Located half a km away from chawri bazar metro station, opposite to Jama Masjid. The hype was completely different from the experience. The kebabs were the best on offer. The tandoori rotis are sumptuous. Chicken jahangiri & Burra were okayish. Please abstain from ordering any biryani-the worst u can have. Overall,a big let-down. Would advice a visit just once, worthwhile... More

The difficult part of Karim experience is reaching Gali Kababian. This difficulty is soon forgotten when the aromas of Mughlai food greet you. The same aromas distracthied the great Mughals from their duties towards their realm and drew them towards the dastarkhwan. The food is delightfully medieval and the recipes remain unchanged over the years. The Kormas, Stews and the... More

Getting there is difficult a rikshaw probably best way to get there . Very ordinary ambience but this place has its own charm . A must visit if you are willing to visit dirty crowded... More

very good food but a bit expensive!!!! The taste is very unique but the mutton dishes were dissapointing because you hardly get any meat rather you get only bones!!! The rotis/Indian bread are very expensive compared to other places. It's very difficult to get there because of the huge traffic jam in Delhi. To resume very good food , very... More
