“Excellent Service and Food”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Arrived here on Saturday of Easter Weekend (group of 4) without a reservation to find the restaurant was very busy. The waiter told us he would have a table within 15 mins and showed us to the nice bar area - none of us thinking the 15 mins would be accurate but within this time we were shown to a table and swiftly served popadoms.
Starters and mains followed in good time and were lovely - all four of us really enjoyed the food. Service throughout was good although they seemed a little put out when I asked them to pack up our left overs but it soon came out in foil trays and was equally delicious the next day.
Only slight draw back was the charcoal smoke levels in the restaurant - the smoky curry smell pentrated all our clothes!

“best Indian ever”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I visit Chester on a regular basis to see friends and every time we eat here. It is by far the best Indian food I have had. The quality is consistently high, service is good and the price is spot on.

“Its OK!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Have been thinking about visiting for a while as i pass it to and from work and it always smells lovely. On arrival we were shown to a table b friendly staff. Unfortunately they soon became a little too attentive. We ordered Poppadoms and whilst we were eating these we were approached on 3 separate occasions by 3 different waiters wanting to take our mains orders, i did get a bit fed up of having to tell them that we would order when we were finished, they didnt listen and in the end we gave up and ordered!! Main meals were huge and so a bit off putting, though fairly tasty to be fair. I was a bit miffed when the bill came though as i had been charged for a far more expensive bottle of wine than we had had. I pointed this out and they put it right, but then how many people check their bills and dont just pay the total. Its OK but there are better Indian restaurants around....and make sure you check your BILL!!!

“Barton Rouge 'used' to be our favourite...”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

...for lovely curries and a fun night out. Yes, it's a wee bit noisy and fairly chaotic at times – but we were able to live with that. What we can't live with is we've recently found out the health and hygene rating is a 'one'. A one! The worst!! This was a real surprise – considering the standard of the food. I guess we should be lucky we never got food poisoning from their lovely curries before!!!

“Be Warned”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I’ll start with a positive, the food was ok, but not as good as expected. We had booked for a party of 25 so you would expect that the restaurant would be able to cope. We were directed to the bar area to find the drinks very expensive. After approximately 1 hour we were escorted to our tables. After a further 30 minutes we were asked if we were ready to order. After Poppadoms and starters we waited for approximately 70 minutes before the main meal arrived. This is where the chaos started, waiters shouting across the tables to establish who ordered each type of meal. Once the dish arrived on your table you had a further wait for your rice. For most, this arrived as a double portion on a single plate to share. Ok if the person next to you had ordered the same, not good when passing across tables. I would expect the meal to be delivered complete, not waiting or sharing. This restaurant needs to manage the customer’s expectations on arrival. If you’ve planned anything else for the evening, you may need to arrive a couple of hours earlier than planned. Be warned, Expensive Drinks, Chaotic Service & Long Wait Between Courses
