“Good Mughlai food”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Good place to go to when the Mughlai food craving attacks you! It's right next to the Jama Masjid so not hard to find at all, and it's as good as the nearby more famous Kareem's. We had delicious Chicken Changhezi with hot fluffy tandoori rotis- quite a delight! (I did suffer from a mild Delhi belly later, but not sure if the spicy chicken dish was to blame). It's quite spacious but still choc a bloc with customers on a Sunday....you may have to wait your turn to be seated. You may even end up sharing the table with strangers, but nobody minds here. Don't expect amazing service, but do expect lip smacking food :)

“Great place for lunch in Old Delhi”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

As we had a good taste of mughal cuisine in Karim's in our first time in Delhi, we wanted to try his most direct competitor and we weren't let down: the mutton kebabs and chicken dishes were delicious, as well as the bread, hot from the oven kept in the restaurant entrance. There's no alcohol and the other beverages are served almost room temperature, but the atmosphere is vibrant, lots of families and groups.

“AL Jawahar - Nice 'Mughlai' Restaurant !!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

The restaurant is in the heart of new delhi and next to Jama Masjid. The atmosphere is good, and cleanliness will be major affecting factor, that overshadow the ambience of the restaurant. From the Menu,mutton seekh kabab & changezi chicken is amazing, Its a Must Visit place for Foodies.
Simply enjoyed our meal..!!!

“The ULTIMATE taste of royal mughlai cuisine”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

The place is in the heart of delhi and is great place to have non-veg food. There are so many mouth watering dishes all prepared using the original recipes preserved since centuries. The daal gosht is amazing, so is mutton seekh kabab, changezi chicken, kadhai gosht, kadhai chicken, and so many other dishes. Have a neat and tidy separate place upstairs just for Families to sit. Must visit place for food lovers. And one more thing, some of the dishes are better in taste than Karims so do compare and you'll be amazed. Bon Appetite.

“restaurant”
Reviewed October 29, 2010

Hi,
The restaurant is located opposite to jama masjid gate no 1. It provides tasty food and is specialised in mughlai dishes. It is well built and has good staff to serve. You get stuffs like sheermal chicken burra etc which is hardly available outside delhi
