Four of us visited this restaurant this weekend and it was lovely. Very fast service and lovely food. The manhani chicken is delicious! Great atmosphere and lots of parking. I would definitely recommend this place.

Eat in or takeaway, consistently good. Been coming here for years and not had a bad meal yet. By far outshines other similar restaurants in the area.

Very enjoyable meal but it took a while to arrive. Had the King Prawn special curry with Pilau Rice. Very nice. Good job we ordered some Peshwari Naan to nibble on while waiting for the main event. Going again tonight!!!

This place is always busy and for good reason. Its probably the best Indian in the North west. The food is always of a high standard whether you eat in or have a take away . We keep going back and its been a favourite of ours for over 10 years.

Second visit here, reluctantly on my part as the service was average to say the least. This time much improved but still lengthy waits for drinks to be ordered and served. All starters mains superb.

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.
