I approached and asked for a table for 5 and they were very happy to oblige. The restaurant only had a few occupied tables so plenty of tables were available. My family with my three kids aged 11, 9 and 5 were lagging behind. As...soon as they arrived there were suddenly no tables available. I explained that we were going to spend a lot of money and that all my kids were big eaters and going to eat full size meals and that we would also be spending on a nice bottle of wine too. Suddenly, they had a table available for us. Leaving a bad taste in my mouth, I told the owner I was no longer interested in eating there and I would go elsewhere. He told me to get f….d. We ended up going to Loose Moose which was nearby and we had a wonderful time and were very much welcomed. I’m very glad that my $234 went to a lovely restaurant that appreciated the business. I would highly recommended that whether you are a family or not, you avoid this place. They really are a disgrace.More

We visited Rumi as a family group of a few adults and children, having booked in advance and being on holiday from Melbourne and Brisbane. We ordered 2 platters, plus a bunch of starters, bread and drinks. The food was very good. However, the manager...complained to us that with the size of our group, we should have ordered 3 platters not two. We explained that nobody had mentioned this when we ordered, and that the menu doesn't stipulate any minimum charge per head. The manager got heated, as did we, and he then stormed off! Not happy, we complained to one of the waiters, and did order a third platter to comply. In the end we didn't finish two, cancelled the third. The manager, when I complained to him later, and demanded he say the word "sorry" for his behaviour, refused to, and said he will call the police if I don't stop complaining (I was raising my voice by now!). What a drama.More

Lovely decor to sit and enjoy delicious Persian food. Good size dishes. The marinated grilled lamb cutlets were fantastic, also the stuffed capsicum.

I met friends here for lunch. The restaurant had lost our booking, and we were told the chef hadn't shown up yet. After waiting 10-15 minutes the head chef arrived and we were seated at an outside table - at our request. The menu has...lots to choose from. Meals are generous, lots of flavour. I was disappointed the Persian rice didn't have the crunchy bottom I have had at other Persian restaurants. Service was a little slow - we weren't in a hurry so didn't mind. Try the Turkish tea set - it's unusual, and quite nice.More

We have been to Rumi a few times. The food has been excellent and the servings are good size. A little bit expensive but it is understandable because of the location. The only thing we were not happy with was that the size of dips...served with bred was a bit small. The manager Nigel provided excellent service. Be going there soon again. Keep it up.More
