Delicious Meals

Delicious meats, kebabs, curries and tandoori roti. The tandoori roti is so fresh and good, you can eat it without any kebabs or curries. Rice dishes are not their strength. Curries are quite oily and we prefer draining the oil in another empty dish before eating. Location can be a problem as this... read more

An excellent restaurant near jama masjid offering mouth watering non veg items including tandoori. The butter chicken afghani chicken with khaboos are worth Trying. The chicken mutton tikkas are also worth specialy in rumali roti rolls.

The approach to the restaurant just opposite the Jumma Masjid is very congested . It is better to go after 10 pm. The mughlai dishes were quite up the mark but the tandoori roti was just awesome.

Went in hunt of this restaurant in Old Delhi, was quite easy to find actually. Went abt 2pm and thank god it was not that crowded. I was expecting to have the best briyani ever, but I was quite disappointed. Rice was too soft and not grainy. The Korma and kebab made up for it however. You can probably get... More

I was karim customer when I was just 15 years old.. but unfortunately the taste has been changed...the famous chicken barra and tikka lost the richness of taste ..now it is just ok!! All other karim's branch have different taste..try only authentic karim near jama masjid!!

The quality of the entire menu has degraded terribly since past few years. Recent experience (April 2015) was very average and mild. Biryani and burra have lost their charm and are nomore enjoyable.

I revisited the original Karims in Jama Masjid Old Delhi after a decade. Karims was packed to the rafters which is routine as is sharing a table. But the wait wasn't annoyingly long..i guess you must pay a small price for fame. The ambience was basic(nothing changed) but the food was generally disappointing with a few exceptions. We tried the... More

After visiting the Jama Masjid Mosque we asked locals for directions to the restaurant and they easily pointed us in the right direction. The place is located in a patio and only the sign is visible from the street. There is a main room and an upstairs terrace seating. There is a steady flow of guests. This place is very... More
