We are regulars here, either eating in (efficient, polite and accurate) or take away. My only gripe is that the restaurant has taken down the website so no more ordering on-line. The food is tasty, and consistent, the staff unfailingly helpful.

On the main A59 just before the Ribchester turnoff, this outstanding Indian restaurant leaves nothing behind in terms of choice, quality, service and overall dining experience. It is expensive but as a special occasion or celebration it is worth the price. Extremely popular and so recommend booking. Car parking in massive car parks but do get congested.

We booked for a family birthday, both food and service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble catering for everyone's dietary requirements. We've been coming back here for years. The best indian by far!

Firstly the food and the ambience were lovely, this Resturant has been around a while and you don't survive this long without good food and it certainly delivers on this. Having not been for a short while I was impressed with the décor and look of the place. The only slight drawback was that the staff seemed to be getting... More

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.
