Operating for over 100 years in Old Delhi, Karim's is known for the best meat dishes around. With crowds of people lining up outside multiple little rooms with tables and chairs, the place is incredibly popular.
I have no idea how to navigate to it since I was visiting with some locals who even asked for directions once or twice. The old city is incredibly confusing if you aren't well acquainted with its twists and turns, so definitely ask if you are lost. Everyone will know where Karim's is.
To satisfy the onslaught of hungry customers, these men are constantly turning out fresh naan and chapati. Get yourself a seat and enjoy one of these tasty breads with the meat dishes Karim's is famous for.

Eating a Delhi Tradition
For 100 years, Karim's has been serving up some of Delhi's tastiest food. If you head to the location in Chandni Chowk, you will have the additional fun of weaving your way through the old city and squeezing through an alleyway to get to the restaurants.
This is not a white-tablecloth tourist establishment, so be ready to sit in crowded quarters and explain what you want in pointing and gestures. Skip the vegetarian fare this time, this is traditional Mughlai food so be sure to try out the meats!
