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 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.

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 !

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.

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.
