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.
Don't forget to peak into Junoon'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.

Delicious Indian cuisine.
The experience was good, but he main dining room food is overrated for what its worth.
Heard about Junoon through an article in Time Out New York where it was described as "romantic" and thought it would be great place to celebrate our anniversary. Checking out the menu I was excited to see that the main dining room offered tasting menus with and without wine pairings and a prix-fixe menu. When we made the reservation on open table we were prompted to note if there was a special occasion so we did and we were very pleased to be seated at a cozy, corner booth table and to be served an additional, celebratory, complimentary "Happy Anniversary" dessert at the end of our meal. We opted for the prix fixe, enjoyed each course, and had plenty of food. We gave only 4 stars for service as we were charged for 2 bottles of still water even thought we had indicated we preferred tap when asked at the beginning of the meal and the waiter was unable to assist us when brought it to his attention when we paid the bill. The only other minor issue was that the music was a bit louder than we had expected. Other than that, a great meal and we would recommend for special occasion dining.
One of the nicer indian restaurants in the united states.
Great Indian cuisine in the city of New York . The food and service takes the experience to another level. They offering 3 course 2 course and testing menu. The side dishes are all included. Dal makhni is the best in my opinion. We didnt see the gueridon service this time. That was the only thing missing from the last time .
Pros: Outstanding Bar/Bartender, Ambiance ; Service went from 5 stars at beginning to 3 stars by end of 8 courses. Cons: In a 8 course tasting menu only 3 were memorable / outstanding. Have dined at other Michelin star winning restaurants and would not agree with the award if based on food alone. Other components deserved star rating.
Excellent as always but I think next time we will do the three course prix fixe.
We really enjoyed the 8 course tasting menu but spending 4 hours at a restaurant is a bit too much.
The three course menu is too much food! Prefer ala Carte, but so yummy!
It was a special occasion for us. We enjoyed the drinks and the meal. Portions were large. The food was tasty and not very spicy.
Wonderful venue for my birthday. Expensive but great for a special occassion. We did 3 course which includes extras - so plenty of food and great service as well.
Worst food I’ve ever had
Probably the best Indian food we have ever had. From the drinks to the dessert, it was just pure gold.
We dined in the Main dining room and did the 3 course meal.
Appetizers: We got the Ghost Chili Murgh Tikka and the Smoked masala ribs- both were heavenly. Generally, I feel like Tikka can be dry, but this was not the case at all. There was just so much flavor involved, and it was incredible.
Entree: I had the Lobster Moilee and my partner got the Telicherry Duck and all I can say is.. what?!! How in the world can you get so much flavor into this? Let me tell you, I am actually South Indian and Moilee is actually something made in South India often. It is actually a difficult dish.. and on top of that, it was made with lobster!! Fantastic job with these dishes.
Dessert: We got the drunken shahi Turka and the kulfi pops. The cake was a saffron cane drenched with delicious rum and a crunchy surprise of mini popcorn on top! I swear, all of my taste buds were tingling. The kulfi pops took me back to India - I mean, how do you get the paan leaf flavor like that?! So awesome!!
Mumbai margarita - mango margaritas with the right amount of spice.
Junoon Julep - minty goodness
Thank you, Junoon for such a memorable night!!
Food was excellent. Waiters explained each dish. Also helped us choose the perfect dishes to compliment each other. Service was spectacular.
Lived up to the hype as the only Indian restaurant in nyc with a Michelin Star. Delicious food. Great service. Appreciate how they were able to add a twist/unique ingridents but maintain the integrity of the indian dishes. Overall excellent meal.
We had a wonderful time at Junoon! The service was wonderful, the ghost chicken appetizer was out of this world amazing, and the ambiance was perfect! We will definitely be back!
Fabulous indian food - went with a friend from Bangalore who was impressed with the food and the creativity. Delicious and beautiful and amazing service.
It’s a delightful experience to dine in Junoon. Wonderful atmosphere .Mouth watering aroma hit my nose as soon as I entered the restaurant.Our server was pushy about the tasting menu . Now I know why he was doing that. I wanted to order some dishes from the regular menu he prioritize my need and accommodate the dishes as a part of the tasting. The courses were exceedingly well decorated and super delicious(gost chili murg tikka I tried instead of the poussin,Las mass I tried instead of the duck). The service was attentive and professional. My wife is very happy that I made the special day of our life even more special. To sum up a little advice to the management to keep the restrooms Clean. That is the only place is lacking in standard.
Service was diner service and a little kitchy. Food completely over priced
What ever is on the menu, it has and is so very good. If you haven't tried this place you are truly missing out.
My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. Everything was fantastic! We went for the 3-course menu but shared everything, so it ended up being plenty of food. My boyfriend tends to be picky with Indian food as that’s where he’s from, but he loved everything here! Lal Mirch Ka Paneer appetizer was the highlight. And they brought us a special dessert for our anni! Would definitely recommend.
