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.

Excellent food, great service and good value for money. Tandoori mixed grill and mushroom balti highly recommended. Will be visiting again.

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.

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.
