Indian
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.

Very nice restaurant and decor, service was good but overall think the food didn’t live up to the price tag. Maybe due to its location but even with a great offer was still very pricey

By far the best Indian Food I've had! Everything tasted so flavorful and authentic. I'm a very picky eater with high standards and this place nailed it. If you're in London and want amazing Indian Food with incredible Indian Decor to backup the experience, come to Shezan!

We are visiting and wanted some great London Indian food. We were exhausted from a long trip and wanted to be somewhere comfortable. The restaurant is downstairs and very cozy. They have a coat check if your coat is heavy or wet. Service was very attentive and friendly. The food was great and really hit the spot. I’d come back for sure if we had the time.

The granddad of all Indo/Pakistani restaurants in the UK!
Family owned for 5 generations and service to make you feel at home.
Truly the only choice for Indo/Pakistani food in all of Europe not just the UK!

Very good food and mood was great too.
Location is a little odd, tucked away in side street (not that it’s a problem), and prices are bit of a high side.
Overall good, would go again.

I had the discount from open table which made the experience amazing, but even if we didn't have the discount, the value for both the quantity and quality was absolutely amazing.

We usually go for a restaurant closer to us but thought it would be nice to try something new and this one was a very very very good choice. Everyone at the table loved all the food.

The decor is absolutely beautiful, clean and tidy. The service was also amazing, I never had rice served to me or my guests with silver service methods before and it was definitely something new I will remember and can use at work myself. Staff are very well trained, nice and approachable.

We will definitely visit Shezan again in the future. Guaranteed.

I thought that the food was exceptionally bad. The place has a generally odd feel, but that would have been OK if the food was acceptable. It was not. There is not a single item from the 4 starters that we ordered that I would recommend. We left after half finishing starters.

We booked a table for 7pm table for two. We had a busy schedule for the evening ahead of us, however once we got there we were told by the waiter the wait would be half an hour despite the fact that we had a booking for 7pm. Eventually we got the table for around 8 and was bitterly disappointed. Food was enjoyable but had to be eaten in a rush due to the restaurant’s inability to give a booked table. Wouldn’t recommend to book a table here.

Terrible service and food. The Christmas night reservation at 8 pm ended up being a wait till 9 pm and then food was not served till 10 pm. They ran out of almost every food item we tried to order. Total confusion and many customers complaining around us. They need to re-examine how they might be able to run their business.

Last minute reservation after 9pm. Quite expensive for what we got - perch in the fish curry wasn’t to my liking, paratha was overly oily. At the end my after eight came with a bite out of it - replaced immediately, but still, not a good look. Staff were very pleasant and attentive, restaurant was very decorative. Probably better if we went earlier in the evening