Service was friendly. Food was exceptional. You can watch the cooks in the kitchen from your seat. Generous portions. Best Indian food I’ve had. Will absolutely go back.
Junoon was amazing. The creativity and complexity of flavors was a delight. Savored every bite. The servers were very attentive and made sure we experienced authentic Indian dining cuisine at its finest.
The whole environment is good and relaxed. It's comfortable for enough space.
Everything is nice except the dessert. Order roasted salmon for appetizer, so good! It's big and enough to make me full. Curry is delicious and typical. The main course I ordered is curry shrimp. Good enough. However, the dessert is weird for me.
Good food as always. Never disappointed. Some new dishes which should be on the regular menu - pork belly in a spicy malabar spices
Value for money can be increased by including typical desi items like raita, vinegar onions and pickles which are staples in the indian cuisine as part of pre fixed deal. They cost less than a dollar but add completeness to the meal.
The meal was quite good but quite expensive with the only option being the tasting menu. The atmosphere was dull and the room temp was muggy due to a lack of A/C. Definitely expect more in an experience at $200 a person.
Visited Junoon for Restaurant week recently and everything we tried was very tasty from appetisers to deserts. Special mention here for their cocktails and the Lord of the Rings inspired ones. Tried Aria Stark and John Snow.
This place understands the value of respect and self-respect. It shows in their staff, and it shows in their dishes. While they plate things with beauty, it's clearly a second thought to the priority of signature in their taste. Tread carefully here, or you might be taken completely off guard.
This was our first experience with Junoon and we had the 3-course, summer 2018 Restaurant Week menu. The appetizers were tremendously good, especially the saloni macchi (spiced Atlantic salmon). The main courses were very well done, but nothing noteworthy. We were definitely underwhelmed by both desserts we tried. All told, we very much enjoyed the experience and will probably try the full tasting menu some day.
I visited as part of NY restaurant week, and ate from the dedicated $42 pp menu. Upon arrival I waited for my dining companion in the foyer. The ambience was nice, and the aesthetic also - it appropriately felt Michelin Star. When we were ready to be seated, we were taken to our table. We both had bags and and umbrella, and when I enquired if they had somewhere we could store them we were told to leave them at our feet. This felt a little strange, it would have been nice to have a cloak room.
The service was not fantastic. Our primary waiter seemed disinterested, and acted inconvenience by our presence, despite all attempts to be friendly. He also got one of our wines wrong. That being said, the service was timely.
The entrees were fantastic, as were out cocktails - both presentation and taste was of high standard. The mains were disappointing, both the malabari shrimp and murg lababdar we presented very unoriginally and definitely not a standout out in terms of flavour - they felt unbalanced and incorrectly seasoned. The accompanying rice and naan were nothing special. I have experienced a much nicer expressions of this cuisine at small Indian restaurants in Sydney that do have nearly as much acclaim as Junoon.
The desserts were very good, but again nothing spectacular. The Kulfi trio was very lacking in terms of presentation, however the other dessert (cannot remember the same, saffron something with berries) looks stunning and was very balanced. We ordered an extra dessert as I really wanted to try the drunken shahi tukra, much to the waiters apparent frustration. It was brought out by the pastry chef who passionately explained the dish - this was a very nice touch. It looked spectacular and tasted very good. I would still say it was lacking that 'wow factor' in terms of tasted, but it was definitely the highlight.
Overall it was a very good meal, but I have to admit I was expecting better from a one Michelin Star restaurant.
We had the slowest service and after bringing our food we never saw our server again and finally had to ask for him to come to our table. This is the second time we had this slow service. We wanted more bread and never had our server come to our table even once.
Very very good !
All the spices are hand ground - the menu is different than most Indian restaurants - but ! The preparation and tastes of the various dishes are amazing !
Must have the Gin & Tonic cocktail ! Amazing !
Excellent place , beautiful decor .
Only criticism is that it is very expensive.
2 appertizers - 2 entree’s - I dessert - 4 drinks $340.
So so , worth visit ones
3 course meal for $75 was pricey but delicious, drinks at $17 were also a little steep considering the small - but savory - size. Overall happy with the meal, would consider returning.
Very hot in place and seating was quite uncomfortable in the big round booth... food and service was outstanding
We have been here many times and the food is consistently delicious.
Pretty good meal but pretty much everything was spicy and the kitchen had no ability to fine tune a dish to your desire.
We had a superb experience at Junoon. The food was incredible, the service impeccable. It's Michelin star is well deserved.
We went for tasting menu. Except the dessert which was a disappointment, everything else was exceptional. We loved it. The staff was very friendly. We would come back here again for sure.
