Karim is overrated. Yep, you will see as soon as you see the entrance. You might think that your GPS wavered off, your friends are having a great laugh at your behest or maybe the Delhi heat is giving you illusions. Their is a small kitchen right in front of you, making the 9-10 curries they serve at Karim's. If... More

Strongly recommended if you around Old Delhi/Jama Masjid and like meat curries/kebabs. The place is not easy to find, ask locals for directions.

Located in the heart of Chandni Chowk, the restaurant offers delicious non-veg cuisines. Bit congested and clammy, the restaurant flaunts to offer high-quality non-veg items with real taste… and I must say they are not wrong in their claiming… though, I feel the taste is good, the quantity is bit less in comparison to price. Overall nice experience!!!

we were told to visit this restaurant as it is famous for its kebab. I am not sure of the Kebab but their biryani was horrible - the portions are too small and there is no tea or coffee served.

Simply one of the best meals I have ever had. Let alone in India. We were advised to come here & had no idea what to expect. When the tuk tuk driver stopped in the middle of old Delhi, I must admit-even as a seasoned traveler, my heart stopped at the sight of the dingy alley where this supposed great... More

Wow...how to start this review ? My wife and I were STARVING, so around the red fort we asked our Ho Ho bus dude to recommend us a good non veg option, he didn't even hesitate...KARIM'S he said, loud and clear. Walking distance from the fort, really, but very tricky if you haven't been there before...so we took a rickshaw... More

One of the best non veg dishes are served here. Must try: 1. Tandoori Raan. It takes a bit of time to cook (30 - 45 mins) but trust me every single minute wait is worth it. Please do not rush and force your order early.. infact it is advisable to ask them to take their own time and you... More

The awesome food is served here . You will love non veg food and specialy the local made roti and kheer which is the speciality of this . The price is also reasonable and you will get taste at this location only. If you are non veg lover ,u should try it once. Great food with great price.

The Saagwala was really tasty but the barbecued mutton was a real winner!!!! It was one of our first curries in India and after the many we have had since, definitely one of the best!!!! L&J
