Arrived in Reading tired and too lazy to cook. A local recommended the Standard for its tasty food. A large restaurant - so no need for reservation on midweek night, not sure about weekend (best check in advance). The local recommendation was right on the money - very tasty food. We had lamb, chicken and prawns - all good. Especially... More

We had a good meal with lots a variety at the Standard. I had the Jalfrezi and my colleague the mixed Sizzlar. food was tasty and filling. The only small gripe was the Peshwari Naan was not up to expectations. Washed down with an Indian beer this was just what we needed. Service was fast and friendly.

They were short staffed and run off their feet, but the waiter never once stopped smiling! The food was very nice, fantastic flavours and well presented. What can I say, fantastic place and we will definitely be going back

I went here with my wife and her parents for lunch and we all enjoyed our food. A nicely decorated & spacious restaurant with lovely welcoming staff. We have eaten here before and weren't disappointed. There is a good selection of curries & nepalese specialities to choose from, as well as the more usual fare, typical in indian restaurants. The...

I was there with my family, at lunch, including my "hyperactive" son. My son enjoyed the food, watching the fish in the pool and some very warm hosts who played with him and let him play. There were other families with children too. I also felt relaxed as I knew I didn't have to worry about my son annoying anyone.... More

Stopped here with a colleague as a traveler from the U.S., I always look forward to at least one good Indian meal while in the U.K. This place was enjoyable. The service was good, although it was not busy so good service was kind of a given. I started with the Mushroom Choila which was something I had not had... More

We know we can't do spicy curries, we also know what we can eat. Ordered a chicken korma and a lamb badam pasanda. My daughter could just about manage the korma but my mouth is on fire and I have a sweat on. Even the onion bhajees are spicy. Won't be ordering again, not to our taste. Had it delivered,... More

Revisited the Standard on a quiet Tuesday night, ordered the Vegetarian Set Menu excellent selection of courses far too much for one sitting; so packed the doggy bag for tomorrow's lunch.
