We have eaten here a few times now and take our friends too. We love the whole experience and all our friends praise us on finding such a great Indian Restaurant. From the moment we enter the place we are looked after and we love the fact that when we all have chosen our main meal, they bring a sample... More

Booked here as a last minute option after meaning to go to another place but discovered a few bad recent reviews so changed venue. We came here around 3 years once and enjoyed it so decided to give it another go. Friendly efficient service, pleasant surroundings however quite a lot of noise in the main room as it's rather open... More

I'm fortunate that most of the recommendations I get regards places to dine in, tend to be wonderful places, in terms of an overall experience. The ambience of a place, and the level of service offered and delivered, has a marked effect on your gastronomic enjoyment, in my opinion, and the Sands of Glenfield hits the mark, with the minimum...

The place Is modern and clean. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food presentation is excellent, however the food is not the best authentic Indian food in the area, and borders in being bland. Would recommend on the basis that the place has a great atmosphere, but better food elsewhere

It's been a while since I've been here and I thought I'd give it another try. The restaurant is pleasant enough, bright, modern and well laid out. The staff are very welcoming and efficient. The food (in my opinion) is it's weakness! Although I'm sure many people who like a typical "british" style curry will disagree, I found the food... More

Had a take away and chose their Mon-Thurs £10 deal which included a mixed starter but despite me explaining that I was vegetarian they wouldn't swap the meat items for veggie ones which showed a lack of empathy with the customer in my view. The packaging was very poor and caused quite a mess when attempting to serve it up.... More
