“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We spent an afternoon on Chandni Chowk and made an excursion to Karims for lunch. The map on the Trip Advisor offline city guide was a bit off, Karims is literally behind the mosque. Great food if you are non-veg, great value and full of locals which I always think is a good sign as a traveller. Well worth it

“Fingerlicious Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Location: In the streets of Purani Delhi near Jama Masjid, when I reach there the smell of food is totally mouth watering for me. We ordered there Mutton korma's, Chicken briyani, Chicken burra and Chapati's.

Food Qaulity:(9/10)

Value for money:(8/10)

“BIG DISSAPONTMENT....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Nothing special about karims...i actually didn't find anything specail.. had a simple lunch there,They say that they are among top restaurants in Asia but when you go into the restaurant they are not even close to any local restaurant.. I had went yesterday with my friends from karnal to delhi(125 km) specially after listen d name & fame of kareem & had a very bad experience....
Food was averege,mutton quorma was less spicy,chicken jahagiri was tasty...

ITS DISGUSTING & KAREEM"S HAS STARTED TO LOOK ONLY FOR THE MONEY RATHER THAN SUSTAINING THE FAME FOR WHICH IT IS KNOWN.. NOT A KARIM'S FAN ANYMORE N WILL NEVER VISIT AGAIN THERE!!!!! ** Stars....

“Legend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

If you are a die hard food lover,then you have to visit karims. Situated in a narrow lane near jama masjid,1st impression is not attractive.But when you have your seat ,welcome to the heaven. You have a large menu to chose from.You can have biryanis , keema, varieties of chicken n mutton .Any thing you order will be a gastronomical delight.Every menu wud be full of spices and oils, but great in taste.As like any other restaurant in the locality only problem is the cleanliness,You wont find .Now when karim is an more than 100 yrs old,and itself a brand, people from every corner of ncr visit to have the taste,they should think to improve cleanliness.Over all its must visit place.

“Karim's at its best...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I always wanted to visit Karims @ Jama Masjid but happen to be there during one of the office fun trip. I relished everything from Chicken Steak to Seekh Kababs & Chicken Roasted. Everything will make you link your fingers again and again. Its a heaven for Non-Veg Lovers. The place and outlook may not appraise you but the food will definitely will.
