Yesterday was a holiday here in China, and after visiting various places here in Beijing my husband, an old friend and I went for a leisurely Sunday lunch at Rumi. The restaurant was an oasis of cool tranquility, busy but not overwhelmingly so. They weren't offering the usual weekday buffet lunch, but that really didn't matter, there was such a... More

I'm Persian and Rumi was the worst Persian food I've ever had. The food awful and expensive. It had no flavour, service was bad. Go to Persepolis next door! Much better food and service!

A great place for iranian food. Better visit early in the evening. The area is also very nice for nightlife. Turkish and Arabian restutents are adjecent.

Been there on numerous occasions during my visit to the Chinese capital city. Fantastic choices of food and great ambiance. A must for the love birds looking for a relaxing food joint. Staff very courteous and understand English (select staff).

Our family likes this place. We're not Persian, but we understand the people that own it are. Our typical order is a Pomegranate stew (I love it, but no one else seems to), the chicken kabob soltani with the saffron rice. Its a kid friendly place, with a small play area for the 2-5 year olds. Our kids outgrew the... More

Rumi, along with 3-4 other restaurants are on the same street, side by side. They all offer middle-eastern, Persian/Turkish and somewhat Afghani foods. However, after having tried all of them, Rumi stood out the best! Rumi surpasses not only in food quality and good service, it has a great ambiance to it (even though it is not traditional). The staff... More

It's located within Sanlitun district right next to the Gongtibeilu stop on line 10 of the subway - literally about 50metres away. From the other end of Sanlitun, If you head away from Yashow in the direction of the Adidas store, and walk for 10mins in a straight-line, then it's right by the highway on the left. The subway is...
