My husband and I lived in Jericho while we were in grad school, and the Standard was our go-to for takeout or an occasional date (when we could get a table, which is not always easy and merits a call ahead). They've got amazingly flavorful options in a variety of Indian styles, and the prices are incredibly reasonable. If you do take-out, your food is more often than not ready in less than 20 minutes, and the staff are always friendly and competent. Our favorites were the Palak Paneer and the Daal Makhani, and I'd recommend both to anyone, whether or not you're familiar with Indian cuisine.

Wonderful food and service on several different occasions. Particularly accommodating and willing to go the extra mile on large group takeaway orders. 100% would recommend.

Food is acceptable at best. Their attitude however: shocking. Owner is immediately impertinent and impudent unless you're from his target clientele 'profile': i.e Caucasian. Never experienced someone so insulting and with such a deep-rooted superiority complex.

We were passing the Standard last Friday and decided to call in on the off chance of getting seat as we hadn't booked. We were offered a table in the corner, but were told it was rebooked for 90 mins time, this was fine with us. We had poppadums and pickles for starters, lovely warm fresh poppadums, the only thing that was missing was the minty sauce. Lime, mango and onion pickle was nice. Mains were chicken dopiaza and chicken chilli masala, sides were mushroom rice and garlic nan, curries were lovely and just the right size portions, we weren't stuffed full. Bill £45, that was with a bottle of wine, so quite reasonable. We'll probably return, but will make the effort to book next time as several people that arrived after us were turned away, by 7.30 every seat was taken.
