Not Shajan Indian & Bangladeshi Restaurant, not Shajan Contemporary South Asian Cuisine – just Shajan. The name speaks for itself, and this restaurant certainly has made a name for itself, winning the Bangladesh Caterers Association best caterer of the year award two years in a row thanks to the uncompromising ethos of owner Mohammad Ali. It is indeed true that some of the curries on offer at this world-class Indian restaurant can sting like a bee, but there are plenty of colourful South Asian delicacies on the extensive menu that float like a butterfly. Located in a fairly remote part of the picturesque Ribble Valley, along Longsight Road north of Blackburn and best reached via Mellor or Clayton-le-Dale, this stylish 200-plus seater restaurant is definitely worth the trip – provided you have a booking!

Excellent service very attentive staff and the the food was spot on Good value and will be going again soon Wide choice on menu excellent
Staff where very friendly and polite and the food was amazing and served with nice time apart from starters to main . Will definitely return
My first trip to Sharjan and I wasn't disappointed. Staff were fantastic and service was fast but not rushed. Food was excellent and great value. Will definitely be returning.
Great food and great staff. Everything was just perfect. We will be back again soon The highlight was the King Prawn Puri starter - really delicious
We had heard good things about Shajan and had been meaning to visit for a while. We managed to get a table for 6 with a few hours notice on a Sunday, and were very happy with the food, service, and value for money. Excellent experience and we will definitely be back. Highly recommended!
The food was first rate a really good experience of curry cuisine. The waiters although excellent although asking for drinks orders as we were shown to the table. Our visiting friends who are keen on spicy foods thought that the Shajan was one of the best.
My husband And I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Shajan. The food was authentic and delicious. The service couldn't be faulted and there was a lovely atmosphere, even on a Monday evening.
by far the best food I have had in a long time, service is amazing and the staff are polite and friendly I can not recommend anywhere as good as Shajan
Really enjoyed the food, plenty of it & really tasty! Staff were very polite & nothing seemed too much trouble. Would definitely come again to the Shajan.
Another really good evening spent at this restaurant. Introducing another American colleague to the delights of a Shajan curry! Food, ambience and service all excellent as usual.
Great food and excellent service. Can't fault the Shajan in any way. Would recommend we will be returning in the very near future. Superb experience.
Slightly slow on the service of the main meal but it was very very busy. The food was lovely when it did come and everything was polished off. If you don't mind a loud bustle environment it's perfect food for a social gathering. If you want quiet and peaceful, don't go just before Xmas. :-)
good welome good service perhaps a little to quick my chicken tika masala source nice chicken dry and ,all in all not the best but had much worse .To rushed to sum it up feel as though they want to get you out. had better value for money in indan restaurants cheers mr thomas.
Hi, Mohammad Ali, This was my first time visiting your restaurant with my work colleagues and It was lovely food, so I am returning in August with my Husband and looking forward to it!!! Thank you Mrs. Louise Waddington from Kelbrook, Lancs
They were super busy and at first asked us to go to the bar area for a drink, however within 10 minutes we were seated. The service was excellent throughout the evening and food was lovely. Can't fault it! My favourite Indian!
Fantastic food and fantastic service as per usual at the Shajan. I will be finding another excuse to go again as soon as I can!
Had a wonderful meal , food was plentiful and hot ! cannot fault the service. My only problem was where we were sat, it was in a draft and we had a long table and would have preferred a round one. But apart from that it was perfect.
A very nice place to go. Very reasonable prices. Quality of food very good. Dishes that I usually order from other restaurants had different taste. I felt that vthere was to much coriander in each dish for my liking otherwise the review would be a 6
This s an amazing restaurant and I've been many times. I have always had top service and amazing food and would recommend for a romantic meal for two or a large dinner party always, always top service x
This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the north west. The restaurant has been busy on the last two occasions we have visited. Despite this, the food is consistently very good. It is reasonably priced too.
