A word from Junoon Restaurant
Derived from the Hindi word meaning passion, Junoon delivers on the promise of its moniker with an authentic, yet elegantly modern take on Indian cuisine. Restaurateur Rajesh Bhardwaj, inspired by his deep affinity and commitment to the food and culture of his native India, has assembled a talented team, who share his same vision including celebrated chef and cookbook author, Vikas Khanna, helming Junoon's kitchen as Executive Chef.

Don't forget to peak into Junnon's one-of-a-kind Spice Room where an array of fresh spices are ground daily and made into a unique blend to be used in the marinades and sauces for the day.

Diner Reviews
  • "This was a great delicious dining experience both times I went here recently. The Salmon Kebabs are delicious, the Lamb Chops were perfect, and the Lobster Curry , well just writing about it is making me want to go back."

  • "this was my second time here. As an Indian American, who cooks traditional Indian food, I love going here. Every dish is a real left turn from the standard Indian fare- in a good way. The dishes are inspired and unusual to anyone, familiar or unfamiliar with the cuisine. the portions are small so order accordingly. the naan peshawari stuffed with dried fruit was really delicious. And the onion Kulcha is mandatory! I had lobster curry. It was a little strange but I liked it. the cauliflower and eggplant appetizers were among the best. Good choice for vegetarians, OK for vegans. A great place to bring friends and clients. only drawback, a little too dimly lit, had trouble seeing my food clearly."

  • "The food is not good anymore. It was great when Vikas Khanna was the chef. Now the food is cooked by some random people. And it is still expensive. There are better high end Indian restaurants in NYC."

  • "Food wasn't prepared to order; I think it was heated up when served to me. The waiter was sort of rude until I complained about it. Mosquitoes flying about."

  • "The restaurant is an amazing one for Indian food. I was visiting for the 1st time and so had done my reservation but they had a dress code for the dining area which i dint knew about but the staff was too helpful and the manager gave us the permission to sit in the dining lounge. It was a great gesture from the staff which we loved. But we preferred sitting in the Patiala Lounge as the Ambiance was great. Food is amazing specially the "Lasooni Gobi". We loved the food. Even the staff and service was amazing. A wonderful Experience overall"

  • "I cannot wait to go back again. Best Indian food in the city with a great wine list that was unexpected. Service was tag team like with someone at our table on a non stop basis. A real gem."

  • "I have been to this restaurant 5 or 6 times now. The food is always very good--everything we had was equally well prepared--but the service in the most recent visit was a little too much in our face and a little off in the timing. Nevertheless, I will go back again because I am willing to overlook this one flaw unless it happens again."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Food was nothing short of delicious here. A bit on the pricey end, but the portions you get are much worth it. One of my favorite Indian restaurants in the city."

  • "had weekday lunch thali for $25. excellent value, very tasty though would have enjoyed even spicier food than provided. perhaps should have chosen alacarte or non-thali lunch. distinguished restaurant. remarkable service."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I dont mind spending money on a really good meal but when a small sea bass fillet costs $32 shouldn't a tiny drop come with it? Make sure to ask about spice levels--our $19 brussel sprouts (basically a side dish) was so hot we could not eat it whereas other dishes were bland..."

  • "The service was awesome. Multiple times during the night there wanna server or busboy nearby to assist us promptly. The menu offers an array of diverse dishes all rooted in Indian cuisine. Wonderful options. The executive chef has done an amazing job designing a menu which gets the taste buds stimulated while reading the menu. "

  • "We had dined at Junoon for our wedding anniversary with my children and the place was excellent for the occasion. The drink, food and service was great except for the Tellicherry duck curry which could have been better. Overall a great experience."

