Booked a table here for 8.30. We arrived shortly before and just after a group arriving without a booking who were told it was a 40 minute wait.. We were sent to the bar to have a drink and it was clear the whole place was very full.. After 20 minutes we asked how long it would be and were told the table would be ready shortly.

10 minutes later I went back to ask again and it was clear they had no idea we were waiting and our table had just been given to someone who arrived after us but complained just before. At this point I was given the buzzer that should have been given on arrival to tell us that the table was ready.

After a further 10 minutes (40 after we arrived) the Group without a booking were taken through and we left. The staff could not have been less interested or concerned about ensuring that their mistake was resolved.

The food looked nice as it was taken passed, but the service was shambolic. It is clear that the restaurant is just too busy, under staffed and poorly organised.

The Gate of India over the road was far more welcoming!

From the greeting at the door by the gent in full silk traditional dress to the giant naan breads everything was exceptional. The Himalayan starters and main courses are a must if you have never tried this food really tasty but not too hot. We have visited numerous times and each time has been as good as the last. Recommend that you book as it has always been busy which is always a good sign

The restaurant was recommended by the friendly people at the Premier Inn Chester. Good recommendation. It was a delicious meal, full of flavour. The atmosphere was good as the place was busy and lively. The food was excellent value too. Thanks for a great meal

Went saturday night 7pm without booking, but managed to be seated right away. Very friendly and quick. Orders taken within 5 mins even though really busy. Food was delicious and presented beautifully. Definitely recommend. :-)

We only just heard about the Barton rouge but apparently it has been open for 2 years. We booked a table for 2 on a Saturday and it was extremely busy do you can't just turn up. Good and service was smacking- best I've tasted in Cheshire! I thought it would be expensive but actually £40 for 2 is very reasonable.
