Good Persian food, such as this, has flavors that aren’t merely clean but immaculate. Salt, lemon, yogurt, saffron, sumac, grill char: each flavor comes through as a clear, stark chime. You know when you visit someone’s house that is so scrubbed and shined that you know there isn’t an eddy of dust or grimy surface anywhere? That’s what this food tastes like.
But more than anything, I was impressed with how well the staff kept up during our visit as the 11-top next to us kept asking for more Coke and bread.
Persian food is always good, but at Rumi’s Kitchen, it’s a little bit better. Chef-owner Ali Mesghali takes Persian offerings in the Atlanta area beyond the buffet and into something that smacks of tradition. Look for well-made barg kebobs, mast khair, badenjoon and oven-fresh flatbread. After dinner, dip into some Persian tea.
Rumi's Kitchen has a great atmosphere, wonderful food and acceptable service. They would be receiving four stars except for one serious issue. They have absolutely no respect for disabled individuals. They allow the valet company to park cars in the handicap spots. The first time this happened, we spoke to the manager and he assured us it would be handled but not before he declared it was not the restaurants responsibility but that of the valet company. The manager never did come back around to close the conversation with us that evening. When the valet company was addressed, we were told it was the restaurants responsibility. Tonight, in an attempt to see if they had corrected the problem after bringing it to their attention, the exact scenario played out all over again.
It is important to know that the proper procedure for someone requiring a handicap spot and not being able to access one because an able-bodied person is in the spot is to call the police. When the police arrive, the car parked in the handicap spot gets ticketed -- even if they did not park it there themselves. Nothing happens to the valet company or the restaurant until the TICKETED customer takes issue.
Until we have 100% assurance this issue has been resolved and will continue to be resolved we will no longer patronize this establishment.
