Description: We offer authentic, quality Indian Cuisine in Blackburn, Lancashire...
We offer authentic, quality Indian Cuisine in Blackburn, Lancashire. Established in 1992 we have an unrivaled reputation for both quality and customer care. Whether you're looking for a venue for your next special occasion or quality Indian food - you'll always find a fast, friendly service waiting for you.Set in the picturesque Ribble Valley the Shajan is an award-winning restaurant. It started off as a small business holding only 96 customers. However its popularity lead to its gradual expansion over the years and it is now able to accommodate up to 205 customers. The restaurant itself is split into 3 rooms enabling it to cater for private parties and large functions without losing its intimacy or atmosphere. Its modern decor, luxurious setting and spacious car park have attracted a wide range of customers including celebrities, some of which arrive in helicopters. The chefs' come from all over South Asia, so the restaurant is able to offer a varied cuisine, and the large number of regular South Asian customers is a testament to the foods authenticity. We believe the restaurant's reputation is our best accolade as it is built purely on word of mouth. The Shajan's emphasis on quality, customer service and above all its continual drive for improvement, have all lead to its success.

Food good but very rushed.

This restaurant has been going for years, and it was on route home from a wedding rehearsal that we decided to try it again. There were five of us and the gentleman showed us to a round table. I popped to the toilet to find when I got back the table vacant and everyone moved to around the corner... read more

Food quality average, atmosphere zero but by far the most disappointing factor was the lack of hospitality and the way we were hurried to our table and then pestered to leave our table to go and sit the overcrowded noisy bar as soon as we had eaten our last mouthful. My husband and I had traveled to Blackburn to meet... More

I live in Blackpool and have been to this restaurant over a period of two years. The quality of the food and the service is outstanding. The staff are friendly, accommodating and professional; the food is excellent. My visits have always been mid-week, so I cannot comment on weekend service. I have no hesitation, given my two year experience of... More

It's just not like it used to be. Very noisy, poor quality Naan bread, overcooked rice. Greasy main courses, soggy uncrisoy bhaji's. Would not return. Wouldn't surprise me if there's a rack of microwaves in the kitchen. Sorry but this restaurant hasn't evolved, it's devolved...

Lamb sali boti... The best curry I've ever had. The staff are great the manager/owner makes a point of coming to each table to ask if everything is ok. Reasonably priced and excellent food.

Well.. I'll start with a compliment ..the decor is nice. Other then that the staff was very rude unhelpful and a smug attitude. We asked for out mains to come separate from the starters they didn't ?? They couldn't wait to serve us and get rid, they over charged us by £12.50 and when corrected there was no apology or...

Chose the shajan for a meal because our usual restaurant is closed due to Ramadan. We were greeted by the manager who didn't even try to hide his disappointment when we chose to go straight to our table rather than go to the bar area for drinks. Once seated we asked for table water and 3 glasses which didn't go... More
