A friend and I went to the standard after hearing many good things. They have specials on a board out side which was pretty inviting. Food was good a sold 4/5 affair but the restaurant is tired old and I couldn't help feeling the chairs were a little grubby? I have know problem with things being old, there is a... More

One of my local colleagues highly recommended this Indian restaurant, so we gave it a try. It is a cozy little place with very friendly and helpful staff. My colleagues and I ordered a selection of starters and different well spiced main courses - all of us liked the selected dishes very much. On my next trip to Oxford I... More

This is the best Indian restaurant in Oxford and now they also deliver take away, I have tried many Indian restaurants in oxford and this is by far the best, really tasty food with lots of flavour, the chicken korma even tastes of coconut which is not usually the case with other Indian restaurants. Would defiantly recommend this restaurant.

The Standard is anything but standard. It is, by far, my fave Indian restaurant in Oxford. Get in early for the seat at the window. We LOVED this place.

Having walked past this restaurant many times & never ventured in. Was curious after reading the good reviews here & decided to try. Was a quiet Sunday as we had the place to ourselves, but this didnt detract from the experience at all. Music was as it should be, quietly in the background & not obtrusive. The waiter was very...

Came here after hearing from others about how good it is. We found it difficult to get a reservation short notice, but this is testament to how good the place is. It is such a refreshing change to go to an Indian restaurant and not be met by the same oily, gloopy orange sauces with bits of meat floating in... More

Really love The Standard, we've eaten both in & had takeaways and can honestly say that they are consistently serving curry of a high quality standard (no pun intended!). I tend to go for a main course off the specials board as these are always very taste & packed full of flavour. I really liked the chicken curry with pumpkin... More

The Standard has been a fixture on Walton Street forever, but since its redesign a couple of years ago it's become the best Indian restaurant in Oxford. It still serves all the classic curries, but with daily specials that draw on Southern Indian cuisine or from further afield. Dependably good cooking, friendly service, a surprising list of craft beers and... More

I think this is the best Indian restaurant I have ever been here in Oxford... it's small and cozy, friendly stuff and lovely food! Also, not expensive at all! I would definitely recommend it!

Unpretentious, quality food. Good value, and pleasant service. You always know what you're getting with the Standard, and you're unlikely to be disappointed.
