Saturday night takeaway or a night at Vujon

I am one of those people who always orders the same thing from Indian restaurants. I know what I like and I'm always worried to try new things incase they aren't as good as what I normally order. So getting the chance to try different dishes at an Indian restaurant was great for me, especially now that I've found a few dishes I would definitely order again.
So last week I headed to Vujon, Newcastle. Vujon is down by the quayside in Newcastle, and I must say I loved the feeling I got when walking up to the building. To me it didn't feel like I was walking into a restaurant, as from outside it looked more like a grand house. It just felt very welcoming.
The staff were great in Vujon, they couldn't do enough for you, which really does stand out in restaurants. When reviewing restaurant I always think the actual food only covers 50% of the review, the rest is judged by the appearance and staff. Customer service for me is a huge thing, and how that is received would be the decider as to whether I would go back or not. I can definitely say I would return to Vujon. The waiters and waitresses were very prompt and asked us regularly if we needed any more drinks or answered any questions we had. This stood out to me. Not only that but we were presented with such a large range of food, you got a good feel of what was available from the menu.
The idea of this evening was to try some of the new dishes that are being added to their evening menu and they set up a set menu for us to try, as follows:











Each and every one of the starters were beautiful, I loved them all. And as much as the Angari Tikka was quite spicy, it was also very flavoursome which was lovely. The kebab and pakora were presented lovely and tasted amazing, not too spicy and full of flavour.
With the mains, I was really shocked by the Railway lamb curry, as much as it tasted like a spicy Heinz tomato soup, it was absolutely delicious. And I would order this again and again!! The Murgh Makhani Delhi Style  tasted just like the dishes which I would typically order from an Indian takeaway which I really liked. I also really enjoyed the vegetable dish we were served as an extra, the Tarkari Handi. It tasted very flesh with just the right amount of spice. 

Unfortunately I wasn't very keen on the Matcha Ice cream we were served for dessert. I found the flavours far too strong and very sickly! Which was such a shame because I loved every other item of the menu.

If you are looking for somewhere to dine in Newcastle City Centre I would definitely recommend visiting Vujon, perfect place to eat before drinks by the quayside.
Let me know if your heading to Vujon anytime soon.
