About Bantawala by Masala Twist
This was a great find and I'm already looking forward to returning!
The Manager, Dylan, had the customer service spot on! He was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The menu is plentiful and he kindly offered to help us, listening to what our preferences were and choosing what he thought we would like, and he didn't disappoint!
The food was so delicious and, even though there was plenty of it, I wasn't left with that bagged up sick feeling you can sometimes get with curries. I honestly could have tried some more, it really was THAT good! I loved the fact it was authentic and different from the standard 'British' Indian meals.
The service from the other staff was brilliant too, they were all really lovely.
The bell is an excellent touch and I happily rang it!
Thanks to Dylan and all the team for a great dining experience. See you soon!
Excellent food and perfect service
Really enjoyed the street food, was a lovely change from the usual Indian curry. The portions are really generous and only need a few to share. Every member of staff was friendly and attentive. Excellent value for money and will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely meal!
Authentic Byres Road Indian with modern twist
Masala Twist is an Indian restaurant and curry house set on the bustling Byres Road in the heart of Glasgow’s West End. It offers traditional Indian fare with a modern twist, making the most of the freshest local produce. The restaurant is fresh and modern with warm and friendly service.
Mince and tatties curry?
Masala Twist’s menu is influenced by locations across India and tries to offer alternatives to the standard Anglo Indian curries. You could go for the Bombay bakra originating from Maharashtra – lamb simmered until tender in an aromatic blend of spinach and mustard leaves. If you’re a fan of South Indian curries, the king prawn chettinad sounds delicious – king prawns sauteed in a piquant pepper sauce with chopped green chillies.
It also has a number of specialty curries that you definitely wouldn’t get in your standard Indian restaurant. The Junglee Khargosh from Rajasthan is tender rabbit cooked with a host of exotic chef’s special spices or you can go for a venison alternative.
Mention must also be given to the mince and tatties curry – an Indian twist on a Scottish classic.
If you prefer to stick to the classics, your chicken tikka masala and friends are all on the menu too. The vegetarian menu is inspired by the lush market gardens of India and has an extensive selection.
