About us

Mr Ali has been in the Curry business since 1980 and established Shajan Indian Restaurant in 1992. It started off as a small 85 seater set in the picturesque Ribble Valley.

Due to its increased popularity the restaurant had to be extended three times to its current 205 capacity excluding the lounge. It has been nominated and won the BCA best indian restaurant in the north west twice in a row. The Shajan motto is not to compromise on quality, service and value for money.

    Shaju the proprietor and his chef of long standing prepare their own spices to flavour good quality, fresh produce for their extensive menu. The food is served by efficient, friendly staff in a relaxing atmosphere in the comfortable, recently refurbished, stylish restaurant. The bar is well stocked, the meals reasonably priced and the ambience is vibrant which all contribute to a dining experience well worth repeating.

    Just go ... Everything is excellent! We've been having takeaways each week for 20 years. We also dine in on occasions. We feel like part of the family and you'll never see a more hardworking family and staff. Food is outstanding and the service is the second to none.


  • Testimonials

    We always enjoy our visits here as it is so consistent. We visited the Tuesday evening between Christmas 2015 and New Year and were seated and had drinks quickly, menus and orders taken promptly and shown to our table. I had my long time friend from Bolton with is on this visit and we all agreed that it was a great dining experience. The Tandoori Mixed Grill main that I and my friend had were very tasty and filing.

    As ever we will be back again soon but as I had not posted a review since 2012 about this great eatery I thought it well worth doing another.

    Having passed this restaurant many times on our way home we always threatened to give it a go and now we have. So sorry it took us so long to try. We went on Sunday afternoon and how happy were we. Six of us went and had their Sunday lunch menu and the food was of excellent quality and so well cooked with excellent portions with nan bread thrown in. The seating area is superb with comfy seating before having your meal that makes you not feel like not wanting to move. One of the best and one we will now frequent.
