“Absolutely fabulous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I had my hen do here last night and could not of asked for anything more. The spacious room upstairs was turned into my private party, with fabulous food a full buffet for all 30 of us, our own dj with karaoke and our own bar stocked with all the drinks we like. The service here is excellent, we were very well looked after. I could not recommend this restaurant enough, whether it be a meal for two or a private party this is definately the place to be. The welcoming staff take care of your every need, the modern decor makes you instantly comfortable and the food is fantastic. I will definately be returning.

“poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

our food arrived and was ok but not amazing but when we came to pay the bill the trouble started. we had a 2 4 1 voucher but the waiter who brought our bill said we could not use it. we asked to see the manager and he said he was the manager and although we had informed the restaurant that we intended to use the voucher when we booked he was not aware of it. a big confusion as to the conditions of the voucher followed with the manager disapearing into the back and in the end we payed and left. we will not be going back.

“Judge for yourself!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

I've lived in Urmston for 12 months and have avoided this restaurants because of negative comments if heard from other people. However I took the plunge yesterday and glad I did. The service was excellent, very attentive waiters. The starter and main course was delicious. Food and alcohol very resonably priced, especially with offer they have on a wed/thur evening! Interior nicely decorated, only down side is the size of the dining area, it's huge, therefore needs to be extremally busy for an atmosphere! Overall glad I went... would even say favourite indian in Urmston!

“Top food but not top prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We have been here several times but the restaurant has recently been renovated to a very good level.My only criticism in the past has been that it was a bit scruffy and the toilets were appalling. All that has changed now and the decor is really nice. The food is excellent ( and always was ). We went for our friends birthday treat and all four of us commented on the quality of the food and service. The waiter even brought us some free liquoers to finish off. You can pay far more in some Indian restaurants for food as good as this.
Well done the Standard and we will be back soon !.

“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We visit the Standard restaurant fairly frequently as the food is absolutely amazing, in some restaurants the curries are all the same with just a different sauce poured over them but not so at the standard. The food is well presented, never fails to please and all at a very reasonable price.
The restaurant has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and the dining area is spacious which makes a pleasant change as in some restaurants you are sometimes crammed in like sardines. You are never rushed and always made to feel welcome.
We always visit the main restaurant but they are now offering a buffet upstairs for under £10 per person with lots of choices too. They also cater for weddings, engagements etc.
We have eaten at most of the Indian restaurants in Urmston but none can match the Standard in terms of good quality food, great/friendly service and lovely spacious surroundings.
We highly recommend this fantastic restaurant for all ages,
