“Excellent food with real Indian authentic Taste”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I went to the origional Karim's restaurant in the city old old Delhi near Jamma Masjid, the area is so crowded and i advice not to go there with accompanied Indian friends because you might face trouble moving there with yourself.
I liked the food there, although the restaurant was so crowded and you can expect to have a shared table with other strangers!!!
I have ordered Kebab and tandori chicken, both was very nice taste and the bread was fabulous.

“AVOID AVOID AVOID rubbish food rubbish service”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

most terrible service on earth...the waiters were very non-friendly with some big attitudes,food was one of the worst non-veg i had in my life,this is a over-rated restaurant and a big disaster. I am a punjabi and likes to eat and cook food and had food from all over the world ..please avoid taking pain to go to this terrible restaurant ...AWFUL FOOD AWFUL SERVICE who claimed this to be a "restaurant to visit before you die" that person is insane stupid and doesn't know food taste.
food not only need to be tasty but also should be served properly, neither of this was present.
rubbish food avoid

“Living on a past reputation”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

The biryani is still sort of tasty, but doesn't merit all the ravings about how legendary it was. Less choice cuts of meat (like a very tough neck), cooked till the chicken was dry, and served lukewarm after a long wait. Service here used to be rapid and the food hot and tasty. Not these days I guess?
