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!
Great food and very peaceful atmosphere! Will defenitely visit again
Dahl soup and chicken tandoori the best I ever tasted. The other buffet dishes normal but great value for money especially on a Friday or Saturday evening before 9pm.
It’s good food, nice atmosphere and peaceful . I would certainly come again soon.
service sometimes a bit slow high prices but good quality
Food is always great, love coming here every know and then
Very nice food and great service in a lovely setting. I highly recommend this place for Indian food and Arabian dishes. Easy parking on level - 5 which is a great help for me and my wife who uses a wheelchair.
Very well served. Food was amazing and we will definitely visit again.
I’ve been to Sharma many times, but the last two visits the food was literally left to desire. I ordered the Falafel as starter and it literally tasted like deep fried food and I’ve asked for the accompany yogurt to be changed as it was watery and tasteless. The curries where fine but the Ruzz bel Kultah was another failure, no almonds and tasteless. I’m afraid there better Indian options available at the moment and it’s a pity as we really enjoyed visiting and ordering take away.
Food was incredible and enjoyed in a beautiful setting.
The staff was not polite enough.
Why you call this restaurant as indian restaurant when you don't even have a single type of daal ? It's bit strange.
A really nice spot beside the water in Portomaso. The service was very slow and many people were sat with menus - very few seemed to be eating. But when we eventually got served the food was tasty. Good value for money considering the location!
not the first time and it's was not the last one to be there
Very good ethnic restaurant - seating is a bit cramped outside, and table cloth was burnt - more than that overall was a good evening.
Very good and professional service
Wonderful atmosphere. Great efficient service and delicious food.
Amazing! Love dining at Sharma. Will definitely be back soon.
Food was very good! One of the waiters needs to learn how to smile a little bit more... (no not the foreigners... he was a local)
The best Indian restaurant on the island, situated in a very beautiful location. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is great and the service offered by the staff is just perfect. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for all the great qualities but most of all for anyone that wants to enjoy delicious Indian food.
I really was pleasd and sure would recommended.
First time we have visited the restaurant, we had the buffet and would highly recommend it. Only one slight moan, and that the food could be a bit hotter.
