The story of Rumi begins in the ancient kingdoms of the Middle East, where the Ottoman-Turkish and Persian cultures of the Middle Ages meet - in the story of the legendary poet, mystic and sage Rumi! After many years in Norway, I wanted, Fariborz Minaei, to bring the legacy of Rumi, from my native country of Iran, into my first restaurant and my first carpet gallery of the same name, in Hønefoss. After many years of work and creativity in creating a unique restaurant at Søndre Torv in Hønefoss, we handed over the original Cafe and Restaurant Rumi to new owners, and together with my Bulgarian wife Leotina we continued the well-established concept of specialties from the Bulgarian kitchen to the newly established Rumi Restaurant and Cafe in Flå, opened in spring 2019. The restaurant is fully planned, designed and decorated by ourselves - it is shaped in our picture and is inspired by the story of Rumi! We have also opened carpet gallery in the same place, where we sell Persian rugs that I have bought myself from markets, private collections and villages in Iran.
