The restaurant was busy and we chose to go straight to a table. We were given a choice. The menu is what you would expect and the specials looked interesting. The meal was well cooked, service good albeit a little impersonal.the total bill was just under £50 and considering we also had wine, this represents good value, in my opinion.

i have been twice to Sharjan and both times its been fab. The decor is modern and spotlessly clean. The food is gorgeous and the choice of draught beer is great too. It is a little pricey however but not enough to put me off going back again. Over all i would say this is one of the best restaurants... More

1st time we have visited this one following reviews from friends. Decent indian, pretty good meals, however it was very busy, and it felt like the staff wanted you in and out so they could use the table again. The staff hover around too much and always asking if you want another drink. Food quality was good, choice was also... More

Very good food but they pack u in and it seems they need you to leave as soon as u finish to get another table in. Very loud and very busy. Lovely restaurant but the madness takes u away from your meal and its not a very nice atmosphere.

This restaurant is popular with a good reputation but each time I go I'm disappointed. Why is that? It's because they seem to think that they need to pack in as many people as possible and get rid of them asap. Always seems rushed and not allowed to enjoy the food and ambience - that's why I don't go very... More

Have been going to the Shajan for years and surprised that it has been reviewed so infrequently on Trip Advisor. Nothing ever changes - it simply is excellent. Great food and service with very good ambience and atmosphere. For a quality Indian restaurant, pricing offers very good value for money as well. Wise to book at peak times but even... More
