We offer a menu based on traditional dining experiences in Lebanon where small to medium sized dishes are shared amongst the table. The food is authentic but done with a refined approach and a deft interpretation of a classic cuisine. The plate size encourages sharing in the traditional dining style of Lebanon.
The only annoying aspect of the night was the waitress often coming to the table asking if we were finished with each course when there was obviously food still on our plates-it was intrusive and felt pressured to hurry up
However the complementary Prosecco was a nice touch on International Women’s Day
The waitress could have been more attentive as the restaurant was quiet. However the food is amazing !
We had a lovely night and extremely glad that we made the effort to come to Brunswick from the Eastern suburbs. Amazing food and service. We will be back and will bring friends. Thankyou and keep up the great work Rumi
My only criticism would be towards the $7 pickles! Having lived in the Middle East and eaten a lot of delicious fresh pickles, I thought these were overpriced and didn't taste fresh. Other than that, service was great. Wait staff were friendly and approachable and the rest of the dishes we ordered were good.
The food was interestingly presented and well spiced, we enjoyed every mouthful! The staff were informative of the food and extremely accommodating when booking, We will look forward to returning and trying more dishes.
Rumi delivered an amazing meal once again. They never fail to delight and I will continue to go and to recommend Rumi to anyone looking for a middle eastern meal.
Very tasty, high quality ingredients, lots of variety and exceptional value.
So delicious. Rumi has been one of my favourite restaurants for years. Unfortunately my glass of Shiraz was served cold (glasses and bottles stored too close to the airconditioning?) which affected the flavour, but everything else was great.
We enjoyed everything we ordered. The flavours were amazing. Staff were polite and helpful.
We have been to Rumi many times & have always been happy with the food, but the Valentine’s Day set menu was disappointing. The portions were too small for the price charged .
Rumi is my fav restaurants in Brunswick. Service is always nice and friendly and the food is fresh and full of flavour. I love it!
Food was not very good. Food was just average. Wouldn't recommend
We love Rumi, wonderful food and terrific service. Best valentines dessert I've ever had!
Really enjoyed the food. I was with a party of 4 and we ordered several dishes to share. The food was very good. Each person in my group enjoyed it. I had to squeeze in a dessert which was pretty yummy.
I would definitely go back!
The food at Rumi can't be faulted - delicious, good-sized servings and something for everyone. Service is very good (our waitress was excellent - short, dark hair; there was another one with little ponytails who was unfriendly and brusque but all she did was slam down a few plates and walk off - thank god we didn't have her all night!). I have to say, though, that I'm a bit scandalised by paying $7.50 for a bottle of water... really? The space is very noisy (we had the misfortune of a very loud group next to us - someone talking about personal health issues in a booming, grating voice) so if that doesn't suit you, you'll need to take that into consideration.
One of my fave places to eat in Brunswick, as a vegetarian it is brilliant, such a variety and so good!
Lovely staff and amazing food! Wine list could have a bit more variety however the cocktails make up for what’s missing.
Just amazing food accompanied by wonderful attentive service
Fantastic as always, shared home style middle eastern dishes, reasonably priced, great service with a relaxed atmosphere.
Really well spiced food and excellent service. Really well spiced food and excellent service.
A pleasant space , and charming service.
Food generally good, particularly the salads.
Only real complaint was that the cheese cigars and the chicken wings were excessively salty.
Having eaten at Rumi a couple of years ago I was quite excited going back. Unfortunately the food quality wasn’t at the same level. Possibly a bad night? Service was great though.
Great meal and great team to look after you. Loved the banquet!
Rumi never disappoints. Food and drinks are delicious.
I enjoyed the food but a friend though the lamb dish was a little dry.
the mocktails were fantastic.
Went here with two other couples and we loved it. The food was great and reasonably priced. Will come back to this restaurant
Thank you for an incredibly memorable food experience. The food and Rumi drink was so tasty and and mouth watering, we talked about it for days. Thank you
Had a romantic dinner for NYE and loved it as usual. Food is always delicious - lamb shoulder is definitely a stand out. Still my favourite restaurant.
We went to Rumi’s for New Years Eve dinner. The food was all delicious and the vegetarian in our party was easily accommodated for. Service was also excellent.
Unfortunately the lamb was chewy.... it's usually incredibly tender, so we were a bit disappointed, not the usual rumi standard. And our zucchini was undercooked
Very tasty Middle Eastern food with a modern twist in a pleasant space. Very noisy.
Great food, excellent service & gluten free options - the best combination for pre-Christmas group dinner.
Normally Rumi is excellent - food, service and ambiance. We made the mistake of going in the week before Christmas. Food was well below par. Disappointing.
Only wish was that our table of 4 was only people there as noise levels rose
Definitely will return
Great food, fantastic service, 100% satisfied diners. Couldn't recommend more.
Small serves but great taste. My two big eating boys could have eaten a lot more than recommended.
We opted for the set menu and it was delicious! There was a wonderful variation of crispy tasty filo cigars, crunchy baby scrimps to the spicey lamb and tasty chicken portions. The salads were fresh, the pickled veggies mouth watering. The Rumi cocktail with pomegranite juice was absolutely cooling on a very hot evening! Great food and drink in Brunswick!!
Delicious food. Good recommendations from the wait staff re quantities etc. Wine was a little pricey.
very good food with excellent service, food was tasty with some creative dishes.
Food and service was amazing, its just unfortunate that we had the 6pm session and they were trying to rush us out.
