The luxurious Indian restaurant that is Vujon is located in Newcastle’s historic Quayside area and boasts stylish and elegant interior design and beautifully presented food. Vujon has been serving excellent-quality Indian cuisine since 1990 and has remained incredibly popular with locals and visitors ever since. With a string of accolades under their belt, the restaurant is going from strength to strength; most importantly it is a delightfully sophisticated place to eat and the food is top notch. The team here places great importance on offering a fresh take on the Indian dining experience, serving contemporary food in a chic, modern setting.
The varied menu at Vujon is a creative and diverse celebration of traditional Indian classics and popular contemporary dishes. Starters include a generous mixed tandoori platter for two, sumptuous tiger prawns in chilli, lemongrass, kaffir lime, garlic and honey, and Achari paneer: cubes of Indian cheese marinated in yoghurt and mixed pickle, slowly cooked in the tandoor. The presentation sets Vujon apart from other Indian restaurants – the mains are truly beautiful. Try the pheasant tarkari, a delicate dish from the region of Pondicherry, which has French culinary influences, or plump for the rich and tender lamb shank rogan josh, served with saffron pilau rice and caramelised shallots. An extensive selection of fine wine and Champagne are available to accompany your meal, and private dining is available for large parties upon request.
