The quality of the food is always exceptional here and seems to get better and better each time I visit. The staff are extremely courteous and this restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. I definitely recommend it.

Have never written a review for this particular restaurant. We visit it whenever we go to see family in Reading. Staff and food always excellent, really good portions and lovely variety.

We booked into the Standard Tandoori Nepalese Restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As it was a lovely evening we walked from our apartment near Prospect Park to Caversham Road about 4 km and were quite hungry when we arrived. We were seated near the bar which gave us some atmosphere in a large and rather quiet restaurant. We ordered... More

Know this restaurant from old when I am sure it had tropical fish in tanks in the middle of the restaurant and one that served up some good curries. So armed with the memories of previous visit I went again. Apart from the fish not being there I think the name was the same and the decor much as I... More

After seeing great reviews I thought I'd check out this place so went with some friends for a typical curry dinner. I've been to several curry houses in this sort of price range so it's easy to compare. I had the tandoori half chicken and it was OK at best (like the title - not bad, but not particularly good...

Stunning food accompanied by wonderfully attentive staff. We have also tried the buffet on Sunday which was a nice change and good opportunity to try some new dishes. Meanwhile we keep coming back nearly every week for more! Standard Tandoori has certainly become our local over the last 3 years and we would (and have!) recommend it!

Title says it all. Think it was because I was a single dinner as the two groups in there got fairly good service. It wasn't as though they were rushed off their feet. The groups didn't turn up until half-way through. They just couldn't be bothered with a single diner.

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
