Rumi's Kitchen Avalon

Traditional, elegant Persian cuisine is served in a modern space at the Avalon development. 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 te

We first encountered Rumi's by accident when we stopped at their Sandy Spring's restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on Persian-based cuisine. We had been back once since when we learned that the restaurant was creating a new location in Avalon, Alpharetta. We go to Avalon often due to the multi-plex movie theater and the myriad of restaurants, pubs and cocktail bars. Rumi's Kitchen is a mix of delectable smells and tastes based on Khoresh cuisine which refers to stew (meal) dishes served with rice (polo) flavored and colored with saffron which is a basic spice in all Iranian (Persian) dishes.This latest visit, we shared a spinach date salad (baby spinach, dates, red onion, almonds, toasted naan with date dressing) and Mirza Ghasemi (smoked eggplant mashed with tomatoes and garlic). My wife had the Chinjeh Lubia Polo (a sirloin beef kabob with garlic yogurt sauce, braised green bean and tomatoes over basmati rice). I chose the Badenjoon (an eggplant & tomato beef stew over basmati rice). It tastes similar to the Moroccan Tangine stews that I have eaten.While we didn't have one this time, Rumi serves up some fantastic sodas with passion fruit, mango and peach flavors. We had to have dessert. My wife always goes for the Baklava which consists of layers of puff pastry filled with toasted pistachios and served with cardamom ice cream. This time, I chose the white chocolate cardamom cake which is flavored with tarragon, drizzled with strawberry sauce and served with Sarshir ice cream (the ice cream is made by a different method which does not involve heating the milk. It is very tasty.We topped off the meal with Persian Tea (Chai) and walked out very happy. The wait staff is phenomenal and very attentive but not overbearing. They will describe in detail a dish if asked and insure that any special requests are honored. We have always had an enjoyable experience at Rumi's and are exceedingly glad that they have created an outpost in Alpharetta which is close to home for us. You will always have a good meal there and feel like you are sitting in the family's kitchen.

Lebanese food snob. My grandmother was from Beirut and I found the best Lebanese/Greek restaurant on the planet, Albasha, in Baton Rouge, and that's my current gold standard.The hummus here is superb. The tabouleh needed salt, which is easy, but also needed green onion. I put fresh mint in my tabouleh, an old family recipe my Lebanese Aunt provided. The salad that came with my platter was just okay. Pretty weak Greek salad dressing and nothing like the awesome dressing at Albasha..The chicken shawarma was good, but not even on the same level as the Albasha dish. The chicken had a good flavor but was not vertically broiled. Good rice though.Great service.

House of Hummus

Reviewed By milehighbullet1

Yes we never hesitate to sample a local Falafel Hummus house when out of our base of operation.This small well staffed restaurant was no a disappointment, We would all recommend a stop here to sample this authentic dish as well as their signature Hummus.The staff was a welcome to a friendly and efficient restaurant. Not a lot of atmosphere but that is not why we will return to this tasty experience.

Cafe Efendi

Reviewed By Amanda C

This place used to be one of my favorites; the staff is awesome. However since they changed ownership their food isn’t as good. There are better places in town now. Too bad really... they had a good thing going. I loved just getting pita and hummus- their salads weren’t bad either.
