Ate here with my husband and teenaged son last night. Good was excellent especially the sliced smoked duck Breast appetizer just amazing! All the food was delicious and well presented. The lamb main course was almost as fabulous as the appetizer of duck.It melted in a wonderful way when your fork touched it, and has a lovely smoky taste. My... More

The move to larger premises has only allowed more people to enjoy the Middle Eastern treats a la Rumi. Certainly far above the Kebab palaces that abound;at Rumi you will discover fine Lebanese style food as seen from a Melbourne foodie perspective. Not exactly Beirut, Tripoli, Sidon or even Zahle... But very enjoyable nevertheless. Excellent range of drinks available but... More

First visit to restaurant, easy to book online, text reminder appreciated. Great service, very attentive waiters, left the food decisions to them and were not disappointed. Our food was diverse in flavour, and the lamb was so tender. The desserts came on a platter to share, with a candle for the birthday girl.

When our hosts told us that we were going to a Lebanese restaurant I expected the usual kebabs, tabouleh, hummous, kibbeh and falafel. Nothing could be further from that traditional concept at Rumi. The five of us tasted many dishes including the BBQ King Prawns, Persian Meatballs, Fried Cauliflower, Quail ‘Joojeh’ Kebab, Duck ‘Fesenjen’ and Advieh marinated lamb shoulder. While... More

We ordered Labne (Yougurt) which was some yogurt in a small bowl with olive oil in te ecenter. We also had some Sigara Boregi (pastry filled cheese). They were nice, but too salty for our taste Then... More

Great spot for middle eastern with a flare . Menu changes seasonally depending on local produce that's available. Must try Brussel sprout fattoush, Persian meat balls and a new addition of pumpkin with dukkah and chickpeas. I will for stop by and have the other delicious dishes on the menu.

Went there for our wedding anniversary. Staff members were ever so helpful with our selections. Food and drinks were excellent, as they always have in the past. When we told them at the end of our dinner that it was our anniversary, we were given a small box of Turkish delight. Such a sweet ending to a perfect evening.

We arrived early, 6pm, and we were glad we had. They had one table left for the night. Whilst we were eating they were having to turn customers away. Service fantastic. Food imaginative and delicious. I think value for money. Good wine list.

Thank FunFare
