Review on Vujon
The Sanskrit word 'vujon' translates roughly as 'gourmet dinner', which gives some idea of what to expect at this ultra-plush Indian restaurant established in 1990 on Newcastle's thriving Quayside.
Everything about the place oozes class, care, richness and opulence; service steers a professional course thanks to a brigade of waiters in colourful waistcoats
There's plenty on the menu to satisfy the traditionalists, including mixed pakoras with sweet-and-sour sauce, chicken tikka and prawn bhuna, but it's worth investigating some of the more unusual regional specialities. On the fish front, look for Dehli-style monkfish, marinated rainbow trout and salmon kalia cooked with tomatoes and coriander. Elsewhere, there's horin mangsho (Goan-style venison), topside of beef with mild spices and pistachios, and hash au bassh (a duck dish from the Chittagong hilltrack cooked with bamboo shoots and ginger).
Alternatively, if you have a stupendous appetite, try sharing the extravagant Vhandari's Surprise – a lavish 10-course banquet for two.
