Tucked away in the lanes of Ongar, Vojan appears to struggle with consistency and fails to deliver a dinner that you’ll remember. Pros - Good selection of dishes and it was refreshing not to need a bookmark for the menu. - Clean - Friendly Waiters...More

Visited with the family for my birthday. As usual the service and food were excellent. Even though the restaurant was full it did not affect the level of service. Food was delicious. Can’t wait to go back

We had different selections and enjoyed them all, the quality of the food, the ambience and the service were all very good. The price was a little high but worth it.

Description
Award winning Head chef Forid Ali has created a menu that will ignite your senses, combining fresh and intriguing flavours (drawn from his culinary heritage) with a modern twist. Vojan is a destination restaurant, but loyal local patrons still regularly enjoy their very own dining gem. The large, chic interior incorporates a series of dining rooms on a succession of stepped levels. Vases brimming with arching white lilies and tables set with crisp white linen create a natural yet sophisticated air. The spacious restaurant seats 200 diners, but the architecture and lighting evoke intimacy at every table. One of the dining rooms opens onto a contemporary private courtyard garden, perfect for parties. We offer a great diary of entertainment, ranging from Tribute Acts, Bollywood Evenings and Disco Nights - Friday and Saturday evenings, occasional Cooking Club, where you can come along and learn to cook with our chefs in our kitchen, Business Networking monthly Group and much more.
