Surprised to see a few negative reviews to be honest - apart from one blip last year when there was some staff changes we have always had a 5* experience here. We had a meal for two on Valentines Day and it was as good as ever. Straight from work and table booked early (5.30pm) before the rush. First ones... More

This used to be a fabulous restaurant but after some bad meals here I left it for a few years and decided to give it one more try. The shami kebab I ordered was just like a Spam fritter without the taste and the Chilli & garlic lamb had no flavour except chilli. It was as if the chef just... More

We first visited Solomon's as a family group some two weeks ago. The food was very good if you could get it. Out of our party, two did not get their Rice until asked for, another's Rice came very cold, One main meal did not come until asked for & one main meal was cold. I will say that the... More

The takeaway meal ordered by my daughter contained a Peshwari naan instead of a plain naan. This resulted in her having a very bad allergic reaction from one small mouthful. The manager promised to investigate and get back to my son in law. Needless to say he never did so this very serious mistake has probably been swept under the... More

Dear Helen, we can assure you this incident has not been put to one side, we take matters such as these very seriously. Having spoken with the manager he has advised he did attempt to contact him via the number provided on 3 occasions however the calls were not answered or returned. We have requested him to contact him again... More

Four of us dined at Solomons last week to celebrate a family birthday. The service on entering was quick and ordered our drinks instantly. Sadly the service of the food was very poor. We ordered one chicken Kashmiri, one plain chicken curry, one lamb biryani and one chicken biryani. First of all two rice dishes arrived with nothing else, followed... More

Got a take away couple of weeks ago which wasn't great. Thought I'd give it another go. Unfortunately it wasn't any better. I actually didn't eat it. Chicken tikka was so dry I couldn't swallow it. Onion bhaji was over cooked and dry as sticks and nan bread was terrible. If I didn't know better I would have thought it... More

Really lovely food, you won't be disappointed. Nice atmosphere and furnishings. Only downside was that they charged us more than the menu said. But we were going to tip anyway so it worked out about the same.

I have been here many of times for birthdays, take aways, and couple dining. The staff are always lovely and friendly. This restaurant provides the best Indian food in Newcastle! The chicken korma is very nice ! Would definitely recommend!

Been coming here for years now. Visited mid-year following some management changes and I would say it was average at best and needed some attention - cold dishes and poor service. However, visit before Xmas was fab and they are back to their best with a bang. We tend to order the same dishes and all the dishes this time... More
