If you think you know everything about Indian restaurants, think again. A quiet revolution is taking place at The Vojan. 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 successfully incorporates a series of dining rooms on a succession of stepped levels. Each one is gracefully lit and enclosed, in part, byhewn-slate feature walls. 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 garden, which is perfect for parties. We offer a great diary of entertainment, ranging from Tribute Acts, Bollywood Evenings and Disco Nights - Friday and Saturday evenings, a fantastic Cooking Club, where you can come along and learn to cook with our chefs in our kitchen, Business Networking monthly Group and much more.
