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!

Lovely meal, friendly staff, very nice surroundings, staff helpful and quick when supplying drinks, meal for four very tasty and reasonable, will definitely eat there again.
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
Great food service and atmosphere I would recommend this Resturant to everyone catered for all types and sizes of groups nothing is to much trouble
As ever excellent food and service, as ever. Perhaps time for some new table linen?Beginning to look a little tired. Thanks for a lovely eating experience.
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.
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
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. :-)
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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!
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
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.
Back to its absolute best. A faultless experience with excellent service both in the bar and at the table, and a delicious starter and main course
Been going to the sharjan for many years now....always a warm friendly reception and the best curries in town......great food...great atmosphere...highly recommended. Paul and Sandra .
Walked in to a beautiful homely environment. The service was excellent. The food is unquestionably tasteful and tantalising. It is definitely worth the money! Highly recommended.
Table booked online and worked well. Service was very good and there was a good atmosphere in the restaurant. The food was excellent and good value.
Food was brilliant couldn't be faulted, service was very good. Seated quickly and even got a happy birthday sing song! Definitely will be visiting again Thankyou
It's always fantastic food Service is outstanding All staff go that Extra mile to help and they are all pleasant We go regular we love it
The restaurant did not know this booking had been made. When booking made no reference was made to the specific menu - embarrassing for everyone
As fabulous as always. Attentive and friendly staff. Great food and lovely atmosphere. Xmas music still being piped through but found it hilariously funny 😂
Very good service. Very good meal. Looked after by everyone. Would go again. Went with my wife and three children and everybody enjoyed it. Thanks.
Very good as always. Staff always helpful and polite. Again if something is not on the menu they are more than apply to accommodate you if they can.
Really good meal, brilliant service. The restaurant was very busy, but everyone was given lots of attention and the food, as always, at the Sharjah , exceptional.
Too many waiters in the same area not knowing what each other's area was!! Food ok but cold. A woman who I think was the owner looked miserable and very unwelcoming. Toilets disgusting.
The food and service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Just watch out for the slippy floor tiles. Well worth a visit though.
Excellent food and service. Waiters very attentive. No delays in being seated or in getting food. Will definitely make this one of our regular outings.
Really nice meal, will definitely return for another lovely curry. Hanging nans are recommended and their mango lassi was to die for! Not to be missed.
