‘’The heart is cooking a pot of food for you. Be patient until it is cooked’’

Rumi at Parnell introduces a traditional Persian dining experience to Auckland, serving authentic home-made dishes.

The restaurant has a ‘’field to fork’’  approach, showcasing the best local produce Auckland has to offer. This is traditional cooking inspired by the bounty of nature, surrounding our beautiful Tamaki Makaurau, Auckland. We source our ingredients from local farms, fresh markets and small-scale sustainable producers.

In addition, we have our own small organic farm in Glenbrook where we cultivate some of our produce including tomatoes, fresh herbs and some of our herbal teas.

Rumi is a place to unwind, relax, make connections and appreciate kindness while enjoying mouth watering Persian food and traditional music.
