I have been to Masala Twist many times now and find it warm and welcoming. The food is buffet style at lunchtime and quality is excellent. Unfortunately they don't replenish the food often enough and I have had to ask for more as there was no meat, chicken prawns etc left just sauce.

For starters we ordered a chicken and a veg pakora to share. Both delicious. Mains I had the South Indian Garlic Chilli chicken which was the way I like it, really... More

Walked in off the street with no booking. Nice atmosphere. Had a few popadoms to start. Decided to share a korma with one rice and a cheese naan between 2 of us. Plenty of food to go around. Neither my partner or I are big fans of spicy food, unfortunately the chicken korma was extremely spicy, we couldn't finish the... More

We have been here several times, the menu is very similar to most indian restaurants, but they excell in quality, the chic pea curry that is served with the chicken chatt is stunning. The level of service is of a standard that makes it standout, very friendly with a family run feel, makes you feel very welcome. I always recommend... More

Our family visited to this restaurant recently and ordered to have hyderabad buriyani being their special dish. However, it was not great at all. The quality of the buriyani is very poor and cannot be compared with the standard of London restaurants. Buriyani price is quite expensive but poor taste. The staffs are very helpful and provided very good service.... More

We have eaten here a few times and have really enjoyed it. The nan bread is amazing! The staff are outstanding. The only one thing is the pre theatre menu is not given as standard and has to be asked for. Worth every penny!

We were really impressed with the range and quality of food in this stylish restaurant. Prices seemed a little expensive on first inspection but the final bill was less than anticipated. What made this visit even more special was the friendly warm advice given by our most helpful waitress.

My partner and I stumbled across Masala Twist on an evening walk in the West End. We couldn't have asked for better food. The service was fantastic and fast. The food was fresh and delicious, the menu had a great selection and the atmosphere was quiet and lovely. We will definitely be back 😍
