We visited as a group from work and the food was great. We all order a mix grill but they managed to get it all out on time and everyone was happy.

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic meal with poppadoms, Aloo Saag, Garlic Naan, Pilau Rice, Chicken Korma, Chicken Biryani, a Cobra and a J2O each all for less than £40. Everything was beautifully cooked and there was something on the menu for all curry fans. I especially recommend the Aloo Saag and the Chicken Biryani, the latter of which... More

It was very busy on our arrival so it is obviously very popular place to dine however it did quieten off a little later on. The service... More

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.
