Karim’s

Top choice mughlai in Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad)

Down a narrow alley off a lane leading south from Jama Masjid, Karim’s has been delighting carnivores since 1913. Expect meaty Mughlai treats such as mutton burrah (marinated chops), delicious mutton Mughlai, and the breakfast mutton-and-bread combo nahari. Numerous branches, including at Nizamuddin West, but this no-frills, multiroomed courtyard location is the oldest and best.
