The food here is always incredible, and is only matched by its impeccable service. Everyone who works here is a dream, and the food will always leave you wanting more.
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.
Top notch service!
Absolutely wonderful in all categories; an experience not to be missed
Good but not great meal despite the price tag. Service was inconsistent and the food wasn’t as flavorful as I would have hoped. I think there are better Indian restaurants in the city.
Fantastic food, lives up to its Michelin Star
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 :(
The most amazing dinner I’ve had in ages. Do not miss the basmati crusted octopus or the goat. Amazing breads and Dahl too
Overall an excellent experience. The food was really memorable.
I'm not a review person. But this time I must write something about this place. The cocktails taste so delicious and refreshing. The first course were squash shorba and gost chili tikka I can't remember when was the last time i had something super delicious like this.the entrees where even better in terms of flavor and spices.i would recommend junoon to every body who loves great Indian food.
Best dining experience of my life
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.
we visited this restaurant in last week and we had a great time. Tasting menu is very interesting. Rice khichadi was the best dish I had. Our server jay was great and explained all the courses very impressively. Kitchen is open so we also enjoy the kitchen’s view. I am glad to dined in this beautiful restaurant. Will be back soon.
Very good exprrience indeed but over priced. To mutch expensive
Excellent tasting menu and wine pairing executed by professional , ambitious kitchen staff and professional floor staff and Sommelier. Will be back again.
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.
