After a long time went to this place on October 8th for lunch with my family. Took it's signature dish Mutton Nehari and Chicken Kebab with Nun. The taste of every item is nonparallel and consistent as ever before. Though one need to walk through a busy alley to reach this restaurant, but the inside is calm and quiet. Lunch... More

: If you visit /move around Nizamiddin’s Dargah ,at Nizamuddin Karim’s,the exotic north Indian cuisines restaurant, New Delhi, you should have your lunch/dinner at “Karim’s.”Tucked in a corner on your way to the narrow lane heading to Nizamuddin dargah, this place is little difficult to find but worth efforts to find & dine. This non-veg specialist gives you the taste... More

I was really disappointed with the taste of Briyani. May be We have expected a lot or the people Just over-hyped? People from South India expect more Spicy in Briyani. But this Briyani has less Spicy and more Sour in taste. Best Food: Sheek kebab are very Nice Cons: No Parking facilities near by hotel.

Visited this restaurant along with colleagues and enjoyed very delicious dinner. Romali Roti was litter harder, but Naan was quite good. other non-chicken items were of good quality. Neat and clean place for good food, but little expensive

Very ordinary look and feel, but simply great food. It stays in the mind for long. Went with friends, this place offers no class, but memorable Mughlai food. We had Mutton burrah kakabs, Chicken pasanda and Baqarkhani kulcha(bread from the tandoor) and their very special Mutton Biriyani.

With all the Hypes, Reviews, Reputation and Friends's Recommendation, we went out of our way to dine there with high hopes. It was equally disappointing. We ordered an appetizer chicken dish recommended by the wait staff, one chicken dish and one lamb dish for dinner. Acknowledge the Time magazine or the English media, it was not the food we enjoyed... More

Ordered chicken Burra, chicken Jehangiri, one more chicken curry and chicken briyani. They took approximately 40 mins to deliver. We liked Chicken Burra but others are disappointed. Both curry's frozen while eating and It seems they added dalda instead of oil. Chicken briyani is too bland and nothing to comment great about it. Overall, it's highly disappointed and not value...
