i have always gone to Karim for food, and use to skip Al Jawahar, but this time went there as Karim's is becoming too commercial. Unlike karim, AL Jawahar staff is courteous and the food lives up to its name, give it a try over karim and you won't be disappointed, the korma is good, but the Burra Kebab, aka... More

When was the last time you visited Al-Jawahar? My visit here after an year today was totally disappointing. The place known for its Changezi, a chicken curry dish that I favored any day over other outlets here. Have been visiting this place since college days and always loved the food here. Unfortunately on my recent visit their signature dish Chicken... More

Best Chicken Changhezi I have ever had, been going there since many years but taste never change, serves very yummy Tandoori Chicken which is so soft and juicy and goes very well with the tandoori roti they serve. Mutton varieties are ok. Friendly staff and rates are reasonable. Personally speaking found it better than Karim.

This is the tandoori meat you dream of India having. The mutton is mind blowing and the paneer packs a punch. My regret is we discovered it on the last day.

This restaurant is well-known enough and close enough to the Jama Masjid mosque that you will probably not be the only tourist eating there. Still, it's a good experience and the food was mostly quite good. We enjoyed the butter chicken and daal but found the kebabs a bit off. They will give you utensils but it's a fine place... More

Next to Kareems opposite Jama Masjid. Loved food here. Ordered Chicken Korma with Roomali roti and it was outstanding. Quite affordable. Only flip side is they don't accept debit or credit cards or Paytm.

Soft Khaniri Rotis and Sheermals, falvourful kebabs and keemas and perfectly spiced burras. We ended our food tour with a dinner at Al Jawahar.....and walked away very satisfied. The service was very attentive and our dishes arrived just as we were finishing whatever was in front of us.

I visited on 26th Dec. with my wife and son. Ordered Tandoori chicken. They took 15 to 20 mins to serve which is ok but, the dish was neither fresh nor hot to a proper level. I ordered Mutton korma as well which was tasty and fresh and I must say yummy. Waiter serves food without any courtesy. The biggest... More

Have visited this place numerous times in the past and not even once has it disappointed me. The staff has always been caring too. Recommended dishes : chicken changezi, mutton korma, nihari, raan. This place offers the best mughlai cuisine, a must visit, give karims a pass and try this, you wont regret!

Thank Nitish J
