Unfortunately the service is really bad. Restaurant is disorganized, it's a pity because it could be so much more efficient

I came here yesterday with my partner for his birthday and the food was out of this world. Any Indian restaurant in England can't compare to this one. Ambience is loved. It's more suited for couples. I loved the person playing the harp in the background. I may have to comeback again before I leave Malta. I definitely recommend this... More

We visited last Friday with our office colleagues and their partners. The restaurant was fully booked with several large tables in the centre making it difficult for people to move. We had booked our table around 12 days in advance and ended up squashed. We had to wait a long time for our food to arrive A few of us... More

We went in a not busy day/time and the service was good and the food tasty. I would recommend. I don't know If it's the same in a busy day. But I had a expensive dish for the taste, so in my opinion the cost/benefit is not so worth it for the single dishes.

To start off with the restaurant was overcrowded, if it is in accordance to permits, I would like to know what the health and safety standards are, as a successful fire exit would be impossible. Too many people stuffed in this restaurant, you can not even move out of your seat at liberty. Tables are placed within the passageways. The... More

We went there as a group of 13 last Friday. Not only did they squash us on the table since they did not have enough space to accomodate us although we had booked 2 weeks before. The starters took 2 hours to come, since they forgot us. Also my wife took king prawn curry and she had to go diving... More

Last Thursday 9th February, together with my friends (13 in total) visited Sharma. From first glance, one could clearly see that the place was overcrowded. In fact there where tables setup in the passage ways between other tables, not to mention that the seating too was crammed! The food was average or below and we were not impressed by either... More

Sharma is built into the old city wall, the food excellent but service a little slow. Wrap up warm in the winter and refuse to sit near the stairs...it can be cold!

Just came back from Sharma with my friends, and we will for sure NEVER VISIT THIS RESTAURANT AGAIN....And we will make sure to not recommend it to others either. Upon my arrival, there was no host to greet us, or to show us to our table. We were pointed to the direction of the bar, where I had to search... More
