Junoon Restaurant Shangri-La Review

I had the pleasure of visiting Junoon restaurant at the Shangri- La Hotel for a review. For this day I decide to take my son Owais along with me. He is a very picky eater and I thought that maybe if I start introducing him to new and different styles of food it might help him with his eating habits, his palate would mature also.

In Addition since I’m a foodie I wanted his opinion on the food that we tried. Man were we blown away by the food and the beauty of this restaurant!!

So lets start of with the restaurants name and meaning.
