If you have a couple of hours to spare in the evening and are in the mood for authentic top of the line Mughlai food the n head for this legendary diner. The location and the setting will throw you off your feet but that is more than compensated for the absolutely brilliant food. The Burra Kebab, Sheekh Kebab are... More

Karim is real Mughlai food. The location is ancient but in the heart of old Delhi. You can easily access to the place. It is open till midnight. The way of preparation is real authentic Mughlai style. It was started by great grand fathers of the present owner. You can get the best non vegetarian food here. Although they serve... More

I happen to eat at karims for breakfast during a food tour through old delhi. The food is heavy and full of spices. I had goat meat inside of a thick spicy gravy with buttery nan bread. I thought it was great. However, like in most parts of old delhi, europeans or westerners are challenged by the environment.

I visited Delhi several times but I didn’t get the opportunity to visit the heritage restaurant earlier. So I had a trembling desire to have a dinner in Karim’s. My damad... More

For travellers coming to Delhi Karim's Jama Masjid is a must visit place. Even if you are vegetarian then to see the old charm and aroma of authentic Mughlai food. Roasted items spl Tandoori Raan, Tandoori Bakra, Mutton Burrah are the exclusivity. You must know what to eat at Karim's they are specialised in Tandori items and few old authentic... More

The restaurant is so legendary that the waiters feel like legends themselves at times. But who cares!! Vegetarians should waste their time someplace else and keep the tables vacant for meat lovers. The kababs are to die for. Try mutton burra kabab for sure. The biryani might be a bit over-rated but is in its own league. A must visit... More

If you are a Mughlai food lover, Karim is the place you must visit. They have a great legacy attached to Mughal Kings of Delhi. The food is Mughlai in its real sense. Mutton Barra Kabab, Tandoori Chicken , Seekh Kabab, Mutton and Chicken Korma , Mutton and Chicken Stew are the recommended food items, one must try. Prices are... More

I came here all the way to visit the "Original Karim" Well not at all impressed. The Chicken is tender and apart form that nothing is worth mentioning. Ca skip it. We have better restaurants in Mumbai.

It's purely for Non Veg lovers. The taste & aroma of Chicken is just out of this world. Plus the roomali roti makes it a different experience altogether. Food lovers must visit & try the aroma.
