This is a quaint and surprisingly busy little place located in a historic looking home. The menu is unique and it's fun to try all the different items! Service can sometimes be slow so don't go if you're in a terrible hurry. I have also ordered them the order up to have it delivered.

The food and service is great, however, it is so frustrating that they are often not open during the hours posted. They do not update their website or voicemail to indicate a change. Several people arrived there yesterday for lunch and the restaurant was closed. The website said they were open and there was no message on their phone.

Special menu for our group. Delicious appetizers and salads. Lamb was well-done but chicken and veggie dishes were perfect.

We're from Michigan, out here visiting our daughter. We have been to Rumi's every visit out here. My special favorite is the lamb shank with the special rice. My husband usually gets the gyro. Have had many conversations with the owner and enjoy each visit with him. My grand-daughter likes the grape leaves and has been eating them since she... More

We have vegan family members that visit once a year and we always make a point of eating at Rumi's. Their food is fantastic, the cozy house is comfortable and the owner often comes to our table with samples of something new they are trying in the kitchen. You absolutely HAVE to try the mushrooms appetizer. You're welcome!

The wait staff just didn't make us feel welcomed and it was our first time there! They were warm to others that have been there before. It felt like they were playing favourites to the people they recognize. That didn't bode well with me. The pita wasn't tasty. I'm very picky about pitas I like. I've found two places in... More

Great looking little house; however the food is only ok. A little dry and bland falafel balls. Lamb curry for lunch is really just shredded lamb shank with a little yellow curry sauce added - not really all cooked together to have the great flavor needed. Ok Greek salad. Soup ok. Just not that special and not sure how it... More

I like to go here with friends for lunch. The service is great and they will help walk you through the menu if you are not familiar with middle eastern cusine. Ver friendly family run business in an old house with great atmosphere

Description
This restaurant has been open about 14 months and has consistently outstanding food and is always busy. I've lived in the Middle East for many years and have Persian food from Dubai to Seattle, and this restaurant is at the top in quality in cuisine, service, and has a charming atmosphere in a converted old house in the downtown Greeley area. Adding it to your directory is a service to everyone in northern Colorado.--Professor Beverly Jensen
