“wonderful food”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

We visited Solomons lounge when it first of all opened but not again until Sunday. What a vast improvement all round, food outstanding, on par with Solomons on West Road which is our favourite of all indian restaurants including those high calibre ones in London. The ambience and setting is lovely. Service was super, the chap that served us couldnt have done anymore for us. But... the smell in the toilet/area needs addressing, there was a stench of drains that evening. If sorted we will be back.

Thank you very much for your recent review it is really appreciated by all the staff at Solomon's Lounge. With regards to the issue raised we have now addressed the matter of the drains and have laid new pipe work in order to prevent the small reoccuring.

“Wonderful First Visit!”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

Following to the incredible reviews, we headed to Chillingham Road on Saturday evening to beat the crowds (it later filled up to near full capacity). The staff were enthusiastic (and guessed correctly that we heard about them via Trip Advisor- they clearly pay attention to feedback) and offered to make recommendations. The dishes - especially the almond butter- is the best I have tasted. My Bengal Mirch Dupiaza spiced perfectly (not overpowering the delicate herbs), as was another lamb speciality dish.

Three mains, with drinks and the poppadom starter (they charge about £4 for a shared tray) amounted to a little over £40. Great experience, warm service. Don't be put off by the exterior- the restaurant décor is rather opulent! I think have just found my new favourite Indian!

“Fantastic Curry, Fabulous Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Bit of a suprise to find a really good curry house so close to home. The food was fantastic, we all had mixed kebab starters with popadoms, the chef cooked me an extra spicy chicken bhuma, which is as good as I have had in India!

Drinks prices were very reasonable, the staff were very attentive and made us feel really welcome, explaining the food and options very well.

I have definately found my number one curry house and will be back very soon.... Wish they did home delivery!!!!

Had 2 takeaways and had to visit the restaurant. Great friendly service, extremely welcoming. Food consistently good. Currently my favourite in Newcastle. They've got a winning formula.
