One of the most exciting restaurants to come to Dubai is Junoon, an Indian restaurant whose roots lie in New York.  Of course, four continuous years of Michelin star at its original New York outpost has rubbed off on its Dubai branch and it is apparent in its special Iftar menu. The Indian restaurant is serving a delicious platter of modern chaats, kebabs, biryanis and curries, including goat kebab, black dal and tender chicken tikka and crispy eggplant chaat. Make sure to savour their mango tapioca pudding with pistachio meringue and pomegranate.
