My first experience of Rumi was probably 12 months ago, with some people from work. But I had forgotten about this place until another colleague had mentioned that they had a brilliant dinner there and what good value it was. So I decided to revisit this place, and good value? It is damn good value.
We opted for the 5 course table banquet menu for $45pp. Where else do you get 5 courses for $45?!?!
For me, highlights were the cheese filled cigars, quail, fried baby prawns and the rice. I can't really remember the exact composition of each course, but several dishes - with a mix of meat and vegetables were presented for four courses. With the final course being of course, tea and turkish delight.
Overall, Rumi provides exceptional value for money, and I would happily, happily eat there over and over again.
Oh yeah, their pomegranate cocktail is freaken dangerous but awesome, it goes down like sugar water!!
