It's a very chilled out place but busy if that makes sense no rush could've stopped at the table all night. Definitely go here again as prices was good service was good food was good very nice.

Very nice restaurant lovely ambience. Staff are very customer friendly. Very impressed that you are offered a taster of your meal choice just in case it's too spicy or not spicy enough. Always book in advance as it is a very popular restaurant.

Everything about Sands is amazing. The menu is good and varied but if you want something else, just ask. My daughter, husband and I went after a matinee theatre.

TripAdvisor worked a treat. Sands provided me and my colleague a properly tasty curry. My pili chicken starter was well flavored. Main dish of chicken tikka hyderabad also very good. Staff were attentive and friendly. No wonder they were still busy fairly late on a midweek night.

My boyfriend and I was looking forward to a nice curry, we had never been here before. We got asked to moved tables in the middle of our starters, the drinks we ordered came after the starters came out. The staff are not very friendly or approachable. We will not be visiting again as we was not impressed and upset... More

The best Indian resultant in Leicester! We frequently visit and always have a superb meal! Fantastic quality, really tasty and at a good price. The customer service is second to none, nothing is a problem so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant :-)
