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

Glad we booked a table as it was very busy. Staff managed well with the amount of people in. Food fantastic and portions just right size. Kingfisher draught lager very nice too. Very reasonable prices. Pickles, mains, naan breads and two rounds of drinks for 4 people £90. Can't wait to go back.

We have always used Solomons on and off and never really had a bad meal, but since the original owner came back, the food is absolutely perfect and the service is excellent every time. Keep it up ya doing a brilliant job

What used to be a really good Indian restaurant and takeaway has become a bit of an (expensive) joke. The tandoori prawns were as dry as, the sauces on the curries lacked texture and taste. £40 for two people? We could have eaten out with a far better standard of meal.

Used to be a regular here but when they changed hands we believe the service quality has lowered but don't get me wrong you get what you pay for and would recommend comment to a friend

Dear Mark S, unfortunately there was a genuine mistake when taking the order when we were notified of the error although we do not do deliveries a member of staff came out to replace the meal. Unfortunately people do have different palettes and we apologise if it was still not hot enough for your taste. Please note however we do... More
