A great place to taste the Mughlai dishes. Specially Mutton Qurma, Kabab and Tondoori. The surrounding of the restaurant is not clean but this place is a must stop to taste the delicious dishes.

While there are routine lists that put Karim's and Al Jawahar at the top of kebab, qorma restaurants in Delhi, I feel that reputation has taken precedence over quality. We tried mutton stew, keema, mutton barra and tandoori raan. Except the barra, everything else was average. The raan was especially disappointing and game (try Punjabi By Nature's version or the...

Place is not clean, the way people eat food and throw the waste on the floor is not a good thing.Spoils the overall ambience. Food is quite good.

When I'm going to Al-Jawahar, I always have mutton stew. The food quality is good. The service and all is good too. Moreover, the sitting space is also adequate. I find the place quite hot during summer time even though they have air conditioners. I just find the price for few of the menu items as little over the limit.

Kabuli roti and chicken changezi is absolute delight. The ambiance is very shoddy and sitting is dingy but food is good.

Though it's next door neighbor Karim's is more famous, I found the food better tasting here. The Sheermal, Shami and Sheek kebab are a must have. Dal gosht was surprisingly good, as was the Chicken stew. To end it all, try the phirni in a traditional clay bowl. Delicious!
