Having rickshawed through the market to find Karim's, I ordered the "famous" buttered chicken. What a disappointment. The chicken consisted of a leg and a few wings of a very skinny bird, so hardly any meat. I normally only praise places, but this is a real let down aimed at ripping off tourists. I was also shocked to see the... More

It's a whole in the wall but highly reviewed so we decided it was safe. It did not disappoint. The food was very good. Not the best we've had in India, but you can't beat the price. It was incredibly cheap so the value is great. The chicken curry over rice was yummy. Their claim to fame is that they're... More

You shouldn't order most of the menu here - stick to the mutton. This super famous, classic moghal restaurants is a must stop in Old Day. A trip isn't complete without it.

From a fifth or sixth generation restaurant associated with Mughal leadership? Barbaric. The goat is tender. The vegetarian fare is tantalizing. It's a bro world, girls. The house was full and it was Chantal & me holding the yin. Great experience. It is not fine-dining, but cuisine created overs eons of time. richly flavored, time consuming to prepare and gratifying,... More

Once upon a time there was a restaurant named Karims. I say this only because the tastes are not good comparing to what I had a few years back. Kacchi lacks meat and it’s very oily. Same goes for the chicken biryani. The only item that remains same is the “BUTTER CHICKEN”. The price is RS 450 but it’s worth... More

MUTTON SEEKH KEBABS are to DIE for.. What an amazing consistency, taste and quality of Seekh Kebabs. I have never had anything better than this. Some of their dishes like Korma, Bhuna are trademark with Roti. Consistency in taste, service and experience is the Key.... Good arrangement for Families also.
