Welcome to Sharma

Welcome to Sharma Ethnic Cuisines, a new restaurant in Mdina by the creator of the original Shisha World Cuisine. We offer an eclectic mix of traditional cuisines from India, North Africa and the Mediterranean.

Sharma's decor is inspired by the ancient spice trading route which used to run from India, through the Middle East, and lead to North Africa and the Mediterranean. Interaction between these different cultures over the centuries influenced their respective cuisines and customs, which have evolved into those we are accustomed to today.

At Sharma we try to offer something more than just food and drink. We trust that the authentic presentation of the various cuisines on offer will stimulate your senses and most of all, we hope that your visit will turn out to be a memorable experience!

Housed in Casa Magazzini, the restaurant also boasts a large terrace on top of the bastions, which is great for just having a drink during the day or a romantic meal in the evening. Take the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views of the valley between Rabat and Mtarfa, or just take in the marvellous sunset.


We are open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm and all week in the evenings from 6.30pm onwards. Booking is advised. Children aged 7 years and over please. For more information about our restaurant feel free to get in touch, either by phone on 2145 3817 or 9999 6315, via email at info@sharma.com.mt, or find us on Facebook.
