Oxford is not a good place for Indian food,but the Standard is an exception. The "specials' tend to be particularly good.

As an Oxford resident and a lover of Indian cuisine I know what a mixed big the Indian restaurants in the city are. The community of Jericho used to be able to boast the Bombay restaurant which sadly closed its doors last year (fortunately to be replaced by the wonderful Zheng restaurant). The Bombay set the bar pretty high in... More

This is a small, noisy, crowded restaurant which offers very good Indian food. There are some critical accounts of service in the rievews; ours was excellent

Great indian food -- best I've had in Oxford by far, and some of the best I've had any where. The food is attractive, made with fresh ingredients, and delicious. This is my favorite restaurant in Oxford. Only downside has been the delivery service. Delivery was slow, and the delivery person couldn't find my building (it's on one of the... More

This family run restaurant offers a wide range of Bengali and South Asian food - delicious and freshly prepared with good portions, it makes for a good supper ahead of a film at the Phoenix Cinema opposite. Pleasant with good service, like many local restaurants, the dining atmosphere is spoilt (occasionally) by noise from larger groups of supper goers (... More

I have nothing but praise to offer for the food and the service. It differs ever so slightly from some other Indian restaurants in offering a slightly more "artistic" presentation of the dishes. The portions are accordingly a bit smaller -- especially in comparison to Indian restaurants in the USA. But I've got no complaints about that.

Living in Birmingham I have never found an Indian better than at home but this place was amazing! Beautiful food and fab service. Definitely need to book though as the restaurant is quite small... Nice pubs and bars in the surrounding area too.

I have lived in London for 3 years and have not had as good Indian food any where in the capital. Took a day trip to Oxford with visiting family and this place was a wonderful end to the day.

No need for a huge review. Its very simple- probably the best Indian food I have ever had. From the homemade pickles through to the homemade lassies and helpful staff- fantastic. Cant recommend any higher- go and you will have a great meal :)

Excellent, tasty food in good portions with a wide selection on the menu. We had the Lamb Passanda (£8.95), a Patia Chicken Tikka (£8.45), rice, chapati, tea and a large beer. The total was £29.35 for two for this dinner. Very polite and discreet service in a pleasant atmosphere.
