About Sharma Ethnic Cuisines
Sharma Indian Restaurant St. Julian's
The Indian term Sharma means ‘happiness’ or ‘joy’, so we felt it was a great fit for our Indian & Ethnic Restaurant. We aim to please all our customers and we do so by creating an enjoyable and delicious dining experience.
We are delighted to have reviews stating we are one of the best Indian restaurants in Malta! We feel that our authentic Indian ingredients, vast menu of typical Indian dishes and our passion for good food and great service really set us among the best.
The best Indian restaurant in Malta – TripAdvisor Reviewer
“For me this is the best value Indian restaurant in Malta. We have visited several times during the last couple of years and every time the food was very good and the service fast.”
A taste of India – TripAdvisor Reviewer
“Well, one thing can be said for this place, which is Fantastic. This was my first time trying an Indian cuisine, and certainly it did not disappoint….
Obviously it is the one place to go either if you’re an Indian fanatic who loves that bit of spicy food or just a normal person who is looking for a relaxing venue where you can enjoy a super delicious meal, surely made with absolute passion.”
In addition to providing an excellent experience dining-in, we are also pleased to offer an Indian take-away or Indian food delivery service around all Malta, to allow you to enjoy our authentic Indian dishes at home.
Sharma Ethnic Cuisines St. Julian's
Besides being an Indian Restaurant, Sharma St. Julian's serves a good selection of authentic Arabian dishes as well, making it an Ethnic Cuisine. Hence aside from our popular curry & Indian-spiced dishes, one can also enjoy a selection of Arabian appetizers such as Dolmah & Falafel, Arabian main dishes from our grill including koftah & kebabs, and other traditional stew dishes seasoned with Arabian spices!
Ethnic Cuisine at its best – TripAdvisor Reviewer
“Sharma offers Indian and Arabic cuisine at its best. The 1001 night atmosphere and the variety of oriental spices take you in another world immediately. We love to order different starters and share them between all, main dishes may be creamy curries, tagines or grilled meat, so everyone will find his favourite.”
Guests enjoy choosing from our varied menu of Indian, Arabian & Mediterranean dishes, because no matter who you visit Sharma with, there is something to please everyone. We proudly serve traditional Maltese dishes such as rabbit stew too! Of course other Mediterranean dishes including several pasta options and a variety of salads are also available on our menu. Our dessert menu offers a range of sweets from around the world – Maltese Imqaret, Indian Ice Cream and platters of Arabian sweets – letting you try something new each time you visit.
Sharma St. Julian's - A Halal Restaurant In Malta
Moreover at Sharma St. Julian's we observe halal practice! Sharma is the ideal place for Muslims to enjoy a meal as we have done everything possible to create a wonderful atmosphere and a varied menu of classic Indian, Arabian and Mediterranean halal dishes. Our entire restaurant is pork free, our chefs are halal trained and our kitchen is run in a halal way. We work carefully with our suppliers to ensure that all of our food products are halal too.
Our beautiful location at Portomaso lets you sit inside or outside, depending on your preference, and enjoy views of the marina. Our St. Julians location is ideal for tourists staying in Paceville area, and any part of St. Julians and Sliema, all of which are within walking distance to enjoy a leisurely stroll home after your meal. If you prefer to drive or are visiting from further afield, we are pleased to confirm that parking at Portomaso car park is free for 2 hours.
We look forward to having you join us very soon!
Nice restaurant with a lovely location. The food was nice too.
Lovely food, service and evening!
The atmosphere was very nice and the food was excellent, i even asked for a small cake as the dinner was for a birthday occasion and they came with it surprising even myself ! Highly recommended and will be going again for sure !
Overall experience was great. Our waiter was great too and food intervals was served very well. Directional Signage towards the restaurant from the parking should be considered since my guests did not find any directions from inside and ended up walking a long way.
Chicken was tender and we'll marinated..good portions
As frequent Customers of Sharma, we have been there last Saturday for Dinner. We opted for the new buffet this time. The Food is very good though for 25 Euro, the choice is very limited. It would be much nicer to have a better variety of food (2 choices of beef and 2 choices of lamb for example). As when compared to other Indian buffet's much more dished are offered.
It was not the first time that we have visited Sharma, but this time we wanted to try the Buffet! We booked a table for 6 for Sunday Lunch at 14;00hr. We were very looking forward but unfortunately we left very unimpressed!! what is Indian Food without Naan Bread?? On the menu there was written 'Plain Naan Bread & Garlic Naan Bread' i think it had to be 'NON' bread since no Naan Bread was on the buffet! When it comes to Beef/ Chicken/ Lamb, the proportion of Meat vs Sauce was 1:10!!!! Pus no refill of dishes! literally we were fishing for meat! Never Again!!! W e used to Love Sharma but unfortunately the Buffet is a total RIP OFF!!!!
The food and drinks were splendid and we really did enjoy our time there :) we were placed close to the door, so inevitably, we felt watched and people were coming in all the time making us feel uncomfortable... But other than that the atmosphere was great. With regards to the value for money, if you're going without the offer, I personally feel that it is a bit overbudget - again - this is a personal opinion for a person who is still studying... Other than that most of the service was great and we enjoyed our stay there!!! :)
Everything was bad
Always enjoy eating at Sharma. Very good food and service as always
Good customer service and good food quality, with voucher is worth it but without voucher is quite pricey! However you need to reduce the price on nan bread
I had visited Sharma in Mdina time ago and it was an experience. Food was great, service was good and there was a general positive feeling. But I must say last Friday it was the contrary at Portonaso. We were encouraged by waiter to choose the buffet which I am not a huge fan since I am a pesce-vegetarian and I always find limited food choice and I prefer to go for the menu. But anyways apart from the soup was finished and we had another choice, the fritters tasted like frozen veg was used. Same with the begetable stew. They had spices yes but thats it no flavour. The chicken choice serving bowls were empty and only sauces were at the bottom and when we asked the waiter he got some like 6 bite size chicken pieces. And not mentioning dessert. We opted for the ones ‘on the menu’ since there were only a few pieces of coconut polenta left and some few pieces of melons. It was suppose to be a birthday celebration of one of my friends but she was very disappointed, we all were to be honest. Such a pity.
The food was amazing. The staff seemed less happy though with our presence.
Good food, but very expensive
Good value for money. Bought it from deal today.
Not my first time and surely not my last. Great Service & Food. Value for money. Definitely recommended for all those Indian & Arabic cuisine lovers.
Food was good but service was unbelievable poor! Although we went at a not busy hour , the unwelcome feeling was everywhere . We asked three times for extra drinks and no one came back to us. Smile is an unknown word at your restaurant and you should really take care of it ! Although food was good we will not come back for sure !
Bon restaurant avec service et cadre agreable
Very good restaurant. Though slightly overpriced for the portions offered.
Service was very good, with staff very nice and helpful. We had the deal so the value was excellent. The food was delicious!
Thank you for the lovely evening!
Beautiful location and excellent food.
