    The murgh chicken biryani is one of the best I've ever had. The cooks bring out flavors that are usually hard to detect in the spices and the chicken is tender, not too soft or hard. Simply marvelous.

    A wonderful experience, though I typically can't bring myself to pay excessive amounts of money for Indian food. Junoon did a great job on our private event, and I've had a great HH here in the lounge

    The tasting menu is a must. I wish the dishes were more “saucey” but it’s a beautiful menu nonetheless.

    Good tasting menu. Try the eggplant salad , very delectable ! Ambience is nice and service excellent. Take a good look at the spice room in the basement. Interesting.

    Has to be one of the best restaurants in the city. The breaded cauliflower is excellent, as is the ghost pepper chicken. The best thing, in my opinion, is the za’atar style junoon naan.

    I'm blown away that this restaurant doesn't have a 9.0 rating or better. Food was great! Although there may be some reticence to ethnic cuisine, the palate of the food really is great for everyone.

    Come Tuesday or Wednesday night to the bar and you will be served by the best bartender in NYC - Mike! I love the off menu cocktails - the spicy margarita and the vodka infused with cardamon!

    Some of the best Indian food in the city. Lamb chops are fantastic but you really can't go too wrong. Beware of the cheese naan. It will lure you in

    This is not your typical Indian restaurant - be prepared to be wowed by the impeccable service, delicious cocktails, and of course amazing food. I recommend their lamb dishes and the dal.

    The mirchi pakoda has a very subtle spicy flavor to it. The chutneys that come with it, complement the pakoda really well. A very good appetizer.

    Trust the bartender, especially if he's Michael. Go on a tour of off-the-menu whiskey cocktails and you'll never come back. If you're nice, he'll make you a bourbon-honey-ginger-guava slice of heaven.

    High end-fancy-great tasting food w amazing service in NYC.Must try-lasooni gobi and nadru kofte. Pomegranate mai tai was refreshing. ABSOLUTELY divine- junoon spiced naan-worth the calorie overload:)

    For dessert, the cardamom sponge is otherworldly. It comes with a slice of khulfi (Indian ice cream). The play of textures is a delight on top of sweetness.

    Chipotle chicken tikka and paneer pekoras to start with nadru kofte and chicken biryani for the main course. All were excellent. Next time I'll try the brussels. Pay with Cover.

    Best dammed service of any restaurant. Had an off the menu, menu tasting. Delicious and great presentation as well, as good of presentation as Indian food can have.

    Such a great spot. I loved the Paneer Pakoras and the Hyderabad Chicken Khorma. Their kulfi is a great way to close out the meal. Sat in the lounge area. Definitely earned their Michelin star.

    If you're looking for standard Indian fare, this is not the place. This is high-end stuff. The flavors and spices brought me back to my trip to India and everything was amazing!

    So tips from an Indian-the lamb boti kebabs and the tandoori lamb chops are NOT good. Better dishes are the eggplant chaat (kinda), the shahi goat (really good!) and the lamb kolhapuri.

    Trendy with a touch of Indian-styled décor, a refined menu and a noteworthy selection of wine. The dishes are small and perfect for sharing! We love coming here with a big group.

    Upscale Indian food representing all regions of India. Lighter than usual. Naan and other breads truly amazing. Fantastic choice for vegetarians, good for crowds and special occasions.

    A top end spot with great food. Can be expensive so the smart move here is lunch for the 3 course price fixe is only $25.

    Flatiron's Junoon takes Indian cuisine to the next level. This spot covers all bases of Indian cooking, from tandoor to cast-iron & open-fire-pit cooking to stone-searing. We love the Chicken Malvan.

    Junoon’s underground spice room is at the heart of the restaurant’s every dish. Every spice used is ground fresh daily—giving each masala and curry a unique aroma that couldn't be found in a box.

    Good food-poor attitude. Too many rules.can’t order a la carte in diningroom-every one has to order menu, if one does. Can’t order dishes from set menu-cheap restaurant in India attitude. Why the star

    Great Indian food but not much better than other restaurants hence the Michelin star appears like an overstatement. Great deal for lunch

    Staff is attentive and the interior is romantic. Ate in the patiala room, but I think the regular dining area seemed cozier. Had the duck - def too salty for my taste. Naan is like heavenly clouds.

    strange experience: on one hand, the fusion of two cuisines genuinely works but the dining rooms don't - both lacking energy. the cavernous back room feels like a waiting room at an airport lounge.

    This place is fantastic, but expensive. Dont miss the Piri-Piri Shrimp, Lahsooni Gobi, and the (cherry/apricot/pistachio) Peshwari Naan.

    Nice, upscale place. Their naans do not match up Utsav's, but the dishes are very flavorful, with a lot of different spices which are well balanced.

    A great place to introduce someone to Indian cuisine; for a more casual but intimate dining experience, ask to be seated in the Patiala Lounge
