What People are Saying
“A Great Find”
“Shezan was recommended to me by one relatives and since I was in Edinburgh, they said I have to go here for food. The food was tasty, the environment was chilled and the staff was very friendly.
All the food was served taking into consideration our needs and taste. The restaurant has taken all safety measures including sanitising the table before we start.
Thanks to Rajesh who was helpful in recommending the right dish for us.”
“I must say the food was indeed delicious. I am particularly picky about my food but the food at Shezan was tasty. The Naan bread was perfectly cooked and soft and their lamb Karahi was rightly flavoured. Must try their chicken Rogan Josh for the spices used.
Special thanks to Jay and Shreya who were humble and highly professional. They took all care in terms of safety as well as served us generously.
Great work guys”
“Very, very nice food!”

Covid wise they gave u a sanitiser for ur table so really good.
Cudnt write enough good really I really recommend this place.”
“Freshly Cooked Food”
“We had a delicious 2 course meal. The food was fresh and extremely tasty. I would particularly recommend the chicken Jaipuri. Additional health and safety measures have been put in place due to the pandemic.
We will defiantly be returning next time we are in Edinburgh. Thank you to Rajesh for your being a very attentive server.”
