“Awesome food”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

At this place you can get the rich and tasty food at a very decent price. Roaming on the streets in this area can really get you tired. Best way.. hire a cycle rickshaw and after you are tired and hungry do visit Karims. It very famous and all will know its location. And just feast on the kebabs and rich cashew based curries which are absolutely mouth watering. Food may not be cheap but its well worth the price. A taste that has come through with a lot of experience.

“Yummiest non veg at lowest price”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

I went to Karim's near jama masjid with me friends for a dinner party. We were 4 guys and had sufficient amount of food for ourselves. Chicken Barra and seekh kebabs were the best i ve had. Must go place for frends especially college goers as its not heavy on pocket. Location though may be an issue for few. There is a small passage whcih leads to the shop or should i say shops..coz every side u see in that narrow passage is a different shop that belongs to them only and each one is having as much seating capacity as possible in that area. Still the atmosphere is very lively and food is obviously ,awesome. Cost/person max 400.

“Atmospheric, but not cheap”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The Karims in old Dehli is in a tiny courtyard near the masjid Jamek. When you enter the courtyard there are several Karims ... Not sure if they are all part of the same restaurant. We chose one that looked authentic and they had a plaque on the wall, stating as much. We had a 1/2 chicken curry, palak paneer, two nanas and a small serve of steamed rice plus two cokes. It cost a high 1200 rupees. This was one of the most expensive meals we've had in India. It was tasty but highly over rated. Walked away disappointed.

“Look no further for Mughlai Food”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Excellent Mughlai food. My favourites are shami kabab, chicken korma, mutton keema, sheermal, firni. Only eat if you can digest rich and spicy food. The Karim's in Nizammudin and Lajpat Nagar are also good.
