About Us

In 1996, Shozna first opened its doors in Strood, on the borders of the historic city of Rochester. It's Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine met with huge success and received numerous awards at national and international level.

A second Shozna was opened in Maidstone Road, Rochester in 2005, where it maintained its successful offering of a unique culinary experience.

Shozna is now solely based in Rochester where the focus is on providing you with the excellence you would expect only from select restaurants in cosmopolitan city centres.

Shozna has evolved into a restaurant which offers you a choice of contemporary Asian cuisine with a choice of settings: we can offer you the more casual ambience of the ground level dining room, vibrant and full of energy, or the elegant charm and tranquillity of the upper dining room.

Our Executive Chef Jamal Ahmen (known as Jay) and Restaurant Associates continuously endeavour to improve and redefine traditional recipes using only the finest ingredients. The emphasis is on exacting quality and the masterful fusion of the traditional with a modern approach to culinary flavours. A passion for reinventing and innovatory thinking frees us from adhering to the traditional so we can offer a more modern conception of Asian cuisine.

Shozna has become a neighbourhood fixture and destination that deserves its popularity and reputation - a community jewel in the heart of Rochester.
