I will be in your great city for a few days this September, before heading north to Uttaranchal. I am staying in Old Delhi, although I think it will be ramzaan...hopefully this doesn't affect my sightseeing too much.
I would love to hear your recommendations for places to eat in the evening in Delhi...Muglai food, kebabs and nihari especially. I have a guide book but would like to know what places the locals really like.
Thanks in advance,
Adam

Hi Adam,

Loads of Delhiites here and you gonna get a good list of places to go eat.. Best on my list would be KARIM's .. this is just next to the Jama Masjid..

You will have to be lucky also as I have missed three times in three years in Karims due to Ramzaan. Later we end up in the restaurant adjacent to Karims.

GRC, thanks for the recommendation. Karims is in my guidebook, and walking distance from my hotel.

During Ramzaan, some of the restaurants are closed for the whole day.

Whatever you do make some time to go fishing with the PHG. Give Vickram, Gavin, Sam or me a PM and let's fix this one up. We promise to carry a great lunch.

Hi Mahaseerken,
Thank you for the invite!
Unfortunately this time round, I am only spending a couple of days in Delhi at the start and finish of my time in India as I am heading off north for a week of guided mahseer fishing.
Next time, definitely, definitely, let's organise something in advance and I would love to see what you chaps get up to. I may well be in Delhi again at a similar time next year.
Cheers,
Adam

Apoo, thanks for the info. I suspected this might be the case but oh well, I am sure I will find somewhere interesting to eat.
I am very keen on trying the local paan as well, I can't wait!

Ask the paanwalla not to give too much of lime.

Apoo, thank you for the advice. I assume this is the chemical lime rather than the fruit nimbu. What is the Hindi for (chemical) lime?

Well I am back from the wonderful city of Delhi...because of Ramzaan I was not able to get to Karims, in the evening I ate at the restaurant "Chor Bizarre" in my hotel.
But on my last day I had lunch at Moti Mahal (the one in Daryaganj) and the staff were really friendly and the food exceptional. I had a very spicey mutton burra, seekh kebab, and boneless chicken massalam, with countless rumali roti and a jaljeera to cool off. As I left the restaurant and waited to cross the road, a paan-walla was right there on the pavement, so taking this to be fate I aided my digestion with a sweet paan - with not too much chuna - that was quite excellent.
Thank you all for your kind advice and I can't wait to visit Delhi again!

PS the fishing up north was pretty good, as well! I will post some photos later.
