Visited early on a Sunday evening. The place was very busy, a great sign. The food as ever was sublime. Very attentive service. Could not fault anything.

Had a meal here last week and it was excellent. Service very good, efficient and polite. Cloth tablecloths. Attentive waiters.Food was lovely, well cooked and plenty of it. I only have one criticism and that is there was too much garlic oil on the naan bread making it soggy, it's a bit more upmarket than the usual Indian restaurant with... More

The food here is Ok but, what I do not like abut this restaurant is that as soon as you sit down they want to give you poppadoms and within a few minutes they want you to order. We had at least 5 waiters come over asking us to order within ten mins of sitting down. It seems they want... More

Shajan never fails to provide excellent service no matter how bust they are. The food is outstanding, especially their garlic naan that are to die for. People come from far and wide to eat here for a reason.

We live well out of the area, yet had passed the restaurant several times over the years, so we finally decided to make the time and effort to go. We found the restaurant to have pleasant surroundings and a number of friendly staff. However we felt that some were slightly rude when serving both food and drinks. The menu had... More

Excellent food, usually have a takaway every couple of weeks and have not had a bad one yet., sometimes find it a little rushed if eating in, hence the takaway.

I can't find any fault with Shajan at all. From the warm and friendly greeting to the outstanding quality of food served, it's a exceptionally good Indian restaurant that makes for a great evening. I've visited with friends on many different occasions for differing events and each time I've had a superb evening. It's certainly the best I've visted and... More
