I tried different dishes of karims like biriyani,tandoori chicken,afgani chicken,tandoori roti,missi rori,rogan josh etc.Their tandoori chicken and tandoori roti is good,but their biriyani is pathetic.There is no masala in biriyani and cost is almost 480 per plate????You wil get better biriyani in any roadside dhaba... All the items are too costly and the amount is not that great...

The taste of the food here is good without a doubt but you can get the same quality and taste in other Karim's which are located in other parts of Delhi and have much better service for instance the Karim at Green Park or India Islamic Cultural Centre. For us a part of the experience in eating out is about... More

it is famous for its non veg food, taste is so good, that I can not express in writing. I love to go there when I want to eat something yummy. I love Karim's Sheermal and mutton gravy items with tandoori roti.

The original Karim's, (and to some extent the chain locations), is one of my favorite restaurants in all my years of traveling in India!

Another favorite is their naan, which is unique... More

The location is very dirty,After a long search we found the place. The place was little bit odd but the food was really good & worth. Waiters were very unkind and didn't help us in selecting of the dishes.
