Standard Tandoori has been feeding hordes of hungry Reading curry lovers for over three decades on Caversham Road. Just a short way from the town centre towards Caversham, Standard Tandoori call on generations of experience in Nepalese and Indian cookery to offer a South Asian spread like no other in town. Sure, you can pick up a chicken tikka or jalfrezi that is well above the usually expected standard, but for something a bit different we recommend taking advantage of Standard Tandoori’s delicious house specials – the lamb badam pasanda will warm the cockles of your heart, the sizzling platters of vegetables and chicken flavoured with a mango-based sweet and sour sauce could wake you from the dead, and of course a Nepalese restaurant of this calibre would not be void of authentic, irresistible momo dumplings smothered in a spicy tomato sauce. Standard Tandoori is a local favourite, so it’s strongly advised to reserve a table rather than show up and hope for the best.
The Standard has been an outstanding Indian restaurant in Reading for many, many years. The food is always excellent and very good value as well.
Welcoming though busy. Helpful service throughout. Lovely food. Although this was a busy Saturday evening the restaurant is well set out and it doesn't feel crowded. Service was attentive and efficient. Starters and mains were excellent.
very nice place to eat....the food was amazing........ the service from the staff was great. it was very clean and tidy. 5 stars from us
Good food and quickly served, took home a doggy bag as usual after choosing too much. Parking is a problem took our chances on the pavement.
Standard Tandoori is a lovely little restaurant with helpful and friendly staff and delicious food. It is clearly popular and busy, but parking is easy and it does not feel squashed. Decor is possibly a little dated.
The food was good. The service friendly, helpful and prompt. There was a plentiful selection of vegetarian food on offer. The beer was reasonably priced but not cheap. They were prepared to provide a doggy bag for over ordered food. Great
Very nice meal and good service. good value for money and nice atmosphere. A cut above other curry houses we have been to recently in Reading.
