This was my first time here... have been to the original Karim's at Jama Masjid many a times. I guess they all taste the same these days. Over the years, they have become more commercialised and losing the authentic touch which they one had. Nevertheless, it still beats lot of other restaurants. And I will go back again. Be prepared...

This is marvelous! So marvelous that I don't know where I should start from! I especially appreciate the adventurous route to the restaurant. After a walk in a filthy but extraordinary road through a small Muslim quarter , an old building will come in sight ( Forgive the filth, it is ordinary in India ). Just get inside and enjoy... More

I've been visiting karim's since childhood. Every trip to delhi was incomplete without karim's. Chicken Burra, brain curry, seekh kababs, chicken jahangiri are some of the dishes which are at their best. I usually prefer going to the jama masjid branch. This time I went to d hazrat nizamuddin 's branch. The food was okay but chicken Burra was a... More

I am a great fan of karim's for last 20 years. Previously I use to visit main outlet at jama masjid, but now nizamuddin is near to me. I must have visited this outlet atleast 12-15 times over last 5 years & seeing gradual deterioration of quality of food. There curries are loaded with fat so usually I tend to... More

Best Tadoori items available. Right from Malai Tikka to Mutton Burrah to Tandoori Raan to Tandoori Baqra. Yes you read it right a full Baqra (Goat) served as a full one pc in a large traditional Indian plate filled with Rice, Roasted chicken, Boiled Egg and Dry fruits. Good enough to serve 10-12 person. Apart from this Karim's roll are... More

We travelled across town to eat at this very well known eatery . We thought at first we had come to the wrong restaurant as it was almost deserted but it soon filled up to the extent of there being a large queue. There is some style to the dining room but it is rather faded. As to the food... More

We had our lunch here with our whole family and it was so awesome. We had taken kacchi biriyani , nan and kebab. all of them are awesome and finger licking. I should suggest everyone who wants to visit Delhi should try out this restaurant because it is one of the famous restaurant in Delhi.

I noted that this Karim's at Nizammudin in New Delhi has been reviewed by many who actually visited the original Karim's in Jama Masjid in Old Delhi. Anyway, I am putting forward my review for Karim's Nizammudin to be accurate. In my effort to break a record of sorts by visiting 'all the Karim's' within couple of months, this was... More
