We arrived on a Saturday to meet family, it was very busy with nowhere to sit in the bar area. Fortunately by the time everyone arrived we had managed to squeeze onto some seats. We moved to our table with waiters flying up & down trying to deal with the orders. We had to order our drinks 3 times &... More

We moved to Clitheroe two years ago and as connoisseurs of Indian food, we searched the Ribble Valley for the best. In our opinion, Shajan provides the tastiest Indian cuisine consistently at a reasonable price. The restaurant is large and can host a lot of people if needed. The waiters can be a little hasty with the removal of used... More

We have been using sharjan for take away treats for years and consistency makes us return. We have a couple of starters, shish kebab and onion bhargi which we share over a glass of vino, we put our main course in the bottom oven and sometimes do not eat it for four or five hours, which always tastes as good,...

Went for our first time after hearing great reviews. Service was a bit unfriendly and far too fast. Starter, main course and coffee within an hour. Not offered drinks throughout meal. Won't be back in a hurry.

A very good Indian in Lancashire. We like to try different Indians all over Lancashire but this is a restaurant we always return to. You cannot fault anything. The service is great, if you tell the waiters what you like they recommend a curry to suit you! If you want anything extra adding this is never a problem and if... 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.
