This family run restaurant is a firm favourite of mine; the staff are friendly, restaurant is always full (always a good sign) and the food is out of this world!! I opted for the Goan king prawn curry with a paratha instead of rice. The prawns were ENORMOUS but it was the sauce that blew my mind; it was delicious!... More

This was our last meal in England, and it did not disappoint the Vindaloo and naan were well done and the beer was cold. The service was friendly and efficient. I wish this was my local Indian Restaurant!

We popped in on Saturday night with some friends for a cheeky Saturday night curry. At booking time, the staff rearranged the tables so that we could squeeze in and warned us that we might have to shift for the second sitting (this didn't come to pass but it was good that they were clear). The waiting staff were great:... More

Very delicious Indian food served at a very clean establishment. Try the mixed grill platter and their vegetable biryani. Their mango lassi is very delicious and definitely order some of the curries as they all seem to be made very well. Excellent service.

The Standard has been our favourite Indian restaurant for years! It's perfect for night out with friendly. We also do take-away when we're in town. The quality of the food is outstanding - so far we never had a kind of just mediocre meal! Even if it's not the most creative choice nor the best meal on the whole menu,... More

We went for the first time a couple of weeks ago and have been back 3 times since. Says it all, really. Easily the freshest, tastiest curry I've had. The vegetables actually taste like veg! And totally delicious at that. We're both vegetarian and have loved everything we've tried - the vegetable dhansak especially. Nans are fab as well as... More

We were here for dinner tonight with friends. We came right after the opening , Ondrej waiter was very helpful in selecting food. He gave us recommendations and the final selection was amazing. We tasted lamb, chicken and vegetable curry as well. I recommend that you visit.
