This restaurant had a steady stream of diners entering the restaurant during our meal - always a good sign. After ready the reviews, we popped in on an early Thursday night, and they easily accommodated us. The waitstaff were friendly and prompt, answering our questions easily. We ordered the lamb passanda, brinjal bhaji, and saag dal, along with a side... More

To be fair I juggled with the whole 5 or 4 star question. I went with 4 because although The Standard is good and does not really fall down anywhere, it is not 'excellent'. Saying that mind, if you are looking for Indian food i do not think you will be disappointed. Food 4.5* Service 4* Restaurant 4* Cleanliness 5*... More

Visited on my own whilst on business, the restaurant was busy so I didn't think they would want a single client taking a four place setting, but they were very helpful and sat me down. I'd already viewed the menu on line so I was able to order fairly quickly. The food arrived even quicker, and it was good. Tasty... More

Some Indian meals we've had in the last year or so seemed to be using chilli as a way of disguising the mediocrity of the food, resulting in absurdly hot dishes which had little of substance behind them. This was a much more sensible affair, with the tastes coming through without the meal being bland. A shame a lot of... More

We visited midweek, and were early so lucky to get a seat, soon after we arrived it filled up and people were having to wait. Always a fairly good sign. The decor is understated and ambiance not overpowering. We kicked off with poppadoms and chutneys, which were all very tasty, the lime pickle had some heat and sweetness and was... More

Always a reliable option for a good curry in Oxford. A good menu with some more unusual dishes. Food comes quickly, and in my experience has always been tasty. Service really friendly and attentive.

The Standard might not be amazingly avant-garde or original but what it does, it does well. It's inexpensive, tasty, reliable, and fresh, and the portions always seem quite generous, too. Its interior isn't huge but it's got a great location across from the Phoenix Picturehouse and the takeaway service is excellent. Give it a try.

The food is excellent: a good selection of curries is complemented by some tasty and out of the ordinary specials. The service is brisk and extremely courteous. The location is convenient, close to the Oxford City centre and right in front of the Phoenix Picturehouse. The late opening hours are ideal for a good meal after as much as before... More
