Mother's Day Special.

I could not have chosen a better place to bring my mother for Mother's Day. She loves spicy food and this was just right. The food was perfect the service was on point and we will definitely be coming back in the near future!

I love this restaurant and visit regularly with family and friends. I have previously reviewed it but this time my review is of the Sunday buffet, which we have been frequenting every Sunday for the last few weeks - we have had family staying with us and for them it is a real treat! The food is tasty and varied... More

Was looking for a place wherein rice and roti varieties are served. Got to know about this place and been there for lunch couple of days. This restaurant offers buffet covering rice, dal, poori, aloo paratha and fruit salads etc.,. the food was yummy and hygenic but could have been bit more spicy. But, I understood from the hotel staff... More

Overnight in the nearby Crowne Plaza hotel … as always prefer to eat out where possible, So with a work colleague visited the “Standard Tandoori” Bit nondescript outside, but inside modern in design, bright and staff welcoming. Reasonable number of choices on the menu, we went for Poppadoms & chutneys to start – this was a bit disappointing, 3 chutneys,... More

We first went to the Standard Tandoori over 20 years ago and do not go often as we are rarely in Reading. Frankly it's a little surprising that any restaurant survives that long but now I see why. We visited for the first time in ages and were really impressed. The service was excellent, the food more than plentiful and... More

We haven't been to the Standard Tandoori for years! The food was still very good and not over priced, however service was slow, we arrived at 8pm and didn't get your meal until just before 9. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. It would have been nice to see some more Nepalese dishes on the menu. If you don't... More

Fantastic food, fantastic service, fantastic restaurant! I can not fault it! The food is delicious and come in such huge portions. The staff are very friendly and make you feel comfortable and the restaurant is very family orientated. The ambiance is so calm and peaceful which makes you enjoy eating your food.

Having read some of the reviews I was a bit worried about visiting the Standard Tandoori. However, we had a lovely evening. Staff were really attentive and did not charge for my main meal which was too hot for me to eat.

I am a big fan of Tandoori. I like to try new places and I have been to most of the Indian Restaurants in Reading now! We actually walked out of the River Spice because we got no attention from the staff there and decided to give this place a chance. Warm welcome and seated in a good manner.... but... More

Went with a large group of friends on a Friday night and had a great time. Good service, superb food and great value. Love the Standard Super - yeah, I know, it's only chicken tikka massala - but it's delicious. Stand out dish - the marinated sea bass. Fabulous. Very sad to read the unfavourable reviews. Also a bit alarmed... More
