This restaurant gets better and better. I had tamarind chicken & my other half had chicken dhansak spectacular. Amazing flavours but you can still taste the chicken. An added bonus is they sell bottled Jaipur which is perfect with your curry. It doesn't get much better than this. Thank you

We had a sudden change of plan taking us to Oxford and looked at Trip Advisor to find somewhere to eat. We were first there on a Sunday lunchtime with a window table, which was good as the place is a bit dark further in. Service was good throughout and the food was extremely good. We had starters, main courses... More

Good selection on the menu, lovely food, and the best service in the city, I always enjoy meals at the Standard. Basically the only Indian restaurant where I can distinguish my food from what everyone else is eating by taste along. It's not very big so I would recommend booking in advance. It gets 4 rather than 5 stars as... More

Had a wonderful meal here just before the Easter break. We were staying for one night in Oxford and wanted a good curry - we weren't disappointed! The food was fresh, the service was brilliant and the menu choice was great. We weren't the only group to find the restaurant from Trip Advisor that night either. Highly recommend.

My family have been going to The Standard for the past 20 years and cannot recommend it highly enough. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed, décor neutral with warm lighting, staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful, and food is perfectly cooked. My husband and I dined there with two friends on Saturday night and despite the restaurant being busy (a... More

After going to a disappointing Indian Restaurant in Oxford a month or so ago, we decided to visit the Standard. We were not disappointed at all. We could not fault it in any way, ambience, food, service, excellent staff. A really good evening and certainly one to go back to

Been a favourite of mine for well over ten years. Great food, brilliant decor and mostly undiscovered by the student masses who fortunately tend to eat , drink and collapse in the largely inferior Indian restaurants located in Jericho. This is the dogs bollocks . Great staff also.

Great food, great owner and staff and some very interesting and mouth-watering dishes. Not a big restaurant so make sure you book at busy times and ask for the window table if possible so you can watch the comings and goings of Walton Street. Our family have been coming here for over 40 years from the first opening in the... More

Really glad we looked on TA for a midweek curry and went here. Has the feel of a traditional curry house, good atmosphere as; staff were very friendly and pleasant - plus it has a good turn over of trade all night. Certainly reserve your table - this is not a big restaurant at all, so you might be squidged... More
