I am so excited to write this review. I finally had the chance to go to Sharma’s Kitchen on Saturday. I’d read about it when they opened in the Journal and Courier, but the night I picked to try them out they were closed. I didn’t really know what to expect, but we ventured out Saturday night and arrived around 6:45 or so.
And the place was packed! I could not believe it was so busy. The entire main dining area was full, so we were ushered into a second dining area with large tables. It was fine, but we were offered repeated apologies about being put in this room. Apparently you can’t hear the music in there. Still, it was fine, I didn’t have a problem with it and if the biggest complaint was that we weren’t sitting elbow to elbow with other people, then that’s okay with me.
Upon being seated, our drink order was taken and then we were asked what kind of bread we wanted with the buffet. You can get your choice of Naan with your meal: regular, garlic, or spicy. This is included with your buffet cost, which is awesome. I get so tired of having to pay extra for bread. Then we were asked if we wanted chicken kabobs. I’d never been asked that at an Indian restaurant before, but before we could answer, she explained that it came with your buffet. Well, okay then, send in the kabobs!
We got up to fill our plates at the buffet. It had a decent selection, and everything I tried was delicious. I can’t tell you what everything was; I just don’t remember. I made a point to try a little of everything and I enjoyed it all. Not long after we sat down our Naan came to the table, and it was hands down the best Indian bread I’ve ever had. It was just really fresh and warm. So good! Next came a sizzling platter of chicken kabobs. It was on a fajita plate, chicken and onions sizzling. Hot chicken and onions? I love it!
During dinner, we were constantly attended. We never had a dirty plate left on our table, our water glasses were constantly refilled, and someone was frequently checking to see if we needed anything. Not in an annoying in your face way either, in a very pleasant way. They knew we were there and they were there if we needed anything.
Overall, I was extremely pleased with my meal at Sharma’s Kitchen and will definitely go again. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the price was really good too.
Kid Friendly: Yes, so long as your kids like Indian food. Kid friendly, but not exactly every child’s cup of tea.
Price: Very affordable – for two at the evening buffet we paid something like $22.