  • "Chose this place for a graduation celebration for my niece. We had a fantastic dinner with the most memorable lamb chops and duck I have ever eaten. I am still thinking about when I will go back!"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "The food here is excellent, the best Indian food I have had in a long time. However the service is unbeleivably slow, and this is the second time I have been there for lunch and it has taken 90 minutes for them to serve the two-course lunch special, and it would have taken longer if we had not aske dthem to hurry up. Only about five tables were occupied and the waiting staff were not very busy. Great for lunch if you can be out of the office for two hours! "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I came for our anniversary dinner, and everything was amazing. I had never had "upscale Indian" cuisine before, and it was quite a treat! We split two vegan entrees (about half of the vegetarian options are) with pulao rice, and it was the perfect amount of food. The wine selection was also fantastic, and the specialty candies at the end of the meal were lovely as well. A very nice place for a special occasion."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "A great restaurant with some of the most delicious meat dishes and definitely the best biryani. However the dining area by the kitchen gets really hot and stuffy, try to sit on the other side of the partition. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We had the tasting menu with the accompanying wine list and it was excellent from beginning to finish. Special kudos to the Sommelier who did a fantastic jobs with the wines. We had a great experience."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "This is more like a NY restaurant that happens to have an Indian chef. The Indian flavors are subtle. You can taste them. But don't expect a bowl of butter chicken. Only complaint is some of the dishes were a little onion heavy. Service was top notch. Only 2 misses: Waiter didn't tell us if one dish was safe for those with food allergies. We had to wait till he came by and ask. Second two different waiters tried to take drink orders. Think there was some confusion. "

  • "This is a great place to eat with family and friends . The food and service was great. The Chef the Cuisine Jonathan was awesome . The food presentation and the food taste was out of this world.I am looking forward to going and back soon. I would recommend this place."

  • "Over rated. Food ok. Very expensive very small portions. Even the drinks were expensive for the amount given! Management very attentive. Tried to make good on bad situation. Too many other good Indian restaurants with better food and much cheaper !"

  • "I normally avoid eating out in Indian restaurants as I feel I can cook better North Indian food at home. However, went with a friend and found the food quite good. The portions were on the small side but good. A trifle pricey."

  • "Had dinner with my wife and folks, food was spectacular as expected and the ambience was great. Service started off well but there were certain times of let down and we sat there longer than expected for them to clear. Had to get someone's attention to clear the table. Staff was generally attentive other than that period of time. "

  • "Making reservation was easy through OpenTable; we were received warmly; the culinary creations by the executive chef Vikas Khanna are astounding - elegant and creative interpretations of Indian food bring you the essence the traditional food in a thoroughly enchanting experience. Lovely interior created by Karimbhoy. The affable and energetic Vikas Khanna cared to drop by to check if all was ok - yes, it was. "

  • "A terrific place to take a client or a social date. The food is excellent -- it is Indian cuisine, but much higher quality than typical Indian fare (which I normally enjoy anyway), in the preparation, presentation, and interestingness. Spacious and not noisy at all (at least during lunch --don't know about dinner), so it was easy to talk. Very pretty ambiance. Would not hesitate to go back. Good value for the quality, especially the prix fixe lunch. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Food was good, not phenomenal. Expected better food from a Michelin Star restaurant. Food was good Indian food, but missing the "Indianness". Group of 5, ordered 2 Non-Veg Thali's, 2 Veg Thali's and 1 Prix Fixe. The server placed one Non Veg thali in front of the person who had ordered a Veg thali. Huge faux pas in a Michelin Star. Special mention to the ambiance, it was great for a group, could be intimate for a couple if they so wanted. Overall, good food, great ambiance, decent service."

  • "Loved the food. The bartender and hostess were great. However, we had a 9:15 reservation and did not get seated until 10pm. We waited in the bar and had a beer. Given the very long wait, we would have appreciated them comping the beer. Once we were seated, it took quite some time to get our order in. The eggplant chaat was delicious and the fluke superb. We also really enjoyed the lamb kohlapuri and the chicken biriyani. I would not pay the extra $8 for the chutneys. My dining partner is from India. She loved everything but wasn't crazy about the chutneys."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The food here was delicious. I had one of the best dahl dishes I've ever tasted. The cocktail list was interesting as well. I had a glass of champagne infused with saffron and orange peel. The only disappointment was the dessert. It was what I was expecting, but still tasted good. I'd recommend this to anyone for a special occasion dinner."
