Description: Creative Persian cuisine is offered in a contemporary space with an outdoor patio. We are named after one of the most famous and well-read poets in the world, Jelaluddin Rumi. Rumi was a 13th century Persian poet whose visions, words, and life teach us how to reach inner peace, happiness, and love. We invite you to Rumi’s Kitchen where fresh, healthy food, attentive Persian hospitality, and an atmosphere filled with love await you.

Rumi’s Kitchen has about the best lamb shish kabob I have ever eaten. Paired with rice of your choice (orange zest, pistachios, barberries, etc.) the lamb chunks are large, succulent, and cooked to your specifications. The service is friendly and helpful and the cocktails are generous. We had a trio of yogurts with the most amazing pita for an appetizer. It is loud, though. We asked to be seated in the back room, which was a bit quieter. I’m going back to try other menu items.

We r regular at rumi's and visit almost every month. We love the food, service and ambience. This time we had gone there to enjoy my birthday dinner. The start was wired. There were two hostess and one of them could not find our reservation and when other helped her to find it she pronounced our names so incorrectly. No smile just arrogant. This is the first time we were made to feel that way. We were taken to our table and we loved the service and food. I was hoping to enjoy the baklava birthday cake the staff gets with candle every year, but I guess they forget to see that in my reservation. We could see it being served on other tables however the hostess did not even bother to see the details on our reservation. Well won't be going there to celebrate any special occasion as the entire experience this time was discriminating.

Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. This beautiful restaurant & employees have phenomenal choices of food and all are delicious. I really love the salmon but I get it with the orange zest rice. Unbelievably happy tastebuds with this combo! You won’t be sorry. I’m pescatarian, but I know all my meat loving friends love the lamb and whatnot, too.

The food was excellent and so was the service. The resturant has a nice atmosphere. The portion were just too big.

As someone that eats Persian food on a regular basis, I have to say that this is the stand out option for anyone wanting to sample genuine dishes. All their dishes are spectacular and they have an extensive selection of cocktails to accompany the food.

I would recommend that everyone make a reservation ahead of time as they are very popular, especially on Friday evening.
