Middle Eastern
Since its opening in October of 2013, Sarma has been Somerville's go-to neighborhood spot for Middle-Eastern and Eastern-Mediterranean inspired cuisine. Here, Chef/Co-Owner Cassie Piuma serves up casual & carefully constructed small plates that pack in bold flavors and highlight Piuma's exquisite culinary command of spices, textures, and colors. Sarma's bar opens daily at 5 PM- drop by to try one of our house cocktails, or to sample our range of craft beers and eclectic wines. Walk-ins are always welcome and are greeted on a first-come first-served basis. Please note, reservations are highly encouraged. Also, don't forget that Sarma offers a late night menu option Sunday-Thursday at starting at 10 PM, and Friday & Saturday starting at 11 PM.

    We liked the service and ambiance. Drinks were creative. Some of the small plate items were quite good. But the rest had a cacophony of flavors that did not work well. Some dishes were too sour. Main entrees took a long time to arrive so several people in our party had finished while others were waiting. Not many options for dessert.

    The food is fantastic. We have never had a bad dish and each one tasted like it was just prepared especially for us. Our waiter was a little grumpy, though, when we asked about the special plates that are brought around. We were also informed that there was already a reservation for our table at 8:00 and we needed to be gone by then.

    Wow! I now know why it's so difficult to get a reservation. Sarma is really special with very unusual, absolutely delicious food. Every dish was a surprise, every dish was beautifully prepared and unique. I can't wait to go back.

    Sarma is our go to celebration spot and is always incredible with their selection. Love the rotating menu that plays on seasonal foods & the incredible wine list.

    This was our second time at Sarma's. Everything was very good but not as outstanding as our first time. I think this has to do with the Waitresses recommendations. We ordered different things this time and they weren't as "wow" as the first time but still very good.
