    We loved the Shrimp, the meatballs, always a nice surprise of flavor blends on each entree choice. Every time we eat at Rumi's we're happy with our choices. One of my favorite restaurants close by!

    Mini Chicken wraps looked good but taste was ok. Given the reviews i had expected a lot but taste was just ok. In my opinion its just the decor, food was just ok.

    Their wings are delicious, the hot sauce has some serious spices and peppers. Love their kabobs. Touch expensive but worth it.

    I never thought I could find a good Ghormehsabzi stew here in the US. If you want to taste a real Persian stew you have to try it.

    Be prepared to wait even with a reservation on a weekend night. Food is worth the wait. We just had small plates and they were all good. Lamb sliders are the best! Dolmeh has a unique tangy flavor.

    Was a little disappointed with the chicken barg which was supposed to be spicy... ah no. They do have a chili pepper condiment sauce that upped the hot factor though. Still recommend!

    Have been to Rumi's numerous times, which means I like the place. For me, the best item on the menu is the ground beef koobideh. Very simple, but sublime. Start the meal off some Kashk Badenjoon.

    As someone who grew up on Persian food, this place is as good as it gets. Their Chilean sea bass is one of the best that I've ever had and is very generously portioned. A must try.
