This place is rustic and authentic. The food is lovely and the set menu takes all the hassle out of the evening. They do a mashed greens with sumac that is surprisingly good. The slow cooked lamb is everything that you could want. The menu...More

Had high hopes as had heard such great things about the restaurant. Service was good - efficient and pleasant. Starters were lovely but main chicken and lamb dishes tasted as though they were not the best quality meat. Lamb was bland verging on tasteless although...More

Manfriend and I have been meaning to try Rumi since we moved into the area. Did not disappoint! Service was great, attentive but not overbearing. Food was delicious, we ordered a few dishes to share and were pleasantly full rather than stuffed. The lamb shoulder...More

We met here for dinner. Food options were good but wine was from a variety of international locations and some local. I eventually found a white to suit but it was expensive. Food was very good with fast turnaround and serving size good. We had...More
