Visited here recently and was looked after well by good and attentive staff. The food was very good and plenty portion- wise. Nice touch with bringing a sample of your main course should you wish to alter the sauce, not seen that anywhere else. Prices for poppadum's and a main- similar to most restaurants so reasonable value- I would visit... More

We have used Sands for years now both as a takeaway and a sit down restaurant, but the last couple of occasions we have been very disappointed when trying to order the mid week meal deal. A few weeks ago we called to order the deal and where told that because the restaurant was very busy we could not order... More

I had been recommended this restaurant by several friends and family of the years and eventually made it there and I must say it really does live up to expectation. The team / staff were very welcoming and I love the fact that you could try your main meal as a taster for the bring it out. I have just... More

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
