5 Must Try Food Joints in Jama Masjid For Foodies (Bazar Matia Mahal)

The lane opposite Jama Masjid Bazar, Matia Mahal is filled with so many restaurants and food joints that serve lip-smacking dishes. But with so many choices, where will you find the best food? To kill your confusion, here are the 5 most sought-after food joints in Bazar Matia Mahal, Jama Masjid that you can try without thinking twice.

•          Karim’s

If you ask any foodie for the best place to eat at Jama Masjid then I am sure they will say “Karim’s”.  It is one of the Legendary Restaurants in Delhi. Food is brilliant. You might have to wait for seating considering they are crowded most days. But it’s worth the wait.

Must Try Dishes

–           Kebabs – Mutton / Chicken 

–           Mutton Qorma with Sheermal Roti (sweet bread)   

–           Brain Curry 

–           Phirni – You should not miss out on this after the main course.

Location: Karim’s Jama Masjid |16, Gali Kababian, Jama Masjid 

•          Aslam Chicken Corner

This place is famous for its unique interpretation of the butter chicken, when I say butter chicken it’s not the usual one, here loads of Amul butter is poured in as a gravy onto hand-grilled chicken. For a tangy taste, they add a little bit of curd in that. Believe me, it’s amazingly delicious. The chicken is served with a basket of rumali roti, green chutney, and onion. 

Location: 540, Bazaar Matia Mahal, Jama Masjid.

•          Al Jawahar

Al Jawahar is again one of the Mughlai food restaurants in old Delhi. This is an immediate neighbor to Karim’s. Have tried so many dishes and found few of them even better than Karim’s. A few of my favorites are Chicken Jahangri, Mutton Rogan Josh, and Biryani. The ambience is a little let down but the food is good.    

Location: Al Jawahar | Matia Mahal Road Opposite Gate 1, Jama Masjid 

•          Haji Mohd. Hussain Fried Chicken

This place was established 40 years ago and is famous for fried chicken. They marinate chicken in their secret spices and then fry them in a huge pan of boiling oil. It tastes delicious. They serve it with chutney and rumali roti

Location: Bazar Matia Mahal, Jama Masjid

•          Cool Point

This is an amazing place to satisfy your sweet tooth. I have been to this place so many times and never disappointed. Do try Shahi Tukda and Phirni. They serve ice cream, falooda, and other sweets too. 

Address: Cool Point | 973, Bazar Matia Mahal, Jama Masjid.
