If Junoon wishes to aspire two star status, and the price implies that, then they need to at least maintain one star standard. Which appeared a problem. There were some highlights, the bread, the rest? The scallops were slightly over cooked, with a great sauce, however the lobster was definitely overcooked and chewy. For a seven course meal there were too many breads and rice. The lamb was tender, but the sauce difficult to understand. I didn’t like it, my friend did. Given the price I can’t recommend the main dining room, go to the front instead.

It was an awesome experience, service was outstanding, very well spoken and clean.
They also do synchronized service which is something that you don’t ever see happening in front on you.
Overall without getting into many details it was a worth it experience and I would definitely comeback for a showcase kind of dinner.
The tasting menu showcases all the highlights dishes and you can do either 6 or 7 courses.
Thanks for the amazing job keep it up!

Great tasting menu and the wine pairing. Basically I never ever had this kind of Indian food before. I am very glad I went this place. Starting from the Xavier and the black truffle with Indian version of risotto yummy. Dedicated service with great knowledge of wine and food. Pleasure talking to the manager.

Had a memoriable dinner at Junoon main dining room. Tasting menu was innovative, fresh and seasonal , mini uttapam with caviar, sloppy pao ( yummy ) khichadi with black truffle, black lime chicken, tandoori lobster and pistachio crusted rack of lamb were the highlight. Sommelier did a great job with wine pairing. Server were knowledgeable and professional.
Very serene romantic and dimly lit dining room was filled with rich ambiance.
Thank you for host team to note our anniversary on the reservation and making it memoriable.
Will love to come back again with our foodie friends.
Thank you junoon team.

Probably the best fine dining Indian restaurant in New York City. Make sure you try the ghost chili murgh tikka, hands down the best appetizer I've ever had at an Indian restaurant.

I went during restaurant week with friends and the food was delicious and good portion. I was advised that the portion for restaurant week will be smaller compared to the regular meal but as a three course meal, the size of the food was good nevertheless. Service was great - we were a party of four and it did not take long for them to bring our meal after we ordered.

While Junoon is Michelin star restaurant, hence my expectations were pretty high. However, while the food is great, It is not definitely the best in New York City from an Indian cuisine perspective. I was more disappointed with the environment - it came across as a ordinary.

Some of the food can be quite spicy, so ask the waiter before placing order. Very expensive, although you do get a lot of food, so go with an appetite. However, they forget our chutney tasting :(

Junoon was pretty great. The dining room was beautiful. The hostesses were not very welcoming. The waiters were good but sometime took awhile to get our wine and the sommelier. Otherwise the food was excellent. The room was quite noisy but I think that was just the night I was there as they had some loud group eating for a bachelorette party.

This has always been one of my favorite restaurants in the city, of any kind. For the first time ever I had a suboptimal
experience. Our server was incredible, but the hostess put us in a very bad table and I asked for another type (the nice corner booths) and she refused because if “reservations.” Which made no sense as it was 10pm and most of the booths were free or about to be cleared. I later realized that 3 of the 4 booths remained empty for the first hour of our meal (and the rest of the evening) and was able to get our server to switch us to one of the booths.

When we thought of a great place to take great friends for dinner and to catch-up, Junoon was mentioned! Best thought ever! I see why it has a Michelin Star! In my humble opinion, it is worthy of a 2nd one.
We began with great cocktails with Christian in the front bar - WOW what a start! I had two wonderfully mixed cocktails! We moved to the main dining area, where we were warmly greeted by Sebastian, who expertly and sincerely guided us through our culinary 6-course tasting menu! Huzzah! Worth every penny and minute. It is a great place to enjoy an evening of fine dining! I can't wait to go again...

Amazing expierence through a spice journey. Every course of tasting menu was wonderful. They do the seasonal menu, so it was nice to see seasonal produce on their menu. Alba truffle khichdi was extremely tasty. Pork Mundu chili was lightly spiced but quite a memorable dish. Baked Alaska with kulfi was quite a new approach and really tasty. Service was impeccable with unobtrusiveness yet up to the mark. Make sure you dine in their main dining room where they serve the tasting menu and no children seating.
By the way, junoon is only a Michelin star Indian restaurant for eight years in a row!! Highly recommend for an Indian tasting menu.
