    Rumi Palace was recommended to me by a friend as an alternative to another popular Afghan restaurant I frequent. The menu is extensive, the food is delicious and the service is friendly. What I appreciate most, apart from the food, is that it is generally quiet so when dining in a large group you can still hold a conversation and hear what people are saying. Rumi Palace is a great little find.

    Fantastic Persian food in Adelaide. We loved our food as it’s full of amazing flavours. Chicken kebab was succulent. The lamb and beef mince kebab was really tasty. The soup was so delicious that I wanted to learn how to make it. Overall we felt that we have travelled to someone’s home and had a great meal there.

    The food when we received it was fantastic, the downside was waiting for an hour after placing our orders for the meal to arrive

    Generous serves so even had a takeaway container for the leftovers. My wife makes her own eggplant dishes but said the meal was delicious and well balanced. The pitta bread was great and I enjoyed my lamb shank. We’ll be back.

    Great food and friendly service. The restaurant's decor is suitably Afghan giving you an authentic feel. The place was filled with Afghan diners which made the experience even more authentic. We will definitely return.

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).
