We have been going to the Standard for meals and take-outs for nearly 20 years. The food is usually excellent and has been very consistent over the years. The side dishes (vegetarian) are especially good - try the sag paneer and bhindi. Chicken tikka massala also recommended.

It is pretty standard.I don't know if the meat dishes are excellent - I guess they are as my carnivore friends love it & go there regularly. But the veggie dishes are - standard. Not such a wide variety as other places we go to regularly but nice enough.
Good value too.
Staff are very pleasant though and always great us all like old friends!

Moved to Highbury this year and have been very impressed with The Standard after a number of dine-ins and takeaways. The staff are lovely, always offering exemplary service and the food is delicious and really good value for money. I haven't found a better indian in the area.

Shared mix veg platter, two curries, one side, shared rice, two nans, 1 large beer, 1 regular beer, 1 large coke came to £45.

Poppadoms and dips were decent enough. Plenty of dip and the quality was average.

The mix veg platter was rather drab, one veg samosa and a onion bhaji which had been flattened. Definitely not fresh which is usual for this sort of starter but it also lacked much flavour. Disappointing.

Things started to improve with the mains. The nan was fluffy and was a decent size. Curry wise the spicy Paneer we had lacked a bit of flavour and despite being labelled as hot, didn't have me reaching for a drink once - but it was nice. The Tikka Masala, sweet editable and reasonable. The cola out of a bottle which was showing its age - basically flat. Usual selection of beers. The curry sauce slightly too runny.

I fancied a curry, we got a curry, I wasn't left excited though and I'd probably give another curry in the area ago before a repeat visit here.

The food was reasonable and the staff friendly. A well rounded average restaurant.
