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.

Nothing pretentious , just great value, excellent service, fresh tasty food. Chicken patia very good, and willing to come up with something off menu for my wife. Kids loved the korma, very generous with enough boxed up as takeout for their supper. £60 for poppadum starters me mains and sides with soft drinks and 1/2 litre of very good rose.

We had the best meal from here. Beautiful food! The vegetables were really fresh. I had a lentil, spinach and Garlic saag dish. We will definitely use this restaurant again. Highly recommend.

We visited here last night for my Dad's birthday. Having been here many times before I knew it was good but my family were in for a treat as they had never been! the service is always excellent, the food is perfectly cooked and not at all greasy or heavy. My Dad and I had the special of the day... More

Been coming here for years and genuinely is the best of the best. I've tried half the menu and it's all exquisite. The specials are always brilliant and innovative. And the craft beers also set it apart from all others. The Jaipur IPA is a particular favourite

This place has undergone a bit of a facelift recently and has morphed from a flock paper retro leftover into something much better. Now it's all about the food and service, which is good news. The service is excellent, friendly, attentive, not pushy. Good advice given when requested. We were four adults and enjoyed a tasty and varied meal including... More

Nothing wrong with the food its just not the standard promised in the name. I am sure with a little bit of effort a standard can be achieved.

Possibly the most dull and uninspiring Asian food I have ever eaten. I can cook better and that really is saying something. Avoid like the plague.

We were a birthday party of 14; the restaurant had asked us to decide before the meal if we would eat from the set menu or sharing menu, and we paid £10 deposit per head. We opted for the set menu, which has a choice of 1 or 2 courses, with a choice of 5 or so starters, 5 or... More

Always enjoy a visit to The Standard. The food is really good with none of the sameness you sometimes get in Indian restaurants. The guys who run it are friendly and helpful and they work hard to make your evening enjoyable. The place is quite small so you can feel a bit rushed to eat at times but hey, that's... More
