Large menu with a good variety of tapas-style dishes. Plenty of good options whether you like veggie, meat, fish, etc.
Highly recommend the lamb köfte sliders and champagne mango shirazi from the standard menu. They also bring around nightly specials throughout the meal that you can elect to try (ranging from ~$8-15 depending on what it is). We have really enjoyed those, with our favorite being the sesame fried chicken. Be sure to save room for dessert!
Great meal, will definitely be come back! You could probably order just a couple plates at a time. They come out fast and that would allow you to try the chef's specials.
so many unique options, execution was a bit off.. Some dishes just needed a touch of salt
to balance while others were overly salted, ie: the trout, which was very dry and salty. Stand outs were the snap peas, bright flavors, seasonal and balanced and the lentil nachos were a hit.
I had an extremely disappointing visit to Sarma after waiting almost three months to find a reservation that worked for us. The service was possibly the worst I have ever had. Not once did the waiter ask how we were enjoying our meals, recommend something to order, or do anything to make us feel like we were an appreciated patron. On top of this, it was one of my guests birthday's and instead of keeping it a surprise he said I know its your birthday when we sat down and then threw a candle with no desert at her to end the night. Many better places in the area if they do not learn to train their staff better. When we asked for the manager he did not even follow through.
Very small portion size ! My food was very salty, ordered cauliflower dish and got broccoli and it was burned. Other than that it was good.
Great meal but table wasn’t ready for our reservation time
Fantastic! Ever dish was delicious.
This is the best food in Boston. Lots of choices for vegetarians.
Sarma is always a favorite, the food is inventive and memorable. Our latest visit was an off night, with some of the most disinterested service I've come across at this level of restaurant.
Amazing dinner with 6 dishes, all with incredible flavor and thoughtful presentation.
Too salty for most dishes
Tables need a cloth
Amazing flavor! I am difficult to impress, and I was impressed. The lamb sliders may have been my favorite. My only criticism is the seating can be uncomfortable.
Great food. Surprisingly poor service attention and enthusiasm. Would come back in a heartbeat.
One of a kind very creative food
Just had another great meal at Sarma this weekend. Wonderful spices, terrific food, and they've added at least one new wine that was very good--- AND not that expensive, too!
Awesome and tasty as always ! Our favorite place in town.
Fantastic as always! Make sure you leave room for the specials!!
One of the best restaurants in Boston. Sometimes tricky to find parking - but what place in the Boston area isn't? Just allow time for finding parking. You won't regret it!!
Took my friend out to experience how the wonders of Sarma work. He was pleasantly surprised by EVERYTHING we ordered. Funny, even the slightest negative opinion came off as a vague compliment.
He said, “Everything was mad bomb. I probably wouldn’t order the Pumpkin Fritters again but that just simply means I didn’t enjoy it as much as everything else” Nearly perfect is how I would describe Sarma. Service could be fractionally better.
Excellent food and service. We ordered a little too much ( it’s so easy to do it, everything in the menu sounds so good!) but we finished everything. Even the fried calamari is a different experience ...
Very similar to tapas places with small dishes allowing you to sample a wide variety of innovations and combinations. In addition, a server will come around with something not on menu for you to try if you decide to purchase. Some drinks on menu have WAY TOO MUCH ice, so ask for less ice.
We went to visit Boston, New Haven and New York for a few days and Sarma was the best food experience we’ve had this trip so far... small bites, amazing flavors, rich and complex mix of textures, ingredients and again: the flavors... totally worth exploring
Sarma was wonderful, as always. We has several of the newer items on the ever-changing menu, and they were great.
great food, really disrespectful and rude waitress. rolled her eyes at us even
Very good although very surprising that foo tapas dining they did not refresh with clean plates during the meal. They should also tell you what “dim sum” they are going to be bringing to help decide on what to order. The pacing of the dished was a little off- too fast out of the kitchen.
We had a fabulous birthday dinner. The food was creative and beautifully presented.
Food was delicious and loved the creativity of the dishes. They added a different interpretation to staple mediterranean and turkish food. I would love to go back to try more items from their small plates menu!
Sarma is the best restaurant in the Boston area. No doubt about it. Every plate is delightfully crafted with the best ingredients. I always bring people from out of town to Sarma - if I can get a reservation!
mg totally lives up to everything everyone has said about this place. I don't think my husband and I will be eating for a couple of days because of how stuffed we were after dinner! We made reservations for a Saturday night, took a chance and showed up about 25 minutes early and were seated right away. Very cool ambiance. Our server was really friendly and everything we ate and drank was delicious. I highly recommend the nachos, hummus, and beef jerky. My husband said the lamb sliders were his favorite. Definitely coming back again.
Everything was so yummy! Great veggie selection. Lovely atmosphere. Save room for the luscious little donuts and French pressed coffee.
Sarma’s food is always exceptional. The decor is fun and the service is very good.
So much flavor! Everything was interesting, and many things were amazing. This was our first visit, and we will definitely return!
Excellent ingredients in all the food and great ambiance.
Enjoyed every bite - I highly recommend this place!
Sarma is my favorite restaurant in the Boston area. Hands down. Drinks. Food. Ambiance. I'm a carnivore but the veggies at Sarma are always my fave meals. :)
Great food, very colorful presentation and good service.
We always love coming to Sarma, and this visit was no different. Some new things on the menu - the salmon ceviche was particular delicious!
Superb restaurant with unique dishes and great food. Nice ambience.
Great food, as always. The pumpkin fritters and corn bread were amazing.
