Still great curry. Nothing flashy, no pretensions to haute cuisine - just really well executed classic British (!) curry.

We were a group of American teachers looking for good Indian food on the last night of our week long seminar in Oxford. This place did not disappoint. Intimate and colorful, with very attentive service. We hoofed it from Hertford College, right across from the Bodelian-- a solid fifteen minute walk. The Standard is located in the Jericho neighborhood-- very... More

I was visiting Oxford with my son for the Uni open days and a friend recommended this restaurant. Really glad they did, it was a real treat. The food was freshly cooked and of the highest standard for taste and quality. Excellent choice of drinks too. I chose an artisan lager from Scotland which really complimented the food and was...

The food is fresh and tasty. The restaurant is clean and modern with Indian furniture. The service is always helpful and pleasant. The location is great for lunch or dinner before a movie or drinks. Our kids love going there as well!

Ordered a takeaway from here last week. Had never ordered from here before but fancied trying somewhere different. It was delicious! The best peshwari naan I've had! Very good value and was on time bonus! Will be ordering again.

The Standard is one of the best Indian restaurants--no, one of the best restaurants--I've enjoyed in a while. The food is excellent, the atmosphere was simple but pleasant, and the service was perfect. We had tandoori chicken marinated to perfection, lamb Saag in a mildly spicy garlic and spinach sauce, and tamarind chicken with a rich, creamy sauce. All of... More

Having not dined out for a number of months I was looking forward to visiting one of my favourite Indian restaurants in Oxford....as always not disappointed. In fact I was so happy to be back sampling their delicious menu, it was like meeting an old friend again and forgetting just how nice their were and how good they make you... More

We ordered a tamarind chicken, a veggie dish plus a naan and rice. All of it was average. The naan was a bit undercooked. 2 and a half stars I'd say.
