About
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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely evening in the Voujon. The service was brilliant, the food was wonderful, and the wine was exceptional. If you are in the Southside of Edinburgh you need to pay this restaurant a visit Personally recommend the Keralan Chicken.

I'm glad we stopped by to give Voujon a try. Good atmosphere and a good menu different from the usual Indian restaurant. Enjoyed my dish of half chicken curry. Although the chichen on the bone was slightly under cooked, which I needed to cut it...about to avoid the under cooked bit. But it didn't distract me from a pleasant dish too much. Will try again.More

I've been going to Voujon with my family since I was little, and evey time I go the food seems to get better! The staff are unfailingly polite and friendly, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I moved cities 3 years go and I'm...yet to find an Indian restaurant does food on par with Voujon; truly the food they serve is some of the best I've ever had, the flavours are complex and delectable, and come in a wide variety. If you're looking for a new place to go with your family, a romantic spot for a date, or even just a good Indian takeout, I can't reccomend this place enough!!More
