Visited for a family birthday. We were rushed to our table even thought the restaurant was almost empty. Service was a bit slap dash but the food more than made up for it. Nice atmosphere too

Looking through the menu I just saw the classic style dishes, not many signature/original dishes. After our starters we had to wait half an hour before... More

I have been going to Solomons for years. Visited with friends on a Saturday night. Food and service was excellent as always. As far as I am concerned this is by far the best Indian food in Newcastle.
