From Fiona Caulfield, author of the Love India travel guide series:
“All Dilliwallahs and all tourist guides recommend Karim’s as a ‘must-do’ experience, so whilst on the tourist trail, it is an authentic and good experience. Tucked away in the congested lanes of Old Delhi, getting there is half the fun. Karim’s has been serving traditional Mughlai cuisine since 1913 and is a carnivore’s paradise, selling over 450 kilos of mutton and 1,200 kilos of chicken every day.
“Try the special, which requires a day’s notice and at least 20 friends to help you eat it. The Tandoori bakra is a roasted lamb stuffed with chickens, biryani and eggs, all liberally garnished with cashews and raisins.”
Open daily 7 am to midnight.
