Voujon, Orsett

Although I grew up in Essex, it was a very long time before I had a curry there. When I moved away, curry started to become a regular part of my diet, and now it’s something we generally have once a week. You may have already spotted several curry house reviews. This is another of those.

Voujon is what now lives in the building that for almost all of my lifetime was known as the Orsett Cock. Apparently it dated back to around the 1820s, but it closed down in around 2010, and a curry house is now in its place. Swings and roundabouts. An appropriate turn of phrase, as the site is on the Orsett Cock roundabout.

A takeaway for us tonight, after a long journey down, we rang our order in from the M25 and picked it up on our way.

After 4 1/2 hours on the road, time for a little refreshment. This didn’t really touch the sides, but that’s ok, because I’ve had it 4 times this year already (hurrah for Untappd!)


Sadly there was a slight mix up on our order, and I ended up with a rather warm madras. It was nice, but not what I’d been looking forward to after battling the M1 for far too long. A Robinson’s Unicorn stood up to it fairly well, but it’s another case of NMH (needs more hops).


Very good curries and definitely worth a visit.
