Service:  The staff were very quick on their feet. Extremely attentive and pleasant to all guests. Our main server, Lungelo, explained each and every dish on the menu, and also recommended a variety of dishes depending on our preference from the  drinks all the way to the desserts. The staff definitely makes your table feel special.

What we loved: Presentation is everything. While we were welcomed by the staff, from the moment we walked through the entrance until we were seated at our table, the décor, the mood and atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect. Every dish was unique from the Egg Plant Chaat to the  ”Falooda” Chocolate Matka, unlike a typical Indian restaurant, where there isn’t much creativity when it comes to presentation.

Ambiance: Impressive. Junoon Dubai is one of the very few restaurants in Dubai where the level of music is just right for one to enjoy it but at the same time be able to have a conversation going with their dinning companions. It was pretty occupied for a weekday, which was surprising.
