A bit ordinary

Impromptu visit with a friend on a Friday evening. I have visited this restaurant a few times over a number of years and the decor seems unchanged and is starting to feel a little gloomy (circa 79) to be honest. The dishes we chose are favorites elsewhere but were heavy and uninspiring. This... read more

I have struggled to find a good curry in central Reading and came across this one after reading some reviews. The restaurant is located outside the town centre. The building looks good and inviting. On entry I found it however claustrophobic and overcrowded on the evening I went to. I know this is a Nepalese/Indian restaurant and to be honest... More

Dropped in for a quick meal en route to my hotel, sadly I fear not my wisest decision. The decor is starting to show its age, chairs and carpets being worn and slightly shabby. My meal was sub par for what I have come to expect from most Indian restaurants in the UK, having said that I usually choose via... More

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
