Rumi is medium sized restaurant that is decorated with Arabic calligraphy and paintings. The waiters are friendly and impress you with the funky shaped jugs and their fine pouring skills. Not all the dishes were great but there were some really tasty dishes. The Persian Meatballs were full of flavour, however the Spiced Lamb Shoulder we ordered wasn’t so nice. I found that it came out a bit burnt and wasn’t as soft as it could have been. The BBQ Whole King Prawns with Fennel Salt was once again flavoured just right and although it sounds simple, the dish was nice and one of my parents’ favourites of the night.
