“Not What it Used to Be”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

When Rumbi Grill originally opened all the offerings had a special taste of the islands. Many of the rice bowls, salads and it signature tortilla soup had a wonderful combination of spice and flavor. Now they are boring remnants of their former selves. Burgers and fries have been introduced so the menu is a confusing mess. The food is just so-so. Can't recommend it any more.

“island”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I was a little confused about which island it was. Like, some seemed Hawaiian, but some seemed Carribbean. Maybe it's just the idea of islands in general, but then why don't they have like fish and chips? England is an island. Or whatever food they eat in Greenland. Wait does anyone live in Greenland?

“Excellent Island Food”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

My wife and I love to visit Rumbi Grill in Orem. The food is always good and the service is very good too. We like the Rumbi Rice and various dishes. The Rumbi fries are a fun treat to go along with any meal or as a quick appetizer too. Thanks Rumbi Grill!!

I like to get the brown rice. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. A nice selection. The place is very clean with a nice atmosphere. A nice place for lunch or dinner.

“Yes, please!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

My brother and sister-in-law brought us here on a recent visit to Utah and we LOVED this place. I got a chicken and steak rice bowl with the Rumbi rice and it was *awesome*. Fish tacos were great. Burgers were amazing. Maybe a bit overpriced, but if I lived there I would go back again and again.
