Visited Sands this evening with my husband and his brother's family plus our 4 year old daughter. Lovely welcome. Friendly, attentive service from the word go. Happy to provide a plain chicken and chips meal for my little one despite there just being a full Indian menu available. Huge portion size for a childrens meal. The other meals were lovely.... More

In Leicester we have a fantastic choice of Indian restaurants, some are fabulous and , of course some not so. This was our first trip to Sands in Glenfield ( a village about 4 miles out of town) which is surprising as we live only a mile or so away! I suppose we think that an out of town restaurant... More

This place supposed to be a Indian restaurant what I got is plain bland tasty food when you order your dish you get a taster of it well that means it's not cooked fresh if you like it nice and posh then go here but if you want proper Indian cuisine then go to the paddy Martinn 100 times better

Superb service and fresh, high quality food. Having a taster of the dish you order to allow you to decide on heat levels is inspired! Will be visiting again, soon!

From the warm welcome when I walked in, to when I left I felt 'looked after' without being intruded upon. They give you a small taster portion of your sauce to make sure you are going to like it, which is something which should be adopted by many more restaurants. The King Prawns in Kerala sauce was delicious by the... More

I was taken to this restaurant as part of my recent birthday present. Leicester must be the capital of Indian restaurants in the UK & this food was amazing - very authentic. Lots of real spices (not out of a packet !). When ordering you are offered a small taste of your choice so that you will know if its... More
