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.

Always a delight to go here. The staff are always very friendly and polite. Good choice of dishes and sometimes they are happy to 'tweak' them if you want something a little different. There is always plenty of atmosphere and it is very popular. If you have to wait the lounge area is very comfortable and the house wine is... More

This restaurant is always very busy, which in itself is a very good sign. Excellent selection on the menu. Bar area is comfortable if a little cramped at busy times. This established has expanded over the years and I feel that it has maybe gone a little to far in that it has lost the intimate/romantic dining experience. There is... More

Wonderful food and service!!! Staff extremely pleasant and couldn't do enough, although after the 4th time of being asked how the food was I found it quite annoying. The breath sweets and warm towels were an excellent addition after the meal.

I was not happy to have to choose the food in the bar area and then move to the restaurant, especially as the table was already free. We are use to ordering from the same table you eat on. The restaurant design was nice. Location not too far from us. We only ordered a curry and our food turned up... More

Lovely meal, quick service but liked this as we were starving! Great service and even the children enjoyed the Korma which was perfect for them - not too spicy.
