voujon restaurant review

I had the pleasure of visiting Voujon restaurant with my mum during a recent visit to Edinburgh. It was also my mum’s birthday so I was proud to take her somewhere like this as a treat.

“Bengali and Indian restaurant Voujon is a passage to India, serving traditional Asian cuisine in a modern Scottish environment. Voujon have created an atmosphere combining elegance with a sophisticated ambiance, packed with the flavour, colour and aroma of Bangladesh and Northern India.”

It was a 5-minute taxi drive from our hotel on Cowgate and well worth travelling to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. The restaurant/Takeaway is on Newington Road which looked as though it was in a residential area of Edinburgh and was full of local residents and as they say when travelling eat where the locals go.

When we were enjoying our scrumptious meal, the restaurant started to fill with groups meeting up, couples enjoying a night out and two friends having a girlie catch up with a curry and a bottle of prosecco what a great way to spend an evening. There is even the possibility of private dining in the function suite which would be great for business dinners, birthday parties or any celebration in general.

The staff were friendly and the decor was welcoming. The service was great, quick and the choice of menu was something I hadn’t come across in an Indian before I can totally understand how this place got nominated for the best Indian in the National curry awards 2016 and other curry awards.

The menu is a fusion of traditional Bengali recipes with influences from both East and West. The menu features a number of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes including classics such as Rhogan Josh, Madras and Pathia and special dishes like Katmandu Chicken Delicacy and Methi Gost. A full wine list is available so you can pick the perfect accompaniment for your meal.

I love garlic nan

Washing it down with a nice cold Grolsh.

Everything tasted so fresh and was made of good quality ingredients. It was one of the tastiest Indian restaurants I have been to, funny how one of the others was in Glasgow maybe Scotland is the new Indian capital of the UK. It isn’t only me that loved the food here, you just have to read the other reviews on facebook to see how good this place is.

I received a complimentary meal from Voujon in conjunction with Crimson Edge PR. Opinions are my own. Please see disclaimers for further details.
