Good Vegetarian Options
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 ambiance, good menu. In my view, the Mulligatawny Soup should be improved, but the mixed grill was excellent and very good value.

Found this Indian restaurant on Open Table, as that was the type of cuisine we wanted, within an easy walk of our hotel. The staff could not have been nicer, and the food was fantastic. A lot of lamb dishes, and seafood, with a range of spice/heat levels offered. Indian desserts were also very tasty. HIGHLY recommend.

The bhindi bhaji slapped. Mango Lassis were dank (good dank). Service was fire. Excellent date location - take your lover here and propose to them.

Sat next to 2 tables of one group constantly getting up and moving around, noise level very high. Disappointed with the quality of food, well below average and extremely disproportionately priced given the quality. Not my favourite. One redeeming feature was the staff, who were lovely.

Great food and service I intend to revisit this restaurant soon. I visited with a group of knowledgeable Indian eaters and everyone was impressed with how tender the meat was.

Standard of food was very poor. Instead of making fresh starter items to order, they were pre cooked and reheated, hence very dry with hard skin.
Main course had no taste and bland.
only Naan bread and Salad was ok.

We went for my Mrs Birthday. She enjoyed it so that’s what mainly counts. The food was great. I had asked for them to arrange a cake but they didn’t. The mocktails were below average and the juices were out off cartons. They should atleast use Shezan Mango juice rather than Rubicon.

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.
