we were a group of ten and had an enjoyable evening with some very good food indeed, but would say that my curry was lacking a lot of chicken meat where generally curries are pretty generous in this respect but it was tasty. I think...More

Walton St is very lucky - as it has two very good Indians. Jamal’s noisy and full; Standard quiet and reserved but both great food. Staff not unfriendly - just not that welcoming either - my 17 year old said the lady was ‘scary’.

After reading some reviews we thought we would give it a go and try this place out. Grease puddle with the sauce... I couldn't get a sense of traditional Indian cuisine. Service was prompt which we couldn't grumble about. Such a shame! We won't be...More

Always good with great food and lovely service but the special lamb chops tonight were, in fact, the best lamb chops I have ever had. Nothing more to be said..........

We absolutely love this place. The food is fantastic - full of flavour and not oily (unlike many other local Indian restaurants!). The saag paneer, chana masala and vegetable patia are all amazing! The restaurant is really cosy and intimate, and the staff are lovely....More

This is our second time back to the Standard and it’s been fantastic both times. Service is spot on - not intrusive but very attentive and speedy. The food is delicious - we’ve had the Pathia, Muktaaj, Makon and Korai and would recommend them all....More

Pretty disappointing dinner! The food was fine but with very little taste and spicy. It is very far from real Indian food... The service is friendly and the atmosphere is nice but not sure that I will go back. It is nothing special!
