“A very good local curry house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

I've just visited Solomon's Lounge for a meal with my Dad and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The food was tasty and well priced. There may not have been a WOW factor but overall the meal was on par with any other I've had from an Indian restaurant in the region.
One stand out point for me was the service. The staff were quick, friendly and had a great knowledge of the menu.
Solomon's Lounge is a very good local curry house. I will definitely be returning!

Thankyou for your very flattering review of our restaurant. Look out for our Kingfisher promotion during July where we give a free bottle with every table of four that book . We look forward to you return.

“Awesome curry in Heaton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Had a great early curry on a Friday night with my daughter here. Great atmosphere and brilliant service, the waiters were friendly and attentive. Food was excellent. The menu is very extensive and what we really liked was the ability to order bowls of any of the various curries. This was great for my daughter who likes to order starters such as onion bhajis/samosas etc for her main course and have some sauce with them. Only criticism was that my chicken tikka dhansak could have had more chicken in it, but it tasted great.

Prices are excellent, £35 for 2 of us, we will definitely be going back !

“lovely food but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

The food was very delicious and the place looked lovely but the seating arangment was inpratical, we had to pass up our food to each other as there was no room for waiters. all though the food was outstanding it was a tiny bit expensive. overall a lovely place, lovely food just the seating arangment.

Your comments are very valid and at weekends our private booth is super popular. The very layout of the booth dictates the staff have access from the end of the table only . Apologies if this was an inconvenience. Other than that, sometimes guests in large groups share dishes making eating costs per head more affordable. Our main courses do start from £7.95 and portions are generous so perhaps we could point these out next time. Thanks again.

“A Teacup Of Rice - don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I am a large guy and have eaten literally hundreds of curry's all over the world. I don't expect anything approaching perfection or a gastronomic experience in a local Indian but this place is not remotely a good choice and doesn't deserve anything approaching more than 3 stars. I can only imagine people will give 80-100% marks for any old rubbish out of ignorance of what good British Indian food is and what else is available in Newcastle.

Soloman's food was adequate at best and they served me a tiny amount of rice. I took my mother there for her birthday (yep shes a child of the 60's and was brought up on curry in Sheffield) and I was thouroughly embarrassed.

My Kulfi was scraped off the bottom of the freezer .. defrosted and refrozen. My Tandoori main was burnt on one of those oh so early 90's sizzler cast iron "plates". It hadn't been anywhere near a tandoori oven either.

My partner and my mothers food were adequate but again thoroughly ruined by incredibly mingy portions.

I won't go there again.

Posting your review 5 months after your visit has meant that we never got the opportunity to invite you back in for a free meal to make up for your experience. We try our best to offer one of the best Punjabi eating experiences and being Newcastle's largest Asian restaurant chain with thousands of happy customers every month we pride ourselves with keeping standards high. On this occasion we failed to please you but would have invited you back straight away.
