Went in to open a bank account and I was very happy by the Banker that helped me, she was very friendly and i wasnt expecting for the process to be completed as quick as it did.

One of the reasons why I joined. Friendly, reliable, helpful service. I love the fact staff hate seeing customers waiting and they do their utmost to help u quick. Free wifi, get cash app lifesaver!

Dental Surgeries

The Dental Suite

7-9 Rutland St, Leicester LE1 1RB, UK – 0116 255 4373

The staff here were all incredibly warm and professional. The atmosphere here is brilliant, and my treatment (6 month smile) only took 3 and a half months. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. You're made to feel incredibly welcome and are very well taken care of.

I just want to say I am extremely happy with the way I have been dealt with by your company. For obvious reasons it was difficult for me to make the first appointment, however all of your staff have been absolutely lovely since I first walked through the door. Before I started this. I was worried about being judged, made to feel dirty etc and am genuinely surprised at how well I have been treated. This morning was the first time I have had any "real work" done, up to now its been photos, x-rays and planning. The two girls who looked after me today were genuinely brilliant. I walked in terrified, and left looking forward to getting on with the rest of it. Maybe dentistry has changed in the last 22 years since I last visited a dentist or maybe, by luck or judgement I picked a good one. Either way, keep it up and thank you.

Carisbrooke Dental Practice

238 London Rd, Leicester LE2 1RL, UK – 0116 270 7030

In my opinion this is the best private dental practice in the UK and they have been my dentist all my life. A centre of excellence where people are referred to for their expertise also from Europe etc. Also excellent for normal routine dental work. Everyone is very friendly and nervous people put at ease. Recently they helped Taylor a friend of mine and i would like to thank everyone at the practice for all their help and in particular Drs Havinder, Jeremy, Mike, Neil Francis and Brenda, the practice manager . Julie and all the reception staff, , Many Thanks and Best regards Shelley

I am extremely pleased and satisfied with the dental treatment I received from Dr Fiona Phillips. I was explained my treatment plan clearly and felt at ease with her. I highly recommend her for the expertise and professionalism, without a doubt this is the best dental practice I have visited.

Gipsy Lane Dental Practice

47 Gipsy Ln, Leicester LE4 6RJ, UK – 0116 268 1444

I've attended Gipsy Lane dental practice for many years and have been happy here. The dentist and staff have always helped me when I needed an appointment and have always seen me when I've had tooth ache. I have recommended them to many of my family and friends. Thank you to all the staff

Have been going for many years - first class service from front desk to treatment.

Dr Wood & Dr Cheesman Surgery

10 The Common, Leicester LE5 6EA, UK – 0116 273 7792

I love my local surgery, both Doctors work differently, but equally helpful and efficient. Reception staff are fantastically helpful, even when under pressure of demanding patients. Nurses are both amazing and empathetic, I would highly recommend this surgery.

Never had any problems. Always managed to see doctor when needed within opening times. Helpful, professional and considerate.

Gypsum Close Recycling Centre

Gypsum Cl, Leicester LE4 9AB, UK – 0116 454 1002

I come here regularly and think it's a good set up catering for just about everything that needs recycling. It's well designed and has a good area to park up and empty out your vehicle. The staff are helpful and friendly and you can pick up your recycling bags at the same time!

Good facilities with long openening hours. Unfortunatley I must have gone on a day when the staff were having a bad day as one in particular was less than helpful, with a bad attitude to go with it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Leicester

Santhi Restaurant

124 Granby St, Leicester LE1 1DL, UK – 0116 255 5511

Found this restaurant on google very close to the hotel. It had good reviews and we were able to book a table online. It was a Sunday night so not sure it would have been a problem to just walk in. You could easily walk past this as the frontage is not huge and you access the restaurant down some steep stairs so hold on. Pleasantly greeted as we walked through the door, the restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. The food was nice and cooked very timely. The menu was south Indian which meant some of the popular sides weren't on the menu but I enjoyed the meal nevertheless.

Was a decent place to eat. Big menu with a lot of variety. Worth trying. Heard the woman brag their chilli paneer is the best in town but didn't get a chance to see if that's true.

