Rumi just gets better each time. One of the few restaurants that you could quite easily just eat the small side dishes and be happily satisfied. The fried cauliflower, Persian meatballs, beans and rice pilaf are all excellent. Flavours from all over the world cooked perfectly. Highly recommended.

Ate at Rumis for my birthday and I enjoyed every mouthful. We opted for a classic banquet which consisted of 5 courses for $55. Each course consisted of approx 4-5 dishes with each person getting to try every dish. There was more than enough food, so much in fact we couldn't finish everything. The salads we had were so refreshing... More

We came here for dinner with a group of 5 including a young child. The restaurant is family friendly and the food is geared towards sharing plates. We ordered the sea bass, the lamb, meatballs, two salads, the prawns, the feta cigar borek and rice and some side dips. All came reasonably quickly and the waitress who served us was... More

Have been here several times when visiting from interstate & always look forward to dinner as a special experience. This visit I came away less enthusiastic - staff were friendly, food was satisfactory but the rushed delivery of courses spoiled it all. On booking we'd been made aware that there was a 2 hr turn around time & were fine... More

We ate here recently again and loved the food - fresh, vibrant and extremely tasty. The duck skewers were the stand out dish for us but everything was lovely.

We have been here 3 times now since moving to Melbourne 4 months ago, the food is really nice, arrives quickly and is well priced. If we want a quick family wholesome meal this is the place. Slow cooked Lamb shoulder, potatoes yum! Grilled Eggplant, vegetables all cooked uniquely. Price is good we will just keep coming back.

Walked in on a busy Thursday night and was lucky enough to get a table. The waiter made great recommendations, beer and wine list good, servings generous. Really enjoyed the quail and lamb dishes with Freekah salad. Disappointed the goat wasn't available. Just yumm
