I had their food on the 3rd of Feb with office colleagues as one of them had been there before, so took his advice and went for the Chicken Tamerind curry and mango lassi (as drink). The lassi was the best I had in a long time so I had 2 half pints and the curry was also very well cooked and had a different taste then what we get usually in most Indian restaurants. Will definitely go there again!

Visited here for dinner after work a few weeks ago. I wasn't disappointed at all.
Was made to feel extremely welcome (dining alone) and was given super recommendations from the friendly staff.
The quality of the food was outstanding, full of flavour and generous portions. Also a good choice of beer!
I will definitely be back again!

First visit in a while.

I had forgotten how good a place this is, really fresh aromatic and varied flavours just as an Indian meal should be.

Good friendly service and ever customer focused, i.e. Suggested Black Dhal which was taken on board.

Love the daily offer which on past experiences is always good.

After a very enjoyable day in Oxford my wife and I (unfortunately) decided to visit the Standard - soley based on TripAdvisor reviews. The food lacked proper seasoning and was not prepared properly. Portions also small and the 'standard' of food was quite mediocre.
Seriously, 'the best Indian in Oxford' as some reviews have quoted?! I feel sorry for Oxford - very disappointing.
