Everything on the menu looked fantastic so we decided to go with our server's recommendations - eggplant appetizer, lamb stew, beef kebabs, and the baklava and rose water, pistachio, and saffron ice cream. Everything was amazing! We'll be back!

Our server Ismael was so helpful! He suggested many dishes we would never have thought of. The lamb shank was amazing, it was so tender and flavorful. We will definately be back soon.

We had the beef kabobs for lunch and meat was perfectly done. Outstanding part of the meal, though, was the bread which was being baked fresh at the front of the restaurant. Staff was attentive and helpful in explaining the menu to us. Will definitely be back.

Order something new every time and don't eat too much bread; save room for the more-than-ample meal and dessert.

From Our Editors

The restaurant's name refers to the metaphysical poet Rumi, whose quotes "I drank that wine of which the soul is its vessel …” line the dining room's butter-hued walls. Wall sconces illuminate plates of Persian-style kebabs such as filet mignon or prawns, as well as bowls of hearty stews with walnuts, pomegranate, and sundried lime. Nearby alcoves in the walls provide window-like suggestions of tree branches, birdcages, and fake pies cooling. After admiring the décor, diners can dig into creamy hummus and stuffed grape leaves before main courses of salmon and trout fillets sautéed in delicate lemon butter sauces. After enjoying a glass of wine in the comfort of a burnt-orange banquette, guests can study Rumi's verses and attempt to think of words that rhyme with his name.

Sacramento Restaurant Guide

The menu choice of Sacramento restaurants is almost as varied as the choices at some of the California state capital's most eclectic eating spots. Local residents will find restaurants that match their tastes, moods and budgets at any given moment, and Sacramento is fast establishing itself on the culinary map of California.

Starting with cold, fresh ice cream on a hot California summer day might be a good idea, and for that, 1940s-style Gunther's Quality Ice Cream stands out in both quality and presentation. This re-creation of an ice cream parlor of old also has a great Californian cafe menu for lunch, so it is a perfect place to enjoy local cuisine along with that special milkshake or ice cream dessert.

Located a bit off the beaten path in a strip mall, Plan B Restaurant is a Parisian-style option for Sacramento dining enthusiasts who want something they would not expect to find so close to home. The menu includes French onion soup and escargots that would not be out of place in a cafe on the Champs-Elysees.

Sacramento food options from even further afield include Lemon Grass, an Asian restaurant that specializes in Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. It has been in business for more than 30 years, and locals flock to it for a taste of the Far East without having to venture far from their homes. It has distinguished itself over the years for perennial favorites like Pad Thai and authentic curries. Fox and Goose, located in an old factory building serves everything from real English fish and chips to Scottish scones, admirably represents the British Isles and its famed pub fare.

Sacramento restaurants truly bring international and local cuisine together, and the city has a selection that includes something for everyone. New restaurants continue to join old favorites as Sacramento continues to grow and prosper.
