Awesome Mughlai Food

Situated near the Jama Masjid in old Delhi, the place is almost always crowded. Karim's at Jama Masjid is still the best amongst all the other franchisee they have around Delhi. For a person who loves non veg cuisine, this is a must try out restaurant. The Mutton Burra and rotis are awesome and one... read more

They are the best in traditional Mughlai food; hot, spicy and fresh. This place being in the Mall slightly expensive than their original location; but the quality is great. Cannot miss this place if I am around

Very well known in New Delhi. In fact, its the most popular restaurant in Delhi, and of course the oldest, serving authentic indian food since 1913. A must when visiting Delhi.

I tried Karims's nehru metro station branch and I found the food you got for money you spent is expensive and average.

When it comes to their specialties- burra kebab and ghost currie with the fluffy tandoori roti- this gem of a place is unbeatable. I don't know what these guys put in their food, but it takes me to heaven every time. The phirni is a little disappointing. Very affordable, lots of outlets all over Delhi. Don't need to get to...

Travel in time through narrow alleys of Chandni Chowk to this famous restaurant where meat starved people can have a taste of the original kebabs of Delhi. The place is congested and busy and worth a visit if one is not too particular about hygiene but love great food.

I used to love the food here and still do. The only issue with this Karim's is the approach. It's a little claustrophobic getting there but the anticipation of the food makes it an interesting walk in this lane. So Karim's churns out some really great stuff. One being the haleem, which is cooked to precision and the meaty chunks... More
