About Shajan

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!

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.

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. :-)

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!

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 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.

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!

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.

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.
