If you are looking for quality Indian food in pleasant surroundings this is it! The taster is an excellent idea and helps distinguish this from the competition (well this is Leicester so you have plenty to chose from!). It can get busy with large family parties on Friday's and Saturdays so booking is essential at peak times. I have been... More

Had a meal here on saturday 5th April 14. Visiting the area for a racing weekend we had seen this place on trip advisor and the reviews were excellent. They were not wrong. The food is beautiful. Service was quick and attentive. The waiters bring you a sample of your meal to try before they bring it to you so... More

Had made a booking on a busy mother's day evening when the restaurant was fully booked. Appeared very short staffed which was later confirmed by the waiter/manager. I did feel sorry for them as they seemed to be struggling. At one point no waiter in sight for over 5 mins in a packed restaurant. All i wanted was some water.... More

Leicestershire is blessed by a superb range of fine restaurants serving food with origins in all parts of the Indian sub-continent. We are rather spoilt for choice. The food in Sands is excellent, in reasonable range there are four restaurants which are to my taste a bit better, but hundreds not as good but still very acceptable. You will not... More

11 members of our family celebrated my daughters 21st birthday at this restaurant and I have got to say we were all blown away by the standard and quality of the food. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the decor and cleanliness was second to none. I highly recommend a visit. Fabulous place with fantastic food

Simply excellent. Booked for the 9.00pm sitting which in hindsight was too late for us so we'll go for the 7.30pm next time.

Friendly and attentive service, great menu choice but most impressively you are presented with a pre-sample of your dish to taste before being served up in case you wish to have more spice added. Highly recommended.

I like eating here (having been several times) and it's one of my favourite indian restaurants in Leicester. I enjoy fairly mild but non creamy curries and they are very good at creating what you ask for, including bringing out a taster of the sauce prior to the meal itself. Have found their recipes to be different but still nice... More
