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

Arameic is a language now not spoken in the modern world and is the stuff of antiquity. Centuries have passed since the rare spices of the centural orient cracked beneath the passage of Phonecian sails as they bore barrack to quay and delighted those that gravitated to new tastes, experience and melded the world - born to those uninitiated to...

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
