    The food is superb , and have recommended it to many people.. The service is friendly & welcoming. The only suggestion I would make is to enhance the ambience with the existing gorgeous lamps, by turning off the fluorescent lighting. Other than that, it's a great eatery.

    A really lovely family run business who clearly love what they do. Tasty food & friendly service + HEAPS of vegan options. Highly recommend the leak dumplings- get the large and take left overs home because they're amazing cold the next day hahaha

    Excellent Afghani food which is fragrant and very tasty without being chilli-hot. One of the nicest meals anywhere with excellent service and a BYO option for drinks

About the restaurant

A place fit for a king

Take a time-travelling expedition back to ancient Persia through the doors of Rumi Palace. The light and bright decor with its beautiful tiling, bright lights and Middle Eastern style crockery mixes together the best of the modern with the best of the traditional. A little something old and a little something new. Well located on The Parade and just around the corner from Norwood Hoyts Cinemas, this is a fantastic pre-movie dinner location for lovers and non-lovers alike!

Diners will enjoy a varied and traditional Afghani/Iranian style menu that involves lots of spices and plenty of naan bread. Choose from the delicious Roses Kebab (lamb with onion, herbs and served with naan) or the tasty Ashak (Afghan fried dumplings). As a family run restaurant the chefs take particular pride in everything they serve.

The restaurant is a busy one but don't let that turn you off. The level of service is impeccable and the staff will ensure that they take the time to explain any of the dishes and then have the meals to your table as quick as a flash!

Open for both lunch and dinner all you need to do is grab a group of friends, scoop up your wife or husband, stash a bottle of wine in your handbag and head on down to Rumi Palace.

Best dish: the most kick-ass dessert we have ever tasted - Shollezard (rice, sugar, rosewater, saffron, slivered almonds with a cinnamon topping).
