Best Seekh Kebabs are served here in India --- Now the seating is also reasonably ok -- but you have to order rumali roti from outside as they give Khamiri roti --- Butter Chicken is typically very tasty --- Biriyani is ok

One of the best place which has maintained its name. My trip to national capital is not complete without eating there. Little crowded but worth waiting if you are fond of mughlai food.

If you are near Jama Masjid area then Karim's is exactly opposite to Gate 1 of the masjid. Like most of the food lovers I also heard a lot about this food joint.

I was totally disappointed by the dramatic fall in flavour of the legendary KARIM's. Now go only for the Namesake!!! Don't expect to get the feeling of the Mughlai culinary Excellence.

I always recommend this place to all my friends and business associates who are big time non vegetarian foodies. The jama masjid outlet is the one to go for. Don't go anywhere else...

The food is still pretty awesome. Lovely briyani and the gravy dishes. The kebabs are too good. The establishment needs to be spruced up. It needs some spit & polish and refurbishment desperately. Missed the payas this time.
