“Slow start but finish was great”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Ate here when staying locally with a group of mates on a walking trip . Restaurant has modern decor and staff were welcoming. Having decided to go for the set meal the poppadoms and drinks arrived promptly but then had to wait 50 minutes for the starters hence the title. However having said that staff were apologetic and even threw in some extra starters. After that the mains and sides were dserved promptly and all the food throughout the evening was excellent and really tasty. Apart from the poor start this was a really good restaurant and would certainly recommend it.

“Great food ”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We've eaten here and had take always a lot since it opened. And the food is always lovely. My only complaint would be if you have a large party don't eat in as the service when busy isn't great. Had to wait 45 mins for starters and by the time we got our mains it was very late. But, we still go back, as I still think it's the best curry house in Banbury.

“special place lovely food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Its not your expected indian restaurant as there is no flock wallpaper or piped indian music

Its very contemporary in layout lighting and atmosphere

The food is independently different than the mass market cuisine

The owner and his staff are quite delightful whether you are wanting a takeaway, a sit down meal for two or ten in a party

Its graet value for money and a sheer delight to enjoy the atmosphere and the hospitality

“An evening of pleasure”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

What can a say? Despite a party of 40 upstairs the service was second to none. Now I can be fussy at the best of times and will complain if I don't get the service expected but have to say that the service was exceptional. The welcome was the warmest and we were both made to feel like special guests and above all else Faruk the owner treated us like friends and ensured that we had the best time accompanied by the best service. The food was probably the best Indian food I've ever had with the best dishes I've ever had the pleasure of sampling. All In all a 10/10 dining experience and I'm not easily pleased but without a doubt will not hesitate to eat here again!

“Great curry house with really great food.”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

The curries are your staple choices, plus some good house specials, but they really are better than at ordinary curry houses.
We've lived in Banbury for 2 years now and Voujon is by far the best curry and actually a strong contender for best restaurant.
The owner and his team are extremely lovely and always fit us in with any number of friends we rock up with.
Highly recommended.
