Came here for a family members birthday in September. If I'm going for an Indian, we usually head over to Manchester! But we all really enjoyed our meal here at the Shajan! The service was great, food was good quality and not over priced! The place was very busy with a good atmosphere! It's the best Indian I've had outside... More

Nothing much wrong with the food or the cleanliness, but it was rush rush rush "curry in a hurry", put your glass down and its gone in an instant, never asking if you wanted another, couldn't get the plates etc of the table fast enough, it was quite obvious that they wanted us out as soon as possible to fill...

Disgusted with tonight's service! Over an hour late to be seated at table and then another 30min before mains arrived and after I had to notify them about it! No drinks order offered either throughout our entire time. We have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years with my dad when he visits from Iran and over that... More

Just returned from a fantastic meal at Shajan. All the party were impressed as not all of them had been before, the chicken tikka was very tender as was the lamb I believe. Service excellent didn't feel rushed at all. We will be back... Again

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.
