Edinburgh's Voujon, translated as invitation to dine, has been serving Indian and Bengali food in the Newington area of the city since 2005. The bright, airy and contemporary dining area, complete with simple floral displays and leather seating which invites you to linger is matched by the immaculate service and delicious food. The colourful dishes, delicately spiced, take their inspiration from the East but add a pinch of the West to ensure a unique dining experience. Don���t wait for an invitation to dine at Voujon, make your booking today.

Another return visit with friends and family which once again did not disappoint. Friday evening dinner in a nice bright and airy restaurant.

I like a good curry, I like mild, I like spicy, vegetable, fish, chicken dishes - but I have never experienced the flavor and depth of interesting spices as we experienced at Voujon last evening. It was simply outside my experience. The bad news is it may have ruined me for other establishments! The nut naan, Katmandu chicken, chickpeas, dall,... More

A great place. Fantastic food. Really surprising as it looks like an average restaurant and then turns out to have top notch food. We were a party of 11 ! and all of us had something different and thought it superb.....and great value

We went to the Voujon which was near our B&B. Both of us love Indian cuisine and the Voujon was very good. We asked for our food to be spicy hot and it was. The service was also very good. If you like Indian food and are in Edinburgh, Voujon is a good choice.
