Birthday Treat !

Celebrating any birthday with 11 friends can be challenging; getting a table, service, etc. BUT NOT AT SANDS!! They kindly offered a later than normal sitting and did not make us feel rushed when it was time to leave (past mid-night). The quality of the food was excellent having drank plenty and... read more

I was recommended this restaurant by two of my friends. I was told it was very good and they bring your dish out for you to try before you order. We ordered the sizzling starter for two and it was rubbish. Two tiny bits of chucking a tough kebab and some kind of sauce I've never seen or tasted before... More

Forget what the terrible and poor reviews say. My family and I have been coming here for years and each time I walk through the door my drink order is already being prepared without having to say anything! The staff, atmosphere and staff are all amazing and the food is to die for. We sit in and takeaway and have... More

We visit Sands frequently at least once or twice a month, either to eat in or takeaway. The service is always exceptional and the food is lovely. Would recommend to anybody.

Our friends from the area booked this for us all as we were keen on having a curry as Leicestershire is one of the best places too. We were not disappointed, you are greeted by friendly staff and the menu was a good selection of well knows dishes and chef specialities. I ordered the chicken hydrabadi which was lovely -... More

Visited here recently and was looked after well by good and attentive staff. The food was very good and plenty portion- wise. Nice touch with bringing a sample of your main course should you wish to alter the sauce, not seen that anywhere else. Prices for poppadum's and a main- similar to most restaurants so reasonable value- I would visit... More

We have used Sands for years now both as a takeaway and a sit down restaurant, but the last couple of occasions we have been very disappointed when trying to order the mid week meal deal. A few weeks ago we called to order the deal and where told that because the restaurant was very busy we could not order... More
