A new trendy Chinese restaurant opened on Shambles Street, Barnsley City Centre early September. It’s probably the most unique restaurant in South Yorkshire as it will serve authentic Chinese cuisine, chilli hot Szechuan dishes and even a variety of sushi. It is part of the Yama group of restaurants with the well-known, Yama Sushi bar being the flagship in Sheffield. The decor will attract the punters but it will be the food and service that will keep you coming back!

This is my second time visiting Red Ginger since it opened, it wasn’t the best service last time, but this time it is a different story, better service and faster, definitely will go back again. I can’t wait to see the second floor open with the new menu. yummmm!!!

Visited Red Ginger with my family as we are emigrating to New Zealand in the New Year. Food was absolutely beautiful, so much so that we have booked there for our final meal before we fly to the other side of the world!

I have been to Red Ginger three times now with friends who live in the area. Each time, the food has been amazing and the service has improved every visit! Can’t wait to go again when I’m next visiting!

I’ve Been to Red Ginger in Barnsley with groups of friends on a few occasions now. The food is consistently good and the staff are so helpful and polite. They can’t do enough for you and always make sure you have a great evening. Will definitely be back soon!  Thanks!

Fantastic night! We paid a visit to Red Ginger for the first time on Saturday night to celebrate a friends birthday and my own! the staff were so pleasant, even singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to us and treating us to a piece of cake each! I’m not really a fan of Chinese food but the others love it .I had a superb steak and tempura battered oninon rings – very, very nice!  However, after I sampled some of their dishes I’ve got to go back to try more!! Never thought I’d be converted to Chinese food but it was nothing like any Chinese I’ve tried before. A great atmosphere and can’t wait to go back and be a bit more adventurous with my choice!

I’m not a big fan of Chinese food but this was quite a surprise. It’s huge inside; the exterior is well lit and a rather long building with a well stocked bar. The staff are very friendly and helpful with regards to the menus and utterly efficient in delivery the courses quickly. They were also extremely nice to our children. I was not very adventurous with the menu, but can recommend crispy chilli beef, King Prawn in black bean sauce and unfortunately I cannot remember the others but it was all good. No complaints, thank you.

Red Ginger has been firm favourite of ours and we have been eating there for a number of months now (7 visits)

It offers everything a good Chinese restaurant should, an extensive menu with everyone’s favourite dishes including, black bean, garlic and chilly, and the dramatic sizzling dishes!

The best thing about Red Ginger is there extensive menu. If you’ve never tried Oriental food then I highly recommend a trip to Red Ginger, but bear in mind they stop serving at 12am.

I would also like to add that the service at Red Ginger is exceptional – The waiters and waitresses are in general extremely helpful and friendly.

I went here with my mum a few months ago to celebrate my getting into University. Their Diced Chicken lettuce wraps live on in my memory! They were fantastic. The other food was gorgeous, the service was impeccable; the staff friendly and polite. I have been told that this is a great place to go for a work night out or a Christmas do as they open till midnight at the weekend. The best thing I have with the place is the fact that it is in Barnsley Town centre, so if you want to drink 1st then you can pop into town before or even after you eat.
