Many people raved about this place which built up a expectation of great high standard of cuisine. The place was packed and we entered of course like all others without a reservation. We waited for a table. During the wait we observed some rather untidy servicing and an unkempt tabling . For the volume of people in , the hygiene... More

Karim's carry that tradition which is century old. The taste is same and the quality is maintained over years. The ones who relish non veg should visit it. Whether it is Mutton Seekh Kabab or Qorma, Roomali Roti or Khamiri Roti, Nihari or Stew, you will relish whatever you order. A place must to visit.

Just opposite the well known landmark mosque of India Jama Masjid, the best known Mughlai food is served at Karim's Restaurent. Very recently, We had an extremely tasty lunch of tandoori seekh kabab and mutton burra accompanied by delicious butter naan at Karim's. We followed it with sumptuous Mutton Biryani which was awesome. One should visit this place not for... More

Very good food - some dishes are a bit too oily though. The service is quick but be prepared to wait for more than half an hour for a table.

Karim's is a rightly famous darbah in Old Delhi near the Jama Masjid mosque. They do a range of grilled meats, breads, and gravies served in the old school way. This is traditional Old Delhi without the major risks associated with some of the less reputable darbahs. We had a very tasty lunch of tandoori seekh kabab and mutton burra... More

I visited this place with some of my friends, as usual it was very busy and we need to wait for 15 mins to get our table buy that's worthy if you want to enjoy traditional muglai food. Like- Food, Taste and service. Dis like- crowdy and nearby parking space.

We seen tripadvisor and google and wow we thought this must be awesome. We first tried the mutton biryani and it was so bland. There was literally no meat, just bones. I then decided I couldnt eat it, and ordered a paneer masala type dish. This too was disappointing. Tasted like the sauce was just made of tomato sauce and... More
