Our return visit to this restaurant was very disappointing The restaurant was busy but we were served quickly. The food unfortunately was very average. The mango chutney was runny liquid. The lamb shaslik was over cooked. The Tarka dal was bland and tasteless

The difference here is that everything is really freshly prepared and all the dishes have different and individual sauces.

The staff are very friendly and efficient and the food is delicious! We don't go to Oxford often, but we when we do, we head to The Standard for an evening meal. Can't fault the service, ambience and food.

Dropped in on chance and managed to get a table for 4 on the understanding we had to leave by 8:30pm, but even with that there was no rush or stress to the way we were served. Friendly staff who were attentive and efficient. The...More
