I've been visiting the Standard for over thirty years and, despite some disappointing experiences in the last few years, nostalgia still made me go back recently. Sadly, it really is no longer the cool, buzzing eating place it used to be, serving excellent food to full houses. We went on a Sunday night, and apart from us and a group... More

We visited the Standard Tandoori for the first time for our 3rd year Anniversary on a Saturday evening. It was a last minute decision as our first choice restaurant was fully booked. We decided to give it a go. For a Saturday evening it was remarkably quiet, which wasn't a bad thing as it made the atmosphere relaxed and friendly.... More

I have been eating in this restaurant for a least the past 30 years. I gets very busy and your food can occasionally take a little longer to arrive than you'd like but the buzz of the place makes up for this. Great food, generous portions and the best onion bhajis I have eaten anywhere. Always my go to restaurant... More

Very nice decor and food was good quality, however at £65 for 2 people was somewhat expensive. The poppadoms were lovely but the dips a let down. Can recommend the Keema (minced lamb) curry

My son and I visited the Standard for the first time in a number of years as we now live in the North East. We used to visit here regularly when we lived in Reading and it was always a great experience. Anyway, nothing seems to have changed, the food was excellent and the service was first class despite the... More

Nice and comfortable restaurant with friendly staff. I was expecting to see a more unusual menu as Nepalese but the usual Indian dishes. Good food and good value but would have liked a little quirky.

I had the Aloo Chaat and Karahi Chicken. It truly was the best i'd ever tasted. Full of flavours and the service was prompt and quick. Faultless experience. Would defo reccomend.... More

I've been eating at 'The Standard' for almost 30 years. Yesterday's Sunday buffet was as good as the first meal I ate there Is that enough of a recommendation?

Came down here in 1990 and this was one of the first curry places we went to and it hasn't changed a bit. Solid curry, very friendly service and a good dollop of nostalgia- can't go wrong.
