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!

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!
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.
Went for my birthday with my children. Amazing food delivered by friendly staff who provided a relaxed atmosphere without being rushed. Would definitely recommend this Restaurant.
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. :-)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Perfect food friendly service nice atmosphere - really pleasant contemporary surroundings - all staff are helpful & attentive- not surprised that a Sunday evening was so busy!
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.

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.
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.
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
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
