“Go here.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

You're looking through entries in Tripadvisor, wondering which to pick, maybe you don't know the town. This is the place you're looking for. The menu does not overwhelm you, but has a broad array of dishes to suite your taste, just ask any of the extremely knowledgeable staff for suggestions. Portions are perfect for sharing, but fits well for single dining too.
But you really just want to know if the food is good:
Consistently amazing. Incredible value for taste.
Will go again.

Reviewed September 6, 2012

Delicious flavours but fresh and light at the same time. Excellent service and reasonable prices. Well worth the visit.

“Absolutely Delicious”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Even on a Sunday night this restaurant was busy which really says it all.We were glad we had booked in advance.
we received a very nice welcome & were quickly shown to our seats, once great care had been taken that the table was properly laid.
The menu contains all the old favourites but also some interesting dishes that were new to ourselves.
Food arrived promptly after ordering & was absolutely delicious & up there with one of the best Indian meals we have ever had.
The Standard certainly deserves all the praise & good reviews people have given it & we will recommend it to other friends & family.
The meal was very good value for money.

“Superb, as always”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Brilliant staff, brilliant food, and much improved by the redecoration in the last year. The menu is a tad small compared to other places, but that's because every dish is distinct, memorable, and worthy of its place. Can't recommend more highly.

“Excellent dinner, what I expected after being away from the UK in so long”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

This was my first time back to the UK in 19 years. I was visiting relatives and decided to choose The Standard due to the reviews. The food is excellent, the staff are very friendly and the service as good. The place was packed by 9 PM on a Thursday night. We all have a great time. I would recommend this resturant for sure!
