The location is very dirty,After a long search we found the place. The place was little bit odd but the food was really good & worth. Waiters were very unkind and didn't help us in selecting of the dishes.

First of all this is not the place to visit if you're looking for a chilled out romantic meal, you'll be placed anywhere where there's space for whatever number of people you are - so you'll eat with a bunch of strangers. It worked well, but it depending on where you were seated it could be a bit of struggle... More

To reach this restaurant you have to walk through a crowded and chaotic street of Old Delhi: an adventure in itself!!! The place is quite special, there are an open kitchen (you can see how food is cooked) and tables distributed in different rooms. The menu is basic and difficult to understand, choose food is like playing the lottery! Waiters... More

Karim’s, one of the most mentioned restaurants in Delhi is the easiest to miss. You can walk right past it in that busy street and never notice. Here is a clue: on the main street there is restaurants named Jawahar and right next to it a narrow little lane that leads to Karim’s. It’s always to easier to ask someone,... More

I really don't know where to start, their cautiously made kababs, perfect nans(breads), mouth watering and finger licking tasty side dishes are just awesome, a must try for all meat lovers. Though I personally don't like their Byriani (I prefer Awadhi style, which is followed in Kolkata). Personal favorite Chicken burra, sheekh kababs, mutton quorma, mutton stew, plain roti

I went for lunch after a dehydrating visit to jama masjid and Chadni chowk. Most of customers were tourists or first time visitors due to media hype. This restaurant is quite famous. Well it's one for the non veg and more for the not so diet conscious meat eaters. I had the famous mutton korma. Taste is really good. Even... More

We went to this restaurant with a lot of expectations. Ordered Biryani, Curry, Kebabs and Dessert. Kebabs were great, but other dishes were very average.
