Good food

Its not so good restaurant till you have the first bite of your food. Biryani and amazing rolls are superb to eat. My business friends loved the kababs and they told me they have not tasted this kind of kabas any other place.

Even though, buryani not that good, the rest were delicious. Try any Masala and bread, you won't be disappointed. Their 15 branch speaks about it, also it is easy to reach in any part of Delhi and by metro.

Many had told me that it was over-hyped and I would frequent the other options of Al Jawahar etc. But this Fridays sporadic visit was an eye opener. I was curious why so many foreigners and many from Middle East countries are seen only at KARIM's. Well the main reason is that it is very hygienic food and you won't... More

If you can find it then, navigate your way through the teeming crowds, this is as authentic as it gets. Simple, well cooked dishes prepared the way they have been for 100 years+, quick service (no booze) and a respite from the chaos outside make this an experience to try.

I did very much enjoy this meal, I had the mutton mughlai and it was yummy. However the naan was the shining star of the whole meal

It was my first visit to this place and got to admit its worth a visit. Mouth watering mutton seekh kebabs are a must try. The place is little clumsy and a struggle to reach during day time due to the heat .

I visit Karim's every time I visit Delhi but this is my first review. The journey through chaotic Juma Masjid Area, small crowded lanes is part of the experience. The restaurant itself is a maze of rooms but waiters running up and down. In spite of its ancestry and reputation do not expect a fine dining experience. The service is... More

A Clustered joint, chaos & heat ( Summer visit ) but non the less excellent food. Perfect blend of spices. Good range of dishes. Red meat dishes were well cooked. If visiting with family, one need to have the patience to wait to get a decent place to sit in the family area. But wouldn't recommend to take your family... More

If you are in Delhi you must visit this restaurant. The jahangiri is one of my favourite curries. We went to the karims at jama masjid and karol bagh and both were excellent but the one near jama masjid just had all the charm to go with it.
