Ordered a takeaway from Sands this evening and I can honestly say that it was the worst Indian I have ever eaten. Whilst the meat was well cooked, the food was incredibly bland. There was absolutely no flavour, the sauce tasted mote like tomato than curry. The most disappointing part of the meal was the chef's special king prawn dish.... More

A regular family favourite What puts this restaurant apart is the tasting of main dishes before service. You are a served a little portion of your main dish for you to try and can adjust spice/flavour/texture to your desire. Brilliant. At least you know what you're getting. Service is great. All the waiters are professional and pleasant. Food is good.... More

Having been a fan of Indian food for many years and eaten in many restaurants this knocks spots of all the rest. It has moved Indian dining on to a new level. Staff are friendly and helpful, Decor is modern and of a high standard. Orders are brought for you to taste and alter to personal taste. You will be... More

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 eaten far too much was surprised with the... 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
