We have been coming here for 40 years and now it has passed from father to son. It has retained the warm and friendly atmosphere it always had but the decor and food has improved so that it is now our favourite indian restaurant with takeaway and delivery service. It is small and often full so book if you want... More

Book ahead as it packs out, with only a small number of tables! Ate here many years ago when it was a cheap and cheerful eatery, its still cheep and more than cheerful but now also serving some of the best 'Indian' food in Oxford. The wedgewood's remained with the good service, but now the food is in a much... More

Always excellent food - particularly the specials. Incredibly warm and friendly staff with a family run vibe. It's my go to place whenever I have visitors from out of town and has never failed to impress.

Fabulous Indian restaurant and food. Fresh clean flavours, great choice of dishes including a specials board Waiters can give you good recommendations based on your preferences Distinct individual spices cleverly cooked and detectable Offer meat on the bone which is a rare treat & offers a deeper flavour Good drinks selection including top quality beers like Jaipur !

Saw that the restaurant was almost full when we were walking past so thought that it may be worth a try despite the somewhat bland decor with no wall hangings. We only had to wait for a few minutes for our table to be prepared. Good atmosphere, attentive staff, and decent food. In my view, only area in need of... More

We visited on a Friday evening with no booking, it was almost empty.Within half an hour it was heaving. Note: best to book! The service was terrific, and friendly too. We were very pleased with the food that we ordered which arrived pretty quickly. We both had one small gripe about the food, which would in no way stop us... More

The Standard used to be one of the last options when I was at Oxford. But it's really gone through a huge sea change. Was surprised, but currently one of the best Indians that I've tried (and I've had loads). Patia extra spicy was excellent, as were the samosas and husbands mixed. Only shame is that we live so far... More

Fantastic flavours and great value for a wonderful dining experience. The lamb was as fresh and tender as anything I've ever had. The vegetables cooked to perfection and delicately spiced. Great balance all round and some fantastic craft lagers to choose from. We will definitely be back soon!