Chettinad Restaurant

146C London Rd, Leicester LE2 1ED, UK – 0116 319 2112

Friendly & fantastic food. I ordered the thali (mixed plate) to try different things & had enough to take home for dinner the next night. Well worth the price!

It was a great experience in Chettinad restaurant. The waiters are very friendly and the food is really awesome. I tried lamb madras and parata which is really fresh and delicious.i would suggest to try this one.

Timo - Wine Bar Restaurant

13 Allandale Rd, Leicester LE2 2DA, UK – 0116 244 8235

Service is great and the food is nice. The wine selection is perfect. It is an Italian restaurant and tu get that local feel. The scallops were amazing!

Timo's once again delivers. 8 of us went this evening, varied starters and main courses - all superb. Staff attentive and friendly. 4 of us had steak - amazing, melt in the mouth. We go there on a semi regular basis and each time the quality is always present.

Nursery and Preschools

373 Scraptoft Ln, Leicester LE7 9SE, UK – 0116 241 3351

Location, experience, Cleanliness and safety all in this nursery.

Nursery Rhymes - Leicester

13 Knighton Grange Rd, Leicester LE2 2LF, UK – 0116 270 2533

I cannot recommend Nursery Rhymes enough. We knew this was the nursery for us the minute we stepped through the door and we weren’t disappointed upon our daughter starting. In fact, we have been blown away by the care and support given to her. The staff in the baby room are fantastic and take excellent care of our daughter. She settled in super quick, with little fuss which is a testament to the staff in the baby room. The staff are extremely helpful and will always try to allay any concerns we might have. We also love love love the online parent portal which keeps up updated throughout the day. Thank you for taking such good care of our precious little person.

When I first visited Nursery Rhymes, I knew straight away this was the nursery for my daughter. I had visited a couple of other nurseries beforehand but didn’t get the warm and caring vibe as I did at Rhymes. The staff have been there since the nursery opened which I feel is a true testament in the caring and nurturing environment it is. My daughter started Jan 2016 in the baby room. The staff helped her settle in really well and aided with her child development, such as taking her on bus journeys to the park and developing her creative skills. She is currently in the toddler room where she gets to socialise and play with some great adults and kids. Great place to start your child’s education, highly recommend it.

Thanks you alaqsa thanks to a blah abeedah and all staff members .. Hopefully I can become a TA there soon inshallah ... ans be part of this beautiful adventure ... Oum aboubakr .

Krishna-Avanti Primary School Leicester

Evington Hall, Spencefield Ln, Leicester LE5 6HN, UK – 0116 241 9880

This school has caused so much contention . Strangely by the white English residents and the Evington Echo. It is strange that when a Mosque was built the then white English residents did not object but immediately put their houses for sale. Then two Muslim Schools were built and again no mention was made. But when a Hindu School was is made the residents, and Evington Echo start to complain. Is it because that because they know Hindus are an easy target? They dare not complain or raise any issue with anything Islamic or the parking which is appalling around the Mosque, the Madrasa,(Islamic School), the Madani High school. On a side note the teaching is superbly high, unlike the Madani school who has been guilty of failing Ofstead and diversity of pupils Having said that no non Muslims would send thier child to a Islamic school but a HIndu school whose ethos is all roads lead to Rome and when in Rome ....However some like the editor at the Evington Echo is scared the freedom of journalistic protocol doe not want any ramifications but is happy to attack passive religion!

Our daughter is currently at this school and she is flourishing. She absolutely loves it here, as do we. The quality and depth of teaching is fantastic as are the teachers who use a variety of methods to teach the children. I ( and many parents will agree with me ) have always found the atmosphere to be pleasant and supportive both towards students and parents. I can honestly say in the two years my daughter has been at the school we've never had a bad experience ( minus minor playground tiffs). ALL the staff are supportive and welcoming; the headmistress who is there to greet the students every morning, administrative staff, catering staff, teachers and assistants, site manager.. I could go on. In a nutshell this is an amazing school with equally amazing staff, we feel very grateful to be part of the school.
