Had a 9:00pm reservation that we arrived at 8:55pm for. Our table wasn’t ready until 9:30pm, after the staff member at the desk asked for the name on our party two more times after having us sit in the waiting area. Wait staff was a bit less attentive than would have hoped for as well. Didn’t feel like 1 Michelin Star service, but the quality of the food and drinks exceeded expectation.

Went for lunch and service was great. The manager (very courteous and friendly gentleman) was super helpful in explaining the menu. Most impressively he gave us detailed descriptions of the dishes (ingredients, origin of the dish/cuisine, a bit of history) that added depth and colours to our dining experience. It was our first time (restaurant week lunch) but I can’t wait to go back for a full dinner experience.

We had the opportunity to enjoy Junoon for restaurant week.thrilled. We enjoyed special cocktails off the main menu. Simply lovely. We had the minced root veggies with paneer and the scallops for apps. Each was tasty, and prepared not as we expected, yet very enjoyable.next up was the chicken thighs, very spicy/hot. The monkfish was also great, I was impressed how seasoned the dish was, still complimenting the fish. It fools you, the large dishes they serve them on. What seems like small plates left us more stuffed than ever! They have a sommelier and we consulted with her. Ended up with a delightful Rose , also part of the specials. Totally enjoyed it.23 ended dinner with the rice pudding, and the pastachio mousse cake. Really impressive desserts which you don’t expect for Indian food. It’s definitely hands down a place I would return to, especially for vegan and veggie friends, so many options. The dining room was understated elegance, even packed it retained a special feeling,and we could easily talk and hear each other.

Food was amazing and service was great! The place though was like a sauna. Extremely hot to the point that we were uncomfortable and wanted to leave.

The food at Junoon is of impeccable quality. I especially liked the Safrani Macchi. The ambience is very nice with their own unique cocktails. While I didn’t care about the cocktails much, the food blew me away and I felt like I was back in India.

Would definitely recommend.

I had very high expectations and had saved up since a long time to come here. The food was highly disappointing. It wasn't Michelin star level at all. We were four of us and ordered almost everything vegetarian available on the menu. Only the Mushroom gravy and the crispy Sunchoke was good. Rest everything was average. The service was really nice!

Best fusion indian food that I have ever had. The 3-course and the 4-course menu has a lot of choices for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Everything about this place is 5-star and is a Michelin Star Restaurant.

An amazing Christmas dinner. I am so happy I chose Junoon. The ambiance and service were superb. All the food was amazing. The Somm was so nice as well as our captain, Cody. Elio was so knowledgeable regarding the menu and his level of professionalism was off the charts. Highly recommend.

Most amazing Indian food I’ve ever had. Very large portion sizes means you should come hungry and get the most value out of your meal. Would heavily recommend the eggplant chaat and paneer for appetizers and the lobster curry for a main dish. Very very accommodative to gluten free.

Fantastic food let down by sub standard service.
Our dining experience was off to a poor start, when we arrived and no one was at the host booth. So we went to the bar and were told to return to reception to await the return of the hostess who should not be far away.
The booking details state that children under 10 are not permitted in the bar.
As we were enjoying our appetizers a family of 4 arrived with 2 children aged under 10 years, the children then proceeded to play computer games with the volume turned up. Not the ambience we were expecting from a Michelin starred restaurant. We ordered a gloss of wine to accompany our entrees. After starting to eat our entrees our wine had not arrived. We looked for service staff to see where it was and none were to be found. Eventually we got our wine.
The food here is so good it deserves so much more.
When plates were cleared there was a mess left on the table. As you can see from the attached photos this has not been cleared for dessert or coffee.
This restaurant needs to lift it service, as it is currently unacceptable, and I do not think it is acceptable for a Michelin starred restaurant .

This is truly high end . Almost all Indian restaurants serve the same food. It gets pretty boring after a while. This chef bring incredible creativity to his menu and brings the quality of the food to the highest level.
The restaurant itself has a warm decor. The friendly staff tops it all.
Highly recommended.

We ordered the tasting menu which is 150usd per person, and it was not worth it at all. The quantity was small and the quality was OK but inferior to other Michelin one star restaurants around the world. There was no surprise at all as they are not original at all and just mimics French restaurants at best. What's the point of going to an Indian restaurant? I guess I will keep eating Indian food at normal Indian restaurants. Sad that they could not be more original.

Very disappointed on this visit. That’s 2 in a row made me write this. I’m surprised to even write this for Junoon.

Food was extremely subpar or below not much choice on the menu. Too much oily and not consistent. Service was disappointing did not understand the ask and modifications on some of the menu items unheard of Junoon.

Not sure I’ll be back!!

Opentable made reservations in main dining room but got seated in patiala room. This need to updated with opentable. There should not be Fine print about lunch not been serve in min area.

Amazing meal. It was a business dinner so we decided to do 4 course dinner. Appetizer garlic butter pepper shrimp and eggplant chaat were very tasty and never had in any Indian restaurant . Ghost chicken tikka and lamb Boti kabab as middle course was just right amount of spice and perfect. Our main course lamb chop and lobster were amazing too. Dessert were quite non traditional but less in sugar and more out of the box. We requested saffron custard from tasting menu for dessert and it was so light and flavorful with pomegranate, hibiscus sorbet.
It was more than filing but quite an experience . Go hungry and enjoy the dinner at junoon dining room. It is classy, unobtrusive and less noisy. Highly recommend .

Overall it was a great experience. The service was great. They were very attentive to our needs and made modifications as some of us do not need duck, scallops etc. Some dishes were very creative and unique while some were very traditional. By the time we got to the thali, we could not eat at all. Uthappam was so so. Scallops, salmon were extremely good. The thali was very traditional nothing great about it. Corn kitchadi, saloni macchi and kalakki were very nice. The kalakki was quite spicy and we got the rice cake which was ok. The keema pao was looking like a muffin but fried but quite tasty. Artichoke mutter was very delicious. I got the anar kesar which was ok.

Did not live up to the hype. Had no Vikas Khanna touch, needs to remodel. No effort at all over presentation and overall food quality was average. Overall very poor, will not recommend to anyone. Better try one of the other Indian restaurants.
