Great place to eat Nepalese and Indian food. On busy nights (many) service can be a little slow so do not choose a table in a corner as you will need to seek attention but the food is great and one of the very best as well as consistent in Reading. They have several speciality dishes that provide a twist... More

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!

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.

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

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.
