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

I visited The Standard Nepalese restaurant yesterday for lunch and wasn't disappointed. Even though the restaurant was very quiet it still had a great atmosphere and the food was fantastic. We had a selection of dishes which were all first class, but the "standard super" chicken dish was exceptional. The waiter serving our table was polite, efficient and met our... More

A nice place to go to but they seem to struggle getting the flavouring right with their hotter dishes unlike other Tandoori restaurants that I have been to and end up ruining the taste. The service is good for sure and they have a decent bar area but not a place that I would rush back to.

We had not eaten at the Standard for some time,at one time we were regulars, but our dinner last night reminded us what we had been missing. The flavours are wonderful (the chef has been there for over 25 years and knows a thing or two) . and so authentic. Plates were hot and presentation top class. The decor is... More

A restaurant with a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere and excellent service. The food was outstanding - full of flavour and well presented. The waiters were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We had perfect evening. I highly recommend it.
