Briar Meads Dental Practice

95 Briar Meads, Oadby, Leicester LE2 5WE, UK – 0116 271 0500

Have been going to this practice for many years with my family and have always found all staff to be very polite and professional. A special thanks to Dr Manji and Caroline for their great work last week.😀

A very kind, gentle dentist. My experience has been as good as going to the dentist can be. Everyone has been professional and caring.

Hampton House Dental Practice

Hampton House, 176 London Rd, Leicester LE2 1ND, UK – 0116 254 3500

Good dental practice opposite Victoria Park on London Road. Been going here for many years and the quality of treatment has been generally excellent. Parking is available at the rear with access through a fairly narrow gateway. It can be difficult to park at busy times, especially​ if you drive a big car! Paid for parking is available at Victoria Park's own car parks which are about 5 minutes walk away which have far easier access.

Been there for years. Only place I'd ever go to look after mine, and my families Teath

Westcotes Gp Surgery W2

2 Westcotes Dr, Leicester LE3 0QR, UK – 0116 254 7887

So good. Offers so many services. Really looks after me. Recommend!

Such a brilliant service. Called yesterday morning for advice from my GP, was booked a telephone appointment and he called me back within the hour. He sent my prescription straight to the pharmacy for me to collect that evening. Such a brilliant way of working, particularly for people like me that work all day. Definitely the way forward!

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.

Private General Practice Services

3 Knighton Grange Rd, Leicester LE2 2LF, UK – 0116 270 0373

Dr Piper and her team really know their stuff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone with complex health condition.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Leicester Royal Infirmary

Infirmary Square, Leicester LE1 5WW, UK – 0300 303 1573

We have had the most excellent service from all the staff. From the moment we entered the accident and emergency reception the whole team has been outstanding. surgery was the only option this happened at 01:30. They worked nonstop to ascertain the cause of the problem. And we have been treated extremely well by all concerned. Especially in ICU and ward 22. Some of the staff were at the end of a 12hr shift. But they were still working flat out. We are both very grateful for all there help and dedication

Had the misfortune to end up at A & E this afternoon. Within 2 hours I had been assessed, x-rayed and released. Absolutely superb service. Best in the world. Thank you.

Spire Leicester Hospital

Gartree Rd, Oadby, Leicester LE2 2FF, UK – 0116 272 0888

I have mixed feelings about this hospital. On one hand the only doctors who have ever given me their full attention and support work here. I'm so grateful to finally be on the path to a diagnosis. On the other hand, I have met the single rudest nurse here. I have been charged extortionate prices for medication that the doctor who prescribed it knew I couldn't take. He told me to try a lactose free diet to minimise my symptoms, then put me on tablets containing lactose. £59 for nothing is pretty ridiculous. Finally, I arranged what I thought was a consultation and found out on the day that it was a treatment that took half a day. A surprise endoscopy is never welcome.

I had Oral surgery today and the service was absolutely amazing. I did have to wait for about 3 hours before I was take down to theatre. But overall all the nurses/doctors and surgeons were very professional and very nice. I will definitely recommend spire to anyone. Thank you spire Leicester hospital for treating me well.

Took a little while to get back to me, but very helpful and friendly, think it was just a one off phone problem. Came and picked up the car and made everything very easy and straightforward. Would recommend

Great service. Very clear on the phone. I had called late on Saturday and was able to get the shell, engine and gearbox picked up on Monday morning. No hassle and friendly service.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Leicester

Nawaaz Indian Restaurant

159 London Rd, Leicester LE2 1EG, UK – 0116 319 5885

Wow! I am full! Brilliant food....brilliant service, and welcomed like family! Director Saab has done it again! A special dish made just for us...thank you Haque. The other great thing is that you can bring your own booze! A winner all round. 31st July 2018 After constantly visiting whenever I get a chance, I can not stress how wonderful this place is! I can not go over 5 stars otherwise this place deserves it. Never before have wee had this wonderful 10 star service! Always helpful, always accommodating.... even getting you ice for your alcohol that you buy elsewhere and bring in! Wonderful.... truly wonderful!

Excellent place, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice Indian meal. We (2 people) ordered a set menu for 2, and it was a huge amount of food, especially for the price. We had to take almost half of it home with us! We were also served a couple of extra dishes not mentioned in the set menu for no extra charge. The service was extremely kind and friendly, and the food appeared pretty quickly. If I had to mention a negative it would be that the curries weren't as spicy/hot as I had expected, but that could just be the dishes we ordered, and the food was so nice that it didn't matter how spicy it was. Seriously, just go there. I know I will next time I'm in Leicester.

North Bar and Kitchen

42 Hinckley Rd, Leicester LE3 0RB, UK – 0116 225 5961

A small independent restaurant offering very high quality food and drink. Small, fresh locally sourced menu. Friendly and attentive staff. We really enjoyed our gin tasting board. Our one and only visit unfortunately as my son has now graduated and left Leicester.

I came to North bar and kitchen for lunch, had a nice warm welcome and what I really liked is the price on there lunch set course! I had a rump steak burger with hand cut chips and it was so juicy and really is the best burger I have had! You can tell that it is homemade , not grease with a soft toasted brioche bun 👌🏻

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.

Great service... Lovely food. Would come again!

Best Islamic school..

Leicester Islamic Academy

320 London Rd, Leicester LE2 2PJ, UK – 0116 270 5343

I have been sending my son to LIA from the age of 8 months and although I worried that I was sending him too early, I now realise it was one of the best decisions I could have made. His development over the past 8 months has surprised both myself and my husband, and I have no doubt the LIA has had a substantial part to play in both his ability to understand what we say as well as his ability to communicate what he wants to do. I’ve attended stay and play sessions at the school and have seen for myself just how happy my son is in the nursery environment and how at ease he is with all staff members. As for the staff, I have a great appreciation for their commitment to providing the best service of care to not only my child but all children who attend the nursery and school, for making each day fun as well as educational and for looking after the children as if they were part of their own family. I admire the Islamic values the school instills in the children from a young age, and look forward to seeing how much more my son develops in the long term.

I have two children who attend LIA and one child who attends LIA gems (nursery) Coming from London, where a good education system with a solid Islamic ethos is hard to find, I can honestly say that Leicester is extremely lucky to have such a great organisation on its door step. Their most recent ofsted report shows that they have achieved a good standard in all aspects. Having read the report it's clear that LIA are not far off from being outstanding. Having met them nearly all of them, I can say with confidence that the staff, from the head mistress to the teaching assistants, are extremely dedicated professionals. They work in unison towards the same goal which is to enrich the lives of the children through solid education and look to build characters through good ethics and morals. I personally have attended nearly all parent governor meetings and have always been left thinking that my children's futures are in safe hands. I am made to feel like my opinion is truly regarded and heard. But most of all I can clearly see the difference that LIA has on my children. My boys come home happy, excited and encouraged. I can honestly say that they actually have really look forward to going to school and nursery. I can see how much quicker they are learning and at a better standard then most of my friends children of the same age. In conclusion I can't find fault in LIA. With more support from the parents and some funding I can see it growing from strength to strength. The governors and headmistresses vision for the school is sky high and that's what I want for my children.
