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.

It's been at least 12 months between this visit and my last visit and suddenly I remembered why.....50 mins wait between the first course and the main course is unacceptable. As efficient as ever in accepting the business on a busy Saturday (it's always busy on Saturdays) and finding a table then serving the first course ....thereafter it feels as... More

We have been to several Indian restaurants, however we have always found that Shajan is the best! The quality of the food is outstanding and at a relatively reasonable price. The ambience of the restaurant is second to none. We have been here umpteen times and have always felt welcomed as the staff are always cheerful and making sure that... More

The food here is excellent and the atmosphere great. I think they need to improve staff communication as we were asked four times if we had ordered & if we wanted drinks. One member of staff was really rude and actually sighed when we asked for another drink! What should have been a 5* is 4 because of this.
