Really really good.

Possibly one of the top 10 Curry houses in Leicester. I've been a couple of times & it's always been good.

I've been here on a few occasions and it never disappoints. This time it was for a friend's birthday so we were a big party. You're always made to feel welcome and all the waiters are very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. There's s great choice of starters...however, they are huge so be warned if you're expecting a little... More

went here on a works night out, the bar area is nice a light and ample comfy seating for all, clean and friendly staff with a wide range of drinks on offer. once shown to our table we were a little squashed but managed all the same. ( maybe for larger groups a better lay out should be thought of.... More

As always great food, good service all in a pleasnt ambience. Particulafly like the taster of the main course to determine spice level. Always good and highly recommended. And it was open on a Sunday evening

Set meal for 4. Plenty to eat, good service, attentive to all needs. Politely quietened down a group of rugby supporters enjoying their night out. Good atmosphere

Excellent quick stop for a curry. Will definitely return. Only down side was that chicken tikka had been pre cooked so was over done and a bit dry. Loved the idea to bring a pre service taste of the main dishes ordered to check it will be to your liking.

I chose this restaurant for its location being my local indian and was struck by how good it is. The staff were very polite and friendly and on ordering our food told us they would softly bring out tasters. This is a great idea as they brought out samples of your curry sauce to taste and make sure you were... More

We went as family of four adults on Sunday evening. The place was quiet. We ordered our food and waited while having our drinks. The starter was ok but the authentic Indian taste was not there. This should have been warning! The waiter bought out our dishes in four small tasters to try – first time I have come across... More

Myself and my brother popped down from Glasgow to visit our father and on the first night we had a very good meal in sands of glenfield. The food was all incredibly tasty. A few poppadoms and dips to kick off while we waited on our starters of lamb cutlets, cinnamon duck and tandoori duck...all very nice indeed and no... More

We visited last Saturday (25th April) with some friends and sadly wouldn't go again. We had heard good reviews about this place but were disappointed. from the wait for food, to the actual food nothing was particularly good. We had to send several items back that weren't up to scratch and then we were over charged for drinks we hadn't... More