Service, staff and food excellent. Staff very engaging without being too much in your face and were able to answer queries without hesitation. No pressure put on us, we were able to enjoy the evening at our pace.
excellent choice and good value for money in great comfortable surroundings - I missed an error on the bill which they found several minutes after I paid and corrected it - honest people - great food
very pleasant staff with a lovely atmosphere, and the food was even better. Never been before as this was recommended by a friend and I'm glad they did, because we will defiantly be returning.
Excellent food, they were able to modify my choice without a problem. Whilst it was busy when we were there the service was good and we were not rushed away from our table.
Visited for a special birthday treat. Excellent Food, service and atmosphere ! This is one of many visits and we're not going to break the tradition as the standard is always excellent.
Food and service were excellent. However it all felt too rushed. Came here as a burthday treat for my husband and we were served 3 courses in leaving in less than an hour. Disappointed and not what I would expect from a restaurant with such a good reputation.
Food and service fantastic! We will go there again and again! Not overly spicy and we were given plenty of time between courses to relax and let the previous course go down!
Fantastic easy to use booking system on line and food was excellent when we got there as all the reviews had said! Fast service and good atmosphere lovely for my mums birthday.
Great place great staff great food'. Great service. Not much more I can say than that . Would recommend to anyone who asks , it will become a regular eating place .
Quick friendly service. Food was delicious as always. As soon as people leave, the tables are cleared and reset ready for the next guests. Best place around to go for a curry!
Lovely food, buzzing atmosphere, always quality ingredients you can taste the difference. We have been many times before and will continue to visit when we fancy a really good meal out.
Amazing food, lovely service would recommend to go it's great place. Lovely atmosphere for valentines evening. Price is reasonable. Thanks for great experience will definitely be back in the future
Great service and wonderful food. Rang to say that we'd be late - absolutely no problem at all. We couldn't finish and they wrapped what was left to take home.
Excellent as always. Food second to none as was service, especially considering how busy the place was. Seated and served as soon as we walked through the door. Highly recommended.
On holiday in the area, restaurant was recommended. Friendly staff, busy restaurant. Food good, decided not to have starters as often this can be too much to eat. Couldn't finish main course but very tasty.
Always a very busy restaurant which speaks volumes as to the constantly high standard. The food as always was delicious. The service was good if not a little hurried. We look forward to our return.
the food at shajan was excellent and the service was very good and the atmosphere was very good, the waiters were very attentive, all in all an excellent time
Never fails to deliver. I love this place. Best place to get Indian food in the area bar none. Highly recommended. Only problem is, too far from my house!
Great food and atmosphere as always with lovely staff, visited on Valentines Day and was served promptly with table ready straight away - our favourite Indian by a mile!
We had a wonderful evening meal in super surroundings to celebrate sons 21st. Nothing was too much trouble. Quality of the food is simply the best in the area.
Good food. Great place 2 go with family.. do a great menu.. good atmosphere. Not too far too travel for us.. goid value for money.. good all round place
Nice atmosphere, nice staff, extremely good food and good value. What more could you ask for and on a cold wintry night the restaurant being full says a lot.
Excellent food as always when I visit this restaurant. Fresh ingredients, freshly prepared makes such a difference from the reheated, microwaved fodder often served up elsewhere. Committed, friendly staff despite restaurant being very busy.
Absolutely fantastic. From arrival to leaving the staff could not have been more polite and helpful. We weren't rushed and the food was amazing. We will be back.
Our meal, the service and the atmosphere were superb as usual in this excellent Indian restaurant. Shaju is a great host and always makes you feel extremely welcome.
First time at this restaurant. Myself and my friend really enjoyed out good, the service and overall experience. Would recommend and hope to return with my husband soon.
Fantastic food and amazing atmosphere would definately recommend. Been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and we have never been dissapointed. Best curry house around.
Perfect food friendly service nice atmosphere - really pleasant contemporary surroundings - all staff are helpful & attentive- not surprised that a Sunday evening was so busy!
Excellent overall. Service and food excellent. Staff friendly and dont try to rush you out the door. Very clean and an attentive service. Defo be going again.
Excellent, the food was delicious and well served. I like the restaurant views over the ribble valley from the room at the far end of the restaurant.
