Great food. Their service is better than Karims and the food is better and different in some of their signature dishes. Dont miss the fish and the raan.

Seating very typical of those old Mughlai restaurants on the lines of a Sarvi in Mumbai, Ask for package water What we ordered for Chicken Changazee - i think i have spelled it right, we ordered a half portion between 4 grown men and must say the quantity was great. The dish tasted great just that there was an oil... More

I am a regular visitor of this restaurant. Whenever I want to have some non veg dish , I came here. The food quality are really good. Their special food is mutton Korma and it's finger licking curry. This place is open even in midnight.

Happen to go to this part of town quite often recently on business since the last 3 months and inevitably land up at Al jawahar for the famous mutton korma and freshly baked bread as mutton is one thing my wife does not fancy making at home being a vegan / veggie mostly. Strictly for the non veggies - Recommend... More

We came in search of gorging on some delicious biriyani however, it was utter disappointment. You can safely give this place a miss!

Chicken Jahangiri, Chicken Stew with Khameeri Roti is one of the best food that you could ever get your hands on. If you happen to visit Delhi go for this Restaurant this is situated in front of Jama Mazjid Gate# 2.

A must visit place to taste the widest range of non-vegetarian food, tandoori and romali roti and the must have kheer, the best you can have anywhere in the country in particular and Delhi in particular.

Al Jawahar has been a popular alternative to Karim's ever since its conception and the food has always been up to the mark. For us growing up, it was the place to eat authentic Mughlai and Tandoori foods at. However, with great success comes great responsibility and they have utterly failed in dealing with that. On any given lunch hour... More

Al Jawahar Restaurant is located at the entrance to Chandni Chowk Market and directly across from gate 1 of the Jamah Masid, the largest mosque in India. We were told Al Jawahar is arguably the only place on the famous Matia Mahal Road where you can get a spacious setting with air conditioning, limited number of patrons, variety of food... More

This is one of those really old and famous restaurants which are always in demand. Most food is spicy to cater to Indian junta. Except Mutton Stew which seemed to have a neutral gravy. Chicken Biryani came with a big piece of Chicken and egg. Sheer Maal is something you can try. The food comes in good quantity so may... More
