This is a local chain with several locations - this one is in a strip mall on the corner of 4th South and 7th East with plenty of parking. The food is simply prepared with basic ingredients. Our granddaughter, who has several food allergies, introduced us to Rumbi's. I always get the chicken sandwich with pineapple, tomato, lettuce, red onion... More

Don't let the island theme throw you off. There is a lot to choose from on the Rumbi menu, both for carnivores and vegetarians. I love that there are low-cost options available that accommodate the needs of people on a budget.

We enjoy going to Rumbi Island Grill...they always have good food that is fresh and healthy. We like the rice bowls with chicken and veggies and we get a side of the Tempura shrimp which is yummy!

We just happened by this place and went in very hungry. It was great. I loved the food as did my husband and we had a baby in tow and felt very comfortable with her here as well. It was a different kind of menu and we really enjoyed it!

I thought that the food was ok at this restaurant. They are not very generous with sauces or portions. The sweet potato fries were the best I have found, however. The Drinking fountain and condiment bar are not well planned out and quite often this area is overran with patrons and employees running into eachother. There is not a really... More

My wife loves chicken salads. So, we eat here often. They have a great selection of salads plus sandwiches - all with a Pacific island flare.

The kids love the nuggets & fries. I prefer the noodles and mahi plate and the husband likes the burgers. The Rumbi fries are worth a try.

This restaurant is located in the Gateway Shopping Center. Many choices on the menu ranging from grilled fish, shrimp, burgers. Many dishes served with caesar salad and your choice of rice. Try the "Rumbi Rice": seasoned rice dish containing beans, pineapple. I think almost all dishes were $15 or under.

If you want something healthy, I like the choose your own combo feature here. I can chose rice or noodles, chicken, pork or whatever. Veggies...and what drink. I like to eat here when I'm dieting and people want to do out somewhere.

We flew to Salt lake on our way to Yellowstone. After leaving the airport, we drove by Rumbi and thought it looked inviting. The food was delicious, the price was right and the staff nice. We were able to sit outside which was wonderful as the weather was perfect!
