This one is for serious meat-eaters. Karim's is not only famous for being such an old joint but also they have carried it for such a long time with some amazing non-vegetarian stuff. Hidden in the midst of crowded streets surrounding the imposing Jama Masjid, it's a little bit difficult to reach but should be easy if you can get... More

Overpriced average food, rather oily. Definitely not the value that one expects to receive in a famous mugalai food place.

This place is great for Muglai food. I keep coming to this place again and again when ever I am in Delhi. You will enjoy the food.

This place is one of a kind.....you can't forget it once you are there. Food is differently good :-) The tandoori Roti is a Benchmark for other restaurants to match. The kebabs are the best one can ever get anywhere. I repeat that the tandoori Roti is just awesome. When you come out of the restaurant,into the main street, the... More

I always recommend this place to all my friends and business associates who are big time non vegetarian foodies. The jama masjid outlet is the one to go for. Don't go anywhere else...

My appetite becomes double after smelling the Moughlai cuisine & taste buds swells up to taste them. Very tasty & delicious food. Every non-vegetarian in Delhi should visit once in their lifetime here.

Had a very average food, it was too much oily and I guess it was an odd day where u dont get good food at Karims..ordered for chicken burrah for starters and for main course ordered for mutton stew, everything was below Karims standard..among breads keema parantha was ordered which was tasteless..so overall very average..

This place is definitely worth experiencing. The service is not excellent but the food is out of this world. We ordered the mutton curry they are famous for and weren't disappointed. It's the kind of place you shouldn't skip when in Delhi. Definitely check your receipt though as our group was charged for an extra main dish we didn't order.

I hear all sorts of mixed sentiments about Karim's so let me just tell you that this place offers some of the best kabab's, curries, rotis and naan that I've ever tried in Indian cuisine around the world. While the variety of their unique mixed masalas keeps you savoring each dish, Karim's offers a few extra plates like "brain" curry... More

Legendary - the collection in which Karim's appears seems to be perfect, legendary it is. You might not even find it if you go there for the first time, but anyone you ask would know about the place for obvious reasons. You take aleft right next to Al Jawahar in a narrow lane and reach Krim's, it in fact a... More
