Like everyone i too was attracted by the Mughal's cook legacy in Karim's kitchen. I should say i wasnt disappointed. Kebab's - The Best. Tasted Best Mutton Here. Tandoor chicken was marinated perfectly. Mutton Burra was smoked to perfection. But THeir Biriyani not the Best, having hailed from sothern India tasted best of Nawab's Biriyani to which Karims couldnt match up.

Calorie conscious individuals and perfectionist stay away from this as the area where its situated is dingy. and you may be sharing seats with strangers. Neverthless, Food is karims Business and they do it great.

It was utter dissappointment. I had been listening to stories about Kebabs melting in your mouth, Biryanis fragrant and delicious and Meat dishes which were cooked for the Mughal Emperors.

The walk from Chandni chowk to Karim's through crowded streets, unhygenic paths and surroundings brought me to the door of Karmi's. I had been dreaming of the day, I would dare to visit this place to taste the dishes which was otherwise only for the Mughal Emperors.

I ordered Mutton Biryani, Seekh Kebab and Chicken Tikka. When the dishes arrived I was thrilled, but as I started eating there was utter disappointment.
The food was just average and there are many places in Delhi & Hyderabad quite approchable and hygenic where much better food is available.
Then why all the Hype? Its strange the Mughal Emperors had such poor taste?

The best biriany I ever had. It was hot but extremely tasty. The food was freshly cooked; that means it may take some time. For desert we had Kulfi ice. It was also super. And do not forget to drink Jal-Jeera; it will help you digesting all the heavy food you eat at Karims.

One of the worst restaurant. Typical food who floats in claimed ghee (Animal's fat). It is worst experience compared to its publicity & levels claimed.
