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.

Experience was ordinary. There was nothing special knowing that it's a Michelin star restaurant. Food was ok, service was normal but sad.. no enthusiasm. I have been here before and quality and experience has definitely gotten worse.

A very over-rated dining experience. I have eaten in Indian restaurants all my life, and the website really excited me. But the food was dull and the flavors very uninteresting. It was overpriced for what it actually delivered.

The tasting menu was wonderful. Was looking for a different experience in Manhattan, and got what I was looking for. At least one guest should try the wine pairing, since you'll also receive a bit more education on each course during the wine presentation.

My mother, sister, and I were in NYC for a weekend together, and finished it with supper at Junoon. The meal was flawless - each dish had subtle, but complex flavors, perfectly balanced. The service was on point - attentive without being intrusive. The sommelier has excellent recommendations to pair with our meals.

This was a truly special evening.

The service was great. Really makes you comfortable and cozy. The starters were exceptional, something you can’t find easy. The main didn’t reach the taste of the starters and that was a little disappointing. Desserts were great too.
Overall if was living in NY I would give another chance.

We have been to Junoon before, and enjoyed it so much that we returned. Sophisticated Indian dining, well beyond the standard Sag Paneer and Bhagan Barta is featured on the menu, along with a high quality of service and sophisticated ambience.

I think the restaurant servers push really hard to sell the “a la carte” menu. Please focus on customers not the product you have.

I was a bit weary to dine at Junoon due to some bad ratings online, till a colleague recommended the restaurant to me. I was seated in the Main Dining areas where I was greeted by the staff, it was a bit over staffed but definitely not overwhelming. I had the coconut flavored lobster that was mouthwatering to look at and flavorful in all aspects. Personally, I give Junoon a 10/10 the servers were attentive, knowledgeable in terms of the food and wine. The ambiance was exceptional from the beautiful decor, to the lighting, and the space of the restaurant is large which is always a plus! I will definitely be returning soon.

Amazing food, great service. We ate in the main room which was older and louder with the exposed kitchen (also a little warmer), next time I’d be more interested in dining in the newer dining room.

Overrated. Food was served in room temperature. Except average rose/mango kulfi, all the dishes were below average. Everything was edible but expected a lot more from a Michelin star restaurant. The music didn't complement the setting of the restaurant.

Celebrating my son’s birthday during NYC Restaurant Week has become a tradition. This year we chose Junoon for upscale Indian food. It’s a lovely restaurant with excellent service & delicious food. We tried the eggplant chaat & ghost chili murgh tikka appetizers, chicken & monkfish curries for mains, rice pudding for dessert. The sommelier suggested wine to go with the curries & my son got a piece of chocolate mousse birthday cake. YUM!

There’s a good reason why this restaurant specializing in Indian cuisine consistently has ONE Star Michelin standing, it’s excellent! I have been here several times, both at dining room and the Patiala room, and so far it’s always satisfying in both food and service categories. This week’s visit though was made memorable by the night’s Service Captain (Jay, if I remember it right). I highly recommend this establishment to visiting foodies and locals who are craving for spice and curries. The restaurant week deal menu is also a steal, among the best offered for dinner this year.

Service is terrible for a Michelin 1 star restaurant. The waitress spilled food over on our table and my friend's plate, she did not even change the plate for my friend. They gave us the wrong menu, without apologizing. Also, the waiter forgot to tell us the ingredients of the dessert and turns out I'm allergic to one of the ingredients. The drinks are pretty good - that's one upside. Overall not so pleasant dining experience.
