Food nice but not what I expected. The fried cauliflower was burnt. The menu choice is either a banquet or order individual dishes. The dessert was not worth the extra money you pay for Turkish delight and poached can apricots.

A very enjoyable visit to Rumi - service was attentive and food was very good. Just one quibble - the serving of trout was rather small so not much to share between 4 people!
