The home of fine Indian and Pakistani cuisine in the heart of London's prestigious area of Knightsbridge - just a 2 minutes walk from HARRODS. It is one of the UK's oldest Indian and Pakistani restaurant providing a peaceful and refreshing ambiance for lunch and dinner and "any thing" in between. Shezan has been serving the finest Indian and Pakistani cuisine for over forty years and continues to offer an exciting selection of Indian and Pakistani favourites from the Menu and a’ la carte and its attentive and friendly service complements the comfortable candle-lit surroundings.
The traditional arches and Mughal paintings of this newly renovated dimly-lit eatery add a further touch of warmth to the contemporary furnishings and create a combination of refreshing and comfortable surroundings and reminds of cultural ties with Indo-Pakistan. The background music of traditional Indian classics adds a refined yet energizing romantic touch to the food we serve to our valued customers.

    Excellent ambience and very friendly service. We were excited reading the reviews, but we found the food probably a bit below expectations, relatively bland and not inspiring. Praise to the staff for a very professional and friendly approach

    Nestled in the bustling streets of London, Shezan stands out as a beacon of Indian culinary excellence. As a regular patron, I've had the pleasure of experiencing its offerings on numerous occasions, each visit reinforcing my belief that it is indeed the best Indian restaurant in the city. The atmosphere within Shezan is nothing short of enchanting. Upon entering, one is greeted by an ambiance that perfectly balances traditional Indian aesthetics with a touch of modern elegance. It's a space that invites relaxation and sets the stage for an unforgettable dining experience. What truly sets Shezan apart is the impeccable service. The staff are not only friendly but also exceedingly knowledgeable about the menu, offering recommendations that never fail to delight. Their attention to detail and genuine warmth make every visit special. Now, onto the pièce de résistance - the food. Shezan's menu is a masterful blend of traditional Indian flavors and innovative culinary techniques. Each dish is a testament to the chef's expertise, crafted with the finest ingredients and presented with artistic flair. The flavors are rich, authentic, and beautifully balanced, ensuring that each bite is a sensory delight. I find myself drawn to Shezan often, not just for the exceptional dining experience but also for the joy of sharing it with friends. It has become my go-to recommendation for anyone seeking a taste of India in London. Everyone I've taken there has been utterly charmed, often becoming regulars themselves. Shezan is more than just a restaurant; it's a celebration of Indian cuisine at its finest. Whether you're a seasoned aficionado of Indian food or a curious first-timer, Shezan promises an experience that will leave you longing for more. A true jewel in London's culinary crown.

    En arrivant au restaurant nous avons été charmés par l atmosphère très feutrée et joli décor. Quelle deception de goûter un mixed grill tikka plutôt sec. Et encore pire aucun de nos main courses n était savoureux. Nous connaîssons bien la cuisine indienne et le goût n avait rien d indien. De nouveau poulet sec comme réchauffé avec la sauce ou halal nous pensons. Le butter chicken n avait qu un goût de sauce tomate ! Pas de coriandre fraîche ni de goût subtil des épices.Meme les naans sont devenus secs très vite et le riz au safran également. Nous avons tous laissé la moitié de nos plats. Bref pour 317 euros a 4 cela ne vaut pas du tout le détour. Le rapport qualité prix est nul. Nous avons informé le personnel de notre grande déception.

    This restaurant is a real find. A bit difficult to locate but well worth the effort. Really nice relaxed setting and interesting decor. Our party was made to feel welcome on arrival and throughout the evening. Really good food. Interesting flavours. Decent portion sizes especially the rice dishes. Excellent service. I wish it was closer to where I live. Reasonably priced.
