. It is really good middle eastern or Turkish food, dunno which, but way above what you may... More

It has been a while since I had eaten good Lebanese food and Rumi definitely lived up to the reviews. We had a mix of starters. The labne was especially good as was the fried cauliflower. We ordered two main dishes, the fish of the day which was trout, wrapped in vine leaves and grilled, and the other a veal... More

Fantastic find, this restaurant has a dimly lit romantic vibe. The menu is too die for, and the waiters are exceptional. if you can't pick out of all the amazing food, give the banquet a go.

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.
