On this occasion, the specials, of tandoori lamb chops were recommended and they were mouth-wateringly delicious!! A generous portion accompanied by a side salad and yoghurt dip. Really hope this becomes a regular on the menu! We literally had a meat feast for starters by...More

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

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!

Went for lunch with a friend, rather quiet which I was told was very rare. Lovely food and lovely friendly staff. Highly recommended.

The Standard is pretty much as its name implies-- good quality food that probably won't blow you out of the water, but makes for a decent meal nonetheless. Staff is friendly, prices are reasonable by Oxford standards, carry-out is ready in 10 minutes. Ask for...More
