Always great food

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

There was absolutely nothing I could criticise about this restaurant. The welcome was first class! The service was first class! The food was first class, and liked the little touch where they bring you a tester of your meat and sauce to try when you order to be sure you like it, if not you can either add spice to... More

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
