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
  • "The best Indian food I've ever had. The variety of the menu meant something for everyone. We opted for the wine pairing which really enhanced the meal. The decor is gorgeous, the service impeccible. A great deal during Restaurant week."

  • "We decided to try Junoon's Restaurant Week menu, and were really impressed. The food was artfully prepared, interesting and delicious. As much as we enjoyed the top notch interpretation of Indian cuisine, the wine pairings nearly stole the show. The sommelier's brief explanations for his choices were genuinely helpful, and the pairings themselves were superb. This was our first visit to Junoon, and their dining room is calm, spacious and inviting. The staff are attentive and friendly. In short, we had a great meal."

  • "When a restaurant has a pretentious sommelier and expensive prices and insists on business casual dress in the dining room and no kids allowed, you should not be RUSHED by the wait staff, who brought a check before we asked for it, and prior to that tried to take away dishes before we done, and started off by hovering over us while we tried to decide what to order instead of offering to give us a few minutes to decide."

  • "One of the best Indian restuarant in NYC. I see why it has a Michelin Star. The rice pudding for dessert was very delicious. I wish i had more."

  • "We made reservations for an early evening romantic birthday dinner. We were especially impressed by the care taken to make the night a phenomenal experience. The tasting menu was well-worth it."

  • "I have now taken friends, family and clients here over the course of a year. Each time, the food and service has been exceptional. The wine list is particularly good and the Michael, the sommelier, always recommends the right wine and not the most expensive wine. Everyone I have taken to Junoon has left very impressed."

  • "super friendly and accomodating staff. was fasting for ramadan and came for dinner , my table was to be ready in 10-15mins but the host was super sweet for getting me seated faster so i wouldnt have to wait to eat. The server was also very helpful by going through the menu. good experience. classy place for a date too or family dinner."

  • "We loved the delicacy of the meal, the perfect pairing with the wines and the witty little surprises like chaat which is street food. But transformed by their extraordinary hand for spice."

  • "The pomegranate kulfi in particular, isn't available anywhere else."

  • "Had an absolutely wonderful experience at Junoon. I'm from India but what Junoon has done is redefined Indian dining and food experience. The colleagues I went with basically said: "Wow, I did not think Indian food could be served like this. This has totally changed my perception of Indian food". Taken the Indian dining experience to a fine dining experience, coupled with great service and great wine."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Service was outstanding, décor and setting are clearly a step above most Indian restaurants. An app called Lamb "kebob" ($20) was really a plated, beautifully presented dish of several pieces of perfectly cooked, tender meat, with no kabob skewer in sight. That was the highlight dish. Other dishes were all fine, but in light of the prices ($14 for dal, $26 for mediocre chicken biryani) we expected mind-blowing food. Go here if you want to impress a date or a client. Go elsewhere if you just want good Indian food at reasonable prices."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "My wife and I had Lunch at Junoon. The restaurant had only a few table full. The food was the best Indian food I had tasted outside India. I ambience was very pleasant and the service excellent. I would recommend the restaurant highly."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "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."

  • "Was very excited to go and have lunch at Junoon but was disappointed with taste of the food.. It was not great.. I had great expectations but i would rate it avg.. Service and ambiance was great but taste was just avg."

  • "I had heard about this restaurant as being michelin star and was intrigued by the chef Vikas Khanna. My one word review that sums up my experience at Junoon - underwhelming."

  • "We love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We have always loved the atmosphere at Junoon. Would definitely recommend it to anyone."

  • "Overpriced Indian food. Ambience is trendy but nothing unique. The food was above average."

  • "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"

  • "Junoon has maintained its high standards. Highly recommend a meal here."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "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..."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "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. "

  • "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!"

  • "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! "

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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. "
