Scottish-influenced creations, traditional favourites and eye-catching exotic meats make Masala Twist a memorable destination.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Open 365 days of the year, this large capacity venue feeds hungry punters in their masses on a Friday or Saturday night, while tranquility can be found here on weeknights. The size coupled with the accessible West End location makes Masala Twist ideal for larger group bookings and private hire. The interior is clad with traditional paintings and guests sit among faded pink booths, which age the establishment a little beyond its years. An already extensive menu grows larger by night with a selection of chef specials sitting among the Scottish-inspired Indian dishes, exotic meats (camel, kangaroo, crocodile and more), and a good selection of vegetarian dishes. The regional dishes offer a taste of all corners of India, which sets this menu aside from many others in town while still featuring go-to dishes such as chana masala or garlic chilli chicken – although the more adventurous diner deliving into the menu’s divergencies will be well rewarded. Service is efficient and the warm and welcoming staff ensure an evening here is well spent.
