Cheap and good

Cheap and very good food. A bit difficult to get to unless you have GPS. Google map is right on. Watch for big sign on the opposite side of the street pointing you to the short alley it is located at the end of. Not the cleanest place. It is in Old Delhi so you will need a strong disposition... read more

Loved all the meat curries and the overall experience. Communal tables are a great way to dine in foreign places. The roomali rot I was fantastic but I remember the other breads to be too dense. Would highly recommend.

Kebabs that one could die for! Exotic spices and herbs enhance the taste no doubt! Good Non Vegetarian food...truly Indian khana.

Located near Jama masjid, Karim's is a legendary place in Delhi to eat. The mutton sheek kebabs are to die for. they are so yummy. Mutton stew and Chicken jahangiri are worth a try. The tandoori rotis and hot and soft. Must visit place during delhi trip

The first time visit to the restaurant located in narrow lane behind the Mammoth beautiful Jama masjid leads one to the conjusted venue, but once you are inside you feel the smell of delicious nonveg food. The preparation is unique and filled with aroma, very tasty. One must visit this nonveg joint once in life and enjoy good food.

The restaurant is a humble place located in the dingy by lanes near jama masjid however, The kebabs they serve are absolutely mouthwatering. I don't think I have had better kebabs anywhere.
