Description: 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.

Went here last night for our works Christmas meal. The actual restaurant is beautiful, it is very modern, spacious, decor is stunning. Large spacious car park, accessable for wheelchairs too.

We had popadoms with side dips as our starters then main meal, rice and naans for main. The total cost for 9 people was £120 excluding drinks which is very reasonable.

Service is excellent, the food is gorgeous. The menu is a reasonable size and most dishes can be made mild, medium or hot which is great as you have the confidence of freshly cooked food.

For a Tuesday night is was extremely busy (we had booked for 6pm) so might be best to prebook your table.

Highly recommend a visit

I love this restaurant, one of my top favorites. The atmosphere is always friendly and bubbly. The owners are always interested in their customers and give their full attention on giving them the best visit. The only small problem I find is the waiters sometimes hover constantly around the table, this can become slightly annoying and uncomfortable. However when pointed out to the owner the problem is sorted. The food is excellent the best Indian food around! Ten out of ten.

We are regulars at The Shajan. It is consistently fabulous in every possible way.

The service is friendly and very efficient, the restaurant is very modern, spotlessly clean and has a great atmosphere.

The food is to die for, a wonderfully varied menu, really fair pricing and consistently delicious.....

People travel from miles around and I can understand why its fabulous.....

I visit this place with my partner two to three times a month and have done for the past three years. It's utterly fantastic and I've not once been disappointed. The food is so tasty I can't describe it other than anything short of the best curry house in the North West and beyond. I will never get bored of this place! Thanks Shaju and family. Rob.
