The warm welcome is always nice to receive when you enter a restaurant. The waiters were professional and always waited for us to eat first before taking our plates away. We had a little mains tester, which was different as no other restaurant has this service! If we wanted our mains to be spicer than they are able to add... More

went here as its local and after reading all the good reviews, I agree, food is fantastic, service was on the ball, Tetley beer nice and cold,,only down side, small one at that... all the seats are worn and have holes..but saying that, we will be going back as the food is worth it..

On their website they state “In these uncertain times whereby personal compromises become a necessity, we at Sand’s offer no such compromise” unfortunately my experience wasn’t to a high standard as the website would have you believe. Scoring: Value for money – 1.5/ 5 (poor for the food quality) Food – 2.5/5 Service - 0.5/5 Venue 5/5 Issues with the... More

Lovely food good service and nice surroundings!! Only criticism is with a sweet as frozen and microwaved - not the best. Ordered New York cheesecake came with strawberry ice cream Disappointed as cheese cake was very soft on boarder of sloppy. Wasn't charged for it. Shame.

Went here on a recommendation of my wife's friends and not to be disappointed very nice place lovely service and great food. 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. Luckily they open quite early at 5.30 but still we weren't first to arrive. There was also a lot of people waiting for take aways. The restaurant is spacious, uncluttered and... More

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.
