We stopped at the Standard Nepalese Tandoori Restaurant in Reading / Caversham last friday. We had no plans or reservation, just pulled off the motorway and drove around until we saw somewhere that looked nice. The welcome was warm, friendly and the service remarkably attentive, literally 'a glance and a smile'. The food was absolutely delicious, fresh, fragrant and bursting... More

I visited The Standard Nepalese restaurant yesterday for lunch and wasn't disappointed. Even though the restaurant was very quiet it still had a great atmosphere and the food was fantastic. We had a selection of dishes which were all first class, but the "standard super" chicken dish was exceptional. The waiter serving our table was polite, efficient and met our... More

A nice place to go to but they seem to struggle getting the flavouring right with their hotter dishes unlike other Tandoori restaurants that I have been to and end up ruining the taste. The service is good for sure and they have a decent bar area but not a place that I would rush back to.

We had not eaten at the Standard for some time,at one time we were regulars, but our dinner last night reminded us what we had been missing. The flavours are wonderful (the chef has been there for over 25 years and knows a thing or two) . and so authentic. Plates were hot and presentation top class. The decor is... More

A restaurant with a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere and excellent service. The food was outstanding - full of flavour and well presented. The waiters were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We had perfect evening. I highly recommend it.

When we arrived at 7pm it was fairly empty but was soon very busy. Menu had all the usuals plus some special Nepalese dishes. Tried the Momos which were delicious but extremely spicy. Dishes were plentiful and served by lovely helpful waiters. Nice beer too.

Nice restaurant. Food was average. Nothing special. Could have been better. The tandoori was a little chewy and dry. Liked the rotis and daal. Good service and the staff were helpful.

My wife and l ate here for the first time on Saturday evening, we've eaten in at least a dozen other 'Indian restaurants' in Reading. We were greeted at the door and shown to a table. All started well, staff smiling and taking our order. Our drinks arrived promptly and were quickly followed by 'pops and picks', wish we'd taken... More
