About Us

Serving authentic Bengali and South Asian food, The Standard is one of Oxford's longest-running restaurants, run by the same family since opening in 1972. Opposite the Phoenix Cinema, we are located in the heart of the Jericho area of Oxford. Using local produce as much as possible, the food on offer consists of familiar classics, daily specials and an extensive vegetarian menu. Combined with a great selection of specially chosen wines and craft beers, we are the ideal venue for lunch or dinner.
