Visited on a Saturday evening, walls are nice, the chairs are really bad, and paper table clothes to cover badly stained real table cloths, could not quite make out who were staff as the dress code is vert casual! When the food did eventually arive it was very bland.

We had a takeaway delivered. It took slightly longer than quoted to arrive but was well worth the wait. Everything was fresh, hot and fragrant. The king prawn shashlik was especially delicious and the chicken karahi wonderfully spicy. A favourite was the carrot chutney which was fresh, sweet and sour. Great food and friendly service whether you eat in or... More

I have been many times with friends and work colleagues. Some of my Indian friends tell me it is the best restaurant for vegetarian dishes. Shyam and the team provide excellent service without being over attentive. But the real reason to go is the food. Let them help you with your choices and you will not be disappointed. The best...

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
